Just read a very interesting poem about the apocalypse by Mary Karr called "Disappointments of the Apocalypse." The  premise is essentially that humans pick a date for the apocalypse and then plan it out--quite unlike other renditions where it's the last thing we would want! I encourage you all to read it here. I especially like the last line, where a lasting piece of earth shoots out, like in Wall-e where Eva's mission is to find a plant amidst all the trash and lifeless dirt.

"And Man created the plastic bag and the tin and aluminum can and the cellophane wrapper and the paper plate, and this was good because Man could then take his automobile and buy all his food in one place and He could save that which was good to eat in the refrigerator and throw away that which had no further use.  And soon the earth was covered with plastic bags and aluminum cans and paper plates and disposable bottles and there was nowhere to sit down or walk, and Man shook his head and cried:  "Look at this Godawful mess."  ~Art Buchwald, 1970

And this is why I keep going back to see "Wall-E."
