I've read every bit of this thread three times. It really is one of my favourites on the site. On the first few pages there is a discussion about what sort of song best represents this timeline, well I've been with the thread for a while but have been a lurker so I feel it might be OK if I post my suggestion now. Threads - Portishead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6l8qQKdmvE While the timeline ended optimistically I was so sure it would end in horror I think this song represents it well. Imagine those droning sounds echoing over a ruined remnants of a nuclear city scape.
