Information
This site is as simple as it gets. You click the button and a random prediction on how and when the world will end is generated for you, including a shareable URL.

The way it works is that it will choose a random category and then send messages from a list within that category in a sequence that makes a little sense... This creates a weird timelapse of events which lead to the destruction of the world. It is far from perfect, but was funny to me at the time.

Origin Story
I created this site while I was bored on a holiday with nothing better to do. This was my way to relax, by thinking of ways the world could end using a webpage to serve them to me in random sequences. I also added dates which are relative to when the original prediction was generated. All the information is stored in the URL, which was something I had never really done before at the time. This was one of my earliest web projects and for that reason it is quite basic. No earlier versions of this project are available.
About me
I'm Tristan, a Dutch-British X-year-old living in the Netherlands. My early hobby managing gaming servers and communities sparked my passion for creating games, sites, and other types of digital content. I then went on to earn a BSc in Creative Media and Game Technologies at Breda University. I have been working at Spectral as a front-end developer since 2019.
