16 Choices

Estimated reading time — < 1 minute

Every individual will make 16 choices in their lifetime that will forever alter the course of humanity. No more than 16, no less than 16. These choices will be small, and at the time of decision, will mean nothing. They won’t have to be choices which result in action, they could be choices that result in inaction. But months, years along the way, when the full impact of your decisions and the chain reaction of events they have caused are felt… you may have been the one who caused the end of the world. And you will never know.

Please wait...

  1. @readman
    Technically that is only one decision… However it does show how a sandwich can save the world.
    “His name is samsam and he can can… Save the world”
    wooooo XD

  2. So here is my way of thinking it…

    I’m walking in the park and I see a dog. As usual I come to pet it and give it some love. The dog was holding a tennis ball in its mouth. As the dog left, the tennis ball slowly broke open and a colony of baby spiders crawled out. As they crawled out a huge mother spider crawled out. I noticed it was an egg sac for the spider and not a ball. Ignoring the monstrosities that had just happened, I walked away. A photographer photographing the trees of spring walked up and stepped on the baby spiders. The mother spider, madder than ever, bit the photographer, causing him to drop his camera. Someone noticed the man and called the ambulance. The man, now at the hospital, was sleeping and a woman walked in. She shot the man and ran out the window and killed herself leaving behind a duffle bag.
    Truth was that the photographer was a terrorist and just played to be a photographer when actually his plan was to set a nuclear atom bomb in that very park wiping out 4 states on the US and maybe even more. His mission was to set more in other famous places 10 years later. The woman who killed the “photographer” was a spy to kill the president of the US and bomb Europe. In the duffle bag was bombs and illegal guns. I saved the world just because I loved petting dogs….

  3. My friend is a jerk, but I am his friend because he is gave me free candy (hey, I was only in kindergarden). In college, for some reason I am still friends with him. I got into Princeton, but my certain little friend also got into the college due to his special method of cheating. On a BIG MAJOR NEED-TO-GET-100%-ON test, I didn’t know an answer. He convinces me to cheat, but me, being less experienced in this skill, got caught. I was suspended and was sent to court, where I was arrested and put in jail for 20 years. Meanwhile, there was a huge compotition at Princton where whoever got the best grades would become a crazy smart and awesome scientist person, and my "friend" got picked (this is weird b cuz princton is a law school, i think). I was gonna b picked, b cuz, according to the principal, I would have gotten an 100 on my testy test if i had not cheated on that last question. B cuz my stupid friend became a scientist, he had a bunch of crazy chemicals round him. He mixed a bunch of them together and somehow created slendermen out of his tallllllll father’s stolen corpse (My mr. friendy here might have had too many chemicals in his head), the rake out of his pet monkey (dont ask me. he was spoiled), and jeff the killer out of his still alive but kidnapped brother. B cuz of this, there have been many many deaths. hen I got out of jail, a crazy drunk guy took all of this beer and forced it down my throat. I became drunk. I punched and killed the drunk guy and fell drunkly down a sewer hole, where I died. There was a little alligator there who ate me, and became overpopulated and a threat. The mad scientist also decided to make a skin eating disease and drank it. He called the concoction "cancer" after his last name. All of this just because of a darn piece of candy. XD

  4. Hitler wanted to get into a famous art school, but they didn’t except him. He was mad, and turned into the monster he is. So if they had excepted him, well you know.

  5. I made the choice to read creepypasta tonight. Because of that choice, I’m likely not going to fall asleep. Due to this, the serial killer that would start his reign of terror with me decides to wait for another day so I am less likely to fight back. He is caught the next day. Due to this, I end up becoming the father of a child who I teach genetics to at a young age because I’m like that. The child will grow up to be a genius, but will be demented due to inheriting several mental disorders from me. He will then, when an adult, create a virus that wipes out most of mankind

    However, he would leave me and my future wife alive because we would be his parents and we would raise him to respect and love us. When we see what he did, we will get scared and say, `You’re movin’ with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air’

    I begged and pleaded with her day after day
    But she packed my suitcase and send me on my way
    She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
    I put my walkman on and said, `I might as well kick it’.

    First class, yo this is bad
    Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
    Is this what the people of Bel-Air Living like?
    Hmmmmm this might be alright.

    But wait I hear there’re prissy, bourgeois and all that
    Is this the type of place that they should send this cool cat?
    I don’t think so
    I’ll see when I get there
    I hope they’re prepared for the prince of Bel-Air

    Well, the plane landed and when I came out
    There was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out
    I ain’t trying to get arrested yet
    I just got here
    I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared

    I whistled for a cab and when it came near
    The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
    If anything I can say that this cab was rare
    But I thought `Nah forget it’ – `Yo homes to Bel Air’

    I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
    And I yelled to the cabbie `Yo homes smell ya later’
    I looked at my kingdom
    I was finally there
    To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air

  6. Just as I was reading this, I dropped some cooked rice on my pant leg. Now, I ate this piece of rice, and maybe, just maybe, because of that, I ingested a virus that will mutate within a human body, turning into something nasty, let’s say explosive leprosy. This causes the end of the world. All because of a friggin’ piece of rice. Bleh.

  7. Sounds just like Eichiro Oda’s style of story writing in One Piece, lol. Seemingly insignificant things are usually revealed to play a surprisingly big part much later.

  8. One day you go shopping, and though you want the eye catching yellow shirt, you know you need to go for a simpler solution for work.
    After changing into your new shirt, you walk down the street and find yourself blending into the crowd.
    When you look next to you, you see a woman in the shirt that you were planning to buy.
    A man also sees this woman
    He stalks her and eventually kills her
    This woman was going to cure the cold and flu viruses for good
    But because she was not around to cure them, the viruses mutated into super viruses capable of killing humans
    50 years from now the entire world is slowly dying off due to nothing more than the flu
    Would you be willing to sacrifice yourself for humanity?

    1. Actually, cold is from bacterias and shit, while flu is from viruses. And they CAN kill humans. They’re just easy-killing creatures. Just like zombies.

  9. I took a big stinky dump and flushed it, the corn from that turd could have fed the starving orphan watching me take a dump but will now die. If that orphan would have lived he could have had the son that could have diffused a nuclear threat between the nations of the world. but now we will have a nuclear fallout in 46 years.

    1. if too many people on creepy pasta start tothink too much it will create a hole in the time-space continuum thus destroying the universe as we know it. all because some guy decided to post a pasta that made people think

  10. Good for you Zombie.

    And I have and example to.

    I was riding my bike to swim team practice. And instead of turning right like usual, I turn left. I crash into some speeding drunk, who spins out of control and dies.

    If this person had lived, he/she would have gotten over their drinking problem. He/she would have gone to law school, and eventually run for president. As president that person would have established world peace, and democracy.

    So becasue I turned left, every single countryon this planet is part of the 3rd World War. (Or the 4th depending on how you see the war we’re in now.)

  11. Interesting. TL;DR

    So, basically, something like this can happen:

    I eat a sandwich, a sandwich that a group of ants wanted to eat. But, seeing that I’m eating it and there’s no way they’re going to reach it, they instead decide to look for food elsewhere They walk as far as several yards from my house, and catch the attention of some sort of ant-eating slightly poisonous spider. These ants come across a young boy eating lunch. The boy doesn’t notice as the ants begin to carry some crumbs back to their ant-hill. The spider, who was quietly stalking the ants, closes in on it’s prey. But, suddenly, the 7-year-old boy places his hand behind him, crushing the ant, and scaring the spider. The spider, scared to f*cking brick-sh*tting, bites the boy, but he doesn’t notice.

    Unknown to the boy, he is allergic to the otherwise harmless poison that comes from the spider’s fangs. Three weeks later, he dies. That boy would have otherwise grown up to form a domestic terrorist force, which, within twelve years, would be a serous threat to national security, and within fifty years, would have enough followers to secede several states from the United States government, within 90 years, overthrow the United States government, and within 200 years from now, start an ongoing Cold War with Britain, which would eventually end in the total destruction of every major city in every developed country in the world, and the death of approximately 2.5 billion people, just over one third of the world population
