Apocalypse Requirements for Survival[edit | edit source]
The things required of the world in order to prevent Paul from ending it all. This was outlined in Episodes 695: Cultural Flushing (with Piff) !.
- Within 10 minutes, he can acquire a reasonably-priced cheeseburger that he did not prepare himself
- Enough of a solitary environment where he can self-pleasure while using online inspiration
- This has been modified to include a requirement of internet connectivity
- Sometimes Paul addends this to "relatively new pornography"
- Paul assumes that if the above two are available, potable water would also be available.
