Hail President Trump? Welcome to the Giz Hub of All Things Apocalyptic

By Tom Pritchard on at

Today is a huge day for America, and the world is watching on with fear. The so-called land of the free and home of the brave gets to choose between a pair of candidates who aren't exactly filling anybody with confidence.

By tomorrow morning, the USA will have a new president-elect, and it's going to be one of those two choices. Hillary is, well, Hillary, with her email scandals and 20+ year political career. Trump, meanwhile, is a very angry man with ridiculous hair and a horrifyingly lengthy rap sheet, who doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut. He also doesn't seem to understand why using nuclear weapons is a bad thing, and has speeches that makes Jeremy Clarkson seem angelic by comparison..

Whatever happens over the next however-many-hours, the results of this complete shitshow of an election aren't going to make too many of us erupt with joy. Is the end of the world nigh? With that in mind, here are all our posts to help you prepare for, and understand, the consequences of a potential impending apocalypse.
