I wander through the wastes of what is left of the once green earth. A radiation came called Micro Organism Cerebral Radiation (MOC radiation). Micro organisms are within the radiation that target certain parts of the brain leaving only the animalistic and basic survival instincts of the brain. Scientists said the micro organisms used any radiation as means of a carrier into the host. And the radiation slowly rots the body to a certain extent. This makes the host, zombie like in appearance and personality. This spread through x-rays since millions are used every day, especially in the U.S. and Europe making them the source of the epidemic. The governments turned to nuclear defense destroying the world and bringing the downfall of the modern age. Those who lived through the bombings were more likely to survive if they had access to clean water and guns. Most people however don't have much ammo left accept for gangs that control small areas. No pun intended about the MOC radiation, it just came out that way when I came up with the idea.
About this creation
Gold used to be valuable, no point in it now. Only water, food, and ammo are of value now if they want to survive.
