Zloduska...you're forgetting something crucial; if everyone in the US is dead...the world will be robbed of all countless yet to be, gripping episodes of 'Friends' and 90210! How will anyone, anywhere in the world know what to do or how to be? Combine that with the dog and cat overpopulation problem and well... some charismatic dog will likely rise up out of the chaos and enslave the human race... henceforth, he will probably declare himself 'Dog' or 'doG' and lead the lost 'packs' out of Egypt...thereby starting the whole thing over again...
