I want to help make the list of who goes on ship B.SGT said:In The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy there is a story about a planet wich would be destroyed by a cataclysm. So the inhabitants build three large ships to transport the whole population to another suitable planet.
In ship A would go all the brilliant leaders, the scientists, the great artists. In ship C would go all the people who did the actual work, who made things and did things and in ship B everybody else.
The B ship was the first and only one to take off. The elite of the planet had made up the story of the cataclysm to get rid of the undesirables.
If someday we have the technology for that, we can send people who believe in such nonsense as The Earth Jumping Day to leave the planet.
