* JustForPun - A number of comments about future results have some rather wry connotations, often also invoking the BondOneLiner. Two of them include one about a major work by LeonardoDaVinci which has needed restoration over many years including dehumidifiers. Now that people are no longer around to save it from degradation, "How long before nature finishes off ''The Last Supper''?" The second one mentions that the Taipei 101 building, the second tallest building in the world, which "is often said to look like a stack of [Chinese food] take out boxes. How long before nature ''takes out'' Taipei 101?"

* {{Irony:}} After ten million years, fossilized corpses of humans will be pushed a mile and a half underground, eventually transforming into the very oil they used to run their civilization.

* TimeAbyss: The only things that could really last into the far future are possibly the Hoover Dam, Mount Rushmore, and our fossilized remains.

* ShootTheMoney: The producers must have spent a small fortune on creating the CGI collapse of the Space Needle in Seattle, because they used it over and over again in the original special.

** This, of course (this is the Internet, after all), has lead to WildMassGuessing that it's the ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' 'verse, as it's said that humans just left Earth [[EarthThatWas after we used it up]].

Added DiffLines:

* CatastrophicCountdown: Inverted. The great disaster '''has''' happened already. The time reminder is instead on how much ago did it happen: 40 seconds, a minute, an hour, six hours, a day, three days, weeks, months, years...

* ApocalypseHow: Class 3b, though the show intentionally [[LeaveThePlotThreadsHanging goes out of its way to never explain]] how humans might disappear. To quote one of the opening lines of [[OnceAnEpisode every episode]], "This isn't about ''how'' we might vanish. This is about what happens to the world we leave behind." In general, though, it's assumed that our buildings and infrastructure are intact, and in the case of hydroelectric plants, left running for as long as it can.

* ElaborateUndergroundBase: The Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado, NORAD's quintessential underground facility is designed to withstand a nuclear war. This also means that it would also be one of the longest lasting human artifacts in America, a technological tomb sealed forever.
