Being assimilated by the Bored and having to spend the rest of eternity a cybernetic being with no motivation and nothing interesting to do.

Isn't that already a reality here in the US?

Not quite. We can still die. If we get assimilated, we will never die!

Not sure living forever would be an option I would want.

Well, I guess it could be worse, it could turn out that all the major religions are wrong and we are stuck reliving our death for eternity. (trust me, this is the mild stuff)

Could be much worse... They could force us to watch Manos: The Hands Of Fate.

Well, we could end up like Loki straped to the rock with poison dripping on him. At least until he was freed.

At least Loki was freed. We could have ended up like Prometheus, having his innards ripped out and growing back for eternity.

True..true..
Forgot the name, but the guy that has to roll the rock up the hill for eternity...gets it almost to the top before it rolls back down. Or, like those folks in the pool of water, suffering from eternal thirst.

Waking up to discover I was injured somehow, and I'm now trapped, fully conscious, in an apparently comatose body. I can hear everything, but I have no voluntary muscle function at all. I can't even focus my eyes, much less move them. They can tell from an EEG that I'm not brain-dead, but that's all.

Trapped in a non-responsive body, unable to communicate, for as long as they can keep me alive. That is my worst-case nightmare.
