If you have seen Avengers Infinity War you know Thanos won. When Thanos finally gathered together all of the infinity stones he erased half of existence with a simple snap of his fingers.
Now there is a website that tells fans if they lived or died.
Simply called www.didthanoskill.me, all the user has to do is visit the site. They’ll either see the message “You were spared by Thanos” or “You were slain by Thanos, for the good of the Universe.” Whether one survives or not seems to be dependent on cookies, though it’s unclear what the algorithm is. Unfortunately for those who were killed, refreshing the page does not change your fate. You’re stuck with whatever the site gives you.
This is an entertaining example of how Infinity War has captured the attention of the zeitgeist in a short period of time. Opening in theaters less than a week ago, the film has completely rewritten the box office record books and is close to passing the $1 billion mark well before it opens in the lucrative film market of China. Given how immensely popular Infinity War is, it’s easy to see this site catching on with viewers. Groups of friends should have a great time seeing if they’d end up “perfectly balanced” like the Avengers or if they fare better. Everybody has a 50-50 shot, so chances are someone you know won’t “survive.”
The good news, as touched on above, is that most (if not all) of these deaths should be reversed by the time Avengers 4 ends. So, if you’re one of the half slain by Thanos, just remember that there’s still another chapter to this story. Perhaps after Avengers 4 comes out, the makers of didthanoskill.me will update their project to let people know if they really died or not.
