It’s the End of the World as We Know It

So I’m watching 20/20, and it’s a very special edition entitled "Last Days on Earth."  Oh, how light and uplifting this is.

Some of the theories have been quite amusing, incredibly unlikely, and a bit scary to even consider :  gamma-ray bursts, pandemics, nuclear weapons, black holes, super intelligent computers, asteroids, and more.

The one that especially got to me was when the scientist described what would happen if a black hole ever came close to Earth.  Supposedly the difference in the gravitational pulls could literally stretch a person to death and rip them apart.  Horrible, right?  That’s what I thought, but this crazy scientist guy said that it would be a cool way to die.  Umm…I’m thinking no.

Anyway, being sucked away by a black hole is rather unlikely.  Apparently it is the Global Warming that is going to get us… 

Why do I watch this stuff?  It is so much easier to just believe.
