Oh no! The end is, er, not so near
I love what passes for news sometimes. In the very far future this could maybe, possibly happen. Oh no!
I want the five minutes back I spent reading that. :)
So they spent months and months, probably, to come up with that random, hypothetical crap. I could have made up a story at least as plausible and certainly more interesting than that in the time I stopped to read it.
Sorry about that. I should have posted a little warning in that post. So, for future readers of the article...
WARNING: This story may reduce your IQ. Do not attempt to operate complex machinary immediately after reading.
Seriously though, I'm trying to figure out why the article was written in the first place. Apparently there is no evidence what-so-ever, it's just a couple of folks at Stanford who decided that this is what might happen.
Tomorrow's top story; Humanity may evolve to the point where they are made completely of gravy within 5 million years. Stay tuned!
Let's not forget that everybody's favorite love-child, Chelsea Clinton, goes to Stanford.
Here's a great bit of idiocy:
Linde concedes that the work is raw and that astronomy is an inexact science at best, and known for continuous revisions. Recalling an ongoing joke among cosmologists, the Stanford University professor quipped:
"Astrophysicists are always in error but never in doubt."
Astronomy is inexact and in need of revision? Or astrophysics? You know one is a laboratory science where people record observed data made of actual things, the other is a bunch of math tricks made on chalkboards. Modern physicists really piss me off sometimes. Grrr....
What do they know anyway? They are just the folks who do make-overs at department store make-up counters.

Really, Mr. Guest, I'm not the narrow minded schmuck you seem to think I am. I'm actually a fairly easy-going schmuck. :D
