    Default 12 Ways the World Might End

    There was a report from Oxford University last week listing out 12 ways the world might end and the probabilities of each....sort of. A few weren't actually given odds. I suppose you could also title this 12 Ways the World Might Not end and reverse the odds. (chuckle).

    http://globalchallenges.org/wp-conte...l-report-1.pdf

    That report is really long, 212 pages, but for those that might be interested in the technical research I thought I'd post it. For the rest of us, here's the Reader's Digest version.

    Are you baiting the zombie squad again ?

    You really must find a new hobby for these long stretches of cold weather.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    And preparing for a zombie apocalypse is a bad thing?

    I did notice that "the list" had a bit of trouble deciding what was great inconvenience, what was great change, and what was "the end of the world".

    However, it is one of the greatest pieces of troll bait I have ever seen linked to a forum!

    It's 12.....12...not 13.. 12 Ways the World Could End. That's all the fingers on both hands and two toes.

    Actually, Rick, those are causes of the Apocalypse. The Apocalypse is different than the world ending. A big asteroid can cause a world ending event. The rest of those won't.

    There is only one way to prepare for a world ending event.....leave Earth.

    Ya forgot #13! Rick runs out of twinkies AND bacon
    If by what I have learned over the years, allow me to help one person to start to prepare. If all the mistakes I have made, let me give one person the wisdom that allows them to save their life or the life of a loved one in an emergency. Then I will truly know that all the work I have done will have been worth every minute.

    You could always buy her flowers and try apologizing.

    No need, they titled the report "12 risks that threaten human civilisation". So, their report matches the title. I won't say who titled this post "12 Ways the World Might End."
