OMG

Just saw this headline on How-To Geek:

"Scientists studying starlight can tell you: Our universe is going dark"

Doctor? Doctor Who? I saw this on your show. Where are you? Help?

Did they say when though? If it happens in a few million years, I am not too bothered about it to be honest...

Then again, the bees are disappearing already!

Billions of years. I just thought it was funny, because of, was it "The Pandorica Opens", where they addressed the universe going dark.

As related to the bees, there was a post somewhere with a gif from Nat Geo I think showing where the Arctic ice is as opposed to where it was or should be. I think we have screwed ourselves royally, and those who are living in denial are just living in denial. We really are the stupidest species to ever inhabit the planet.

We have screwed ourselves indeed. It can't be a coincidence that the weather changed so much in the past few centuries. With the heat wave of the past weeks, our big river Elbe is almost gone. I took pictures today and will post them soon.

Poor polar bears, they say the ice floats are thawing under their paws :(

There's this joke where Earth meets another planet and the planet asks why it looks so ill and Earth says "I have homo sapiens" and the other planet says "I had that too once but got over it"

Had not heard that one before. LOL

It's not the past few centuries that are concerning, it's the past few years, especially the past couple. Things are changing at an alarming rate. We have had very mild winters until this past year, and the heat from the ocean, and I don't understand the mechanism well, caused us to have record snows. It was beautiful, but definitely not normal. It used to rain for days at a time, and now we get the occasional not much more than a shower. I've been lucky where I live, my part of the US has not been cursed with the heat and severe drought that a lot of the country has had.

It is getting pretty scary to read the weather news. Again, we are the stupidest species on the planet, and even now are doing everything we can to destroy the only place we have to live. We're a long way from space travel and terra-forming and whatever else we need to find a new home. When we do get there, if we ever do, I can imagine us doing just what we did anyplace white Europeans have come across. Decimated the local population and claimed everything for our own, then proceeded to destroy it all. Yeah, I'm not a big fan. Or hopeful. LOL
