The End of the World

It's scheduled to arrive at 9:15 AM on June 1, 2014, the day my brother turns 39. According to scientists at NASA's Chandra X-Ray observatory, there is a "Chaos Cloud" headed our way at the speed of light. A few of the encouraging quotes:
"...the total annihilation of our solar system is imminent."

"Just imagine our galaxy the Milky Way as a beautiful, handwritten letter. Now imagine pouring a glass of water on the paper and watching the words dissolve as the stain spreads."

"It's like watching a helpless hog being dissolved in a vat of acid."

"If it continues unchecked, the chaos cloud will eventually reduce our galaxy to the state of absolute chaos that existed before the birth of the universe."
Ah, yes, another side-effect of global warming and not signing the Kyoto treaty. Well, with that I bid you all a happy and joy filled week.
