    Well maybe not me personally, but with the likely increase in post-apocalypse teacher absence there'll always be a need for Supply staff won't there? ;-)

    Yes, I would suggest that the end of all things would count as a critical time hartd to deal with.

    Well, we never used to see rolling videos of the disasters did we. It helps mobilise charitable donations and show us the horror. I feel we should know but it also feels like we're gawping at a car crash!
  12. The world will definitely end, it is not will it happen, but when. I think it has about one billion years of habitable time left for life, before it gets too hot from the expansion of the dying sun.

    2036 could see an interesting close encounter with an asteroid.

    Yellowstone is long over-due for a major eruption, if the caldera blows big time it will directly destroy much of the USA and send the world into apocalypse. Could be any thousand year's time, but the ground there is rising every year right now, so it is getting ready. Finger.s crossed not in our lifetimes, but it will happen sometime.

    The natural events are infrequent, but human kind's population explosion, IMO, will bring about some major problems, and only a matter of decades into the future.

    I've got over 20 years to go until I get my pension [whatever is left of it]. Do you think the world will wait until I 've had chance to 'blow' it all before it blows up? My son is full of the various theories about 'the end of the world' just like I was at his age but I'm still here many years later enjoy all life's fun!!

    No, I don't think it will wait 20 years, sorry. Might as well blow your salary whilst you are still earning it...

    Yes but not that far away, near Naples, is another volcano just waiting. Pozzuoli (Spelling??) is rising visibly every year.

  18. Oh well if the world's gonna end I won't bother taking my library books back then.
  19. You should return your library books: the end of the world is not nigh, but the due back date is!
  20. I say, " Eat, drink and be merry" For tomorrow, we die.
    What else do you need to know?
