Have a nice day

Capyblanca is sorry to report that physicists failed to end the world as promised. Luckily, the economists went ahead anyway and brought us the apocalypse as promised.

Some of the most amazing 9 minutes of video ever! Except, of course, for those that include Scarlett Johansson.

I wish Carl Sagan was alive to see this. As one commenter said, despite it all, the future's looking better. Or at least it does from high up there.
