Hurry, say your goodbyes, bend over as kiss your goodbye!
I call b.s. on this. How the hell can anyone predict this? Stupid if you ask me. It'd be like someone predicting minimum pay will rise up to $25 per hour within the next two years. Total b.s. Never gonna happen.
BTW, what does it matter that if it does happen or not? We won't be around that long to see it.
dammit 5 billion years to figure out what Im gonna do? thats not enough time...
exactly... if it ain't gonna happen in the next 50 years, I don't give a rip. I'll be tits up and 6 feet under, and I ain't having no kids either... so **** it.
RIGHT!! how do these ****s know this stuff?they still can't get the weather right.
I kissed mine goodbye, but it STILL followed me home.
Well, if you want to know, this will happen, but a long long time from now.
The sun fuses hydrogen to hydrogen to create helium (basically). Eventually the hydrogen will be used up, and the sun will begin to fuse helium to helium to create carbon I believe (its not a one to one reaction IIRC). This is the phase of the red giant that they talked about in the article.
This swelling and fusing will continue with different elements until it reaches iron (it takes more energy to fuse iron than you get out of the reaction) and the sun will collapse. It will puff out its outer layer, creating a ring nebula, and a super dense dim star will remain, a white dwarf. Of course, this will take a very long time.
I'll stop here.
Im pretty sure all of this is correct, as I have not studied astronomy in a few years.
This is much worse than global warming!
I reread my contract and my deposit for cryongenic burial is non refundable. So much for coming back to life in 500millionkabillionzillion years.
That is exactly why I say screw it and live for today with no reprocussions of tomorrow! If we are all gonna die in 5 billions years anyways, we need to live life for what it's worth, damn the consequences.
Besides, I already got a sun burning out armegeddon rider on my homeowner's policy. Bring it on! I can rebuild.
Since when did you move from Texas to Utah?
Dale Gribble, Johnny Chimpo, who's next? Some guy named Emmett Brown???????????????
I am actually the clone of Dale Gribble aka Rusty Shackleford. Dale Gribble is still in Arlington in his basement where he tracks my movements and continues his search for extra terrestrial life.
We will be out of oil in 60 years and out of water in a hundred years, so it brings up the" If the sun blows up and there is no one to see it, does it make a sound" questions.
I think if anything there will be an excess of water, not a lack of it. Remember those big blue things between continents, that if you drive into far enough will cause your k5 hydolock? We are going to be FLOODED after the polar ice caps melt buddy. Get your disastrous life ending end of the world as we know it acts of nature straight.
I already started Noah's Ark 2 for the flooding; I even started collecting 2 of everything. Problem is, my collection numbers keep going down because all of these damn animals taste so good.
"Never again shall the world be covered by water"
not enough water to cover all the continents. Seriously, any idea how much water it would take to submerge a place like Nepal or Tibet? Melt every single glacier, ice cap and ice cube... you still wouldn't even begin to come close. Cities right at sea level might get pwned... but bah, its all good.
hell i am still too worryed about the whole dihitrogenmonoxogin scare to worry about the moon
Man... That sucks. I was gonna build a shed this weekend, too. Now, what's the point? It's just gonna vaporize in 5 billion years anyway.
Its ok. I am stocking up on flux capacitors. In 4.9 999billion years I will use them in my hoverboard to go back to 1972. Then I can buy a brand new '72 K5 to cruise around in in my cryo suit.
