If You're Feeling a Bit Down, This May Cheer You Up

via Impactlab

The reason why watching the Earth turned into a seething mass of flame may cheer you up is by comparing the way things are with how bad things could be. Things could always be worse.

This Japanese video has been on the web for years, but with a Japanese language narration. The National Film Board of Canada has kindly provided English language narration with expert commentary.

You might also think about how your local chapter of the Society for Creative Apocalyptology might plan ahead in order to survive such a disaster. For this exercise, you are not allowed to flee to an extraterrestrial refuge.

Am I the only person that thinks it is imperative for the survival of all species on out planet that we get at least a lunar colony going? At least the Russian are planning a mission to Mars. Although they are not planning on bringing any women, and I'm not sure if they plan on getting back ever, so I'm not really sure what the point is other than flag planting. Anybody know more about this than me?

gtg: Off-planet colonies are extremely important for the future of the race, as you say.

The Russians are a rotting remnant of their formerly impressive Potemkin Village selves. They have a lot of oil and gas, but they are too incompetent to develop their resources efficiently. They are ruled by stupid thugs, as it seems they always have done.

I thought things were improving in Russia? By the way I am rooting for the people not the government.
