Japan Could Be Destroyed Within The Next 100 Years In Giant Volcanic Eruption, Scientists Claim

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2807549/Japan-destroyed-100-years-giant-volcanic-eruption-scientists-claim.html

Japan could be wiped off the face of the earth by a massive volcanic eruption some time in the next century killing almost all of its 127million inhabitants, according to a new study.

Experts analysing the eruption patterns of volcanoes on the island nation say it is 'not an overstatement' to predict that a natural disaster could leave the country 'extinct'.

Scientists at Kobe University looked at a massive volcanic crater on Kyushu Island, which has erupted seven times in the last 120,000 years.

They just have to hope Yellowstone doesn't blow first.

Bascially any of this stuff can kick off at any time.

A massive tsunami. Earthquake that splits the earth in half. Gigantic Volcanic eruption. Massive rock from space and smashing us to pieces. The Sun having some sort of power output increase and frying us. Us getting swallowed up by a black hole. Universe phase transition approaching us at the speed of light that will turn us into a gooey mess. Nearby supernova irradiating the earths atmosphere and frying us all with cosmic rays.

It's a sobering thought that the longer time goes on, the more ways we will discover that we could end up getting destroyed. There's probably a whole load of them out there that we don't even know about.

To be honest, that is the one thing going for the UK, f*ck all happens here.

You build it, it stands until it falls down.

But strictly speaking, the UK could be destroyed within the next 100 years in a giant volcanic eruption. If one occured, near the UK, it could destroy the UK.

Yeah, but the important question is... what effect will those things have on house prices? ;)

We have more tornadoes per unit area than any other nation. Perhaps one day we will have more typhoons or, if things get really bad, raptors.

The biggest threat to mankind is Artificial Intelligence.

By about 2040, computers will be more intelligent than humans, and be globally interconnected via the Internet.

Which is, frankly, scary.

But what I really worry about is this:

It implies that by about 2035, there will be globally interconnected computers, almost as intelligent as humans.

In other words... a bit thick.

Now that's scary.

Thats OK we can just unplug it. Unless its in the form of a solar powered armed drone.

In other words very thick. Feed it a diet of trashy TV and other banal distractions and it'll be perfectly happy no matter what else is going on. Being more intelligent than most humans is no great achievement.
