Subject: RE: BS: The end of the world is nigh.
My post was not written for your benefit, Marty. It's too long for your attention span, I used words of more than two syllables, and the concepts are far beyond your ability to grasp. A comparison between our two posts will, I think, give people a pretty good idea of how far each of us has advanced on the scale of evolution.

Sorry, Bill D. I first heard that joke in an astronomy class I took while at the U. of W. It was told by the professor.

And GUEST, the bad news is that we could be wiped out in a whole variety of wild and hairy ways. The good news is two-fold:   
1. Some of the ways we could be wiped out, we have control over if we choose to exert that control; and
2. We're still here.
