    If you already know what's killing you, what is the suspense all about?

    You said the suspense is killing you. :biggrin:

    ...so you are doomed as long as nothing bad happens.

    We're all doomed, cause we're going to die anyway. So, in the long run, all that doesn't matter much, really :tongue:

    if there's the possibility of being saved, why are we doomed?

    Fear not. I know with 100% certainty what you, Wolram, will die of.



    Lack of oxygen to the brain.

    (Now, whether that lack of oxygen to your brain comes from overheating due to climate change, or vaporization of your body due to meteor impact - that's just details.)

    His brain could be crushed completely, resulting in death prior to potential lack of oxygen.

    wolram, yes, we all die eventually. Did this just dawn on you now?

    And if not an asteroid, then one day the Sun will expand into a red giant and envelope the earth. Granted, it will take many millions of years...

    Our solar system will inevitably be destroyed in 5 billion years. Though, if humanity survives this long, I'm sure it will find a solution.
