Since the first nuclear test on 15 July 1945, there have been over 2,051 other nuclear weapons tests around the world. The device tested in 1945 had a 20 kiloton yield, meaning it had the explosive force of 20,000 tons of TNT.
Within 20 years, the US and USSR tested nuclear weapons larger than 10 megatons, or 10 million tons of TNT. For scale, these weapons were at least 500 times as strong as the first atomic bomb.
It's 50% fatal to those who contract it and there is no cure. The last line of antibiotic drugs have no effect on this bug whatsoever. Do you know those bargain pre-need mortuaries? Buy now and save.

This sounds like the beginning of a SciFi movie, doesn't it? But it's true. Three years after the Japanese nuclear meltdown at the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi power plant, there is a population explosion of radioactive wild boars. This presents a serious problem beyond the radioactivity.

With Collapse: The End of Society simulator, you are patient zero in the plague that takes humanity down. Crank up 'Don't Fear The Reaper', answer a couple questions, and watch it all fall apart.
In about five billion years time, our sun will expand, engulfing our planet in fire - and killing anything that might live on the surface. But there's still a chance - however small - that humans might survive this cataclysm, fleeing our planet in spacecraft as our solar system dies. But what about the end that we CAN'T escape - the end of the universe itself? The one thing we know is that it's coming.

We're doomed according to scientists who tell us that our survival is based upon other living creatures that we depend upon. As these species perish, what will take their place in the ecosystem? We're our own executioners.

Noted cosmologist and physics professor Lawrence Krauss is of the opinion that our observations of dark matter have doomed the universe to a premature end. Heisenberg would no doubt agree.

If so, relax. The Mayans just ran out of math. We're safe as a species until 2036 when Apophis smacks us on its way back around the sun. It doesn't hurt to have a GOOD* bag prepped for all other manner of catastrophe, however, and something handy to toss into it is this E-Tag necklace, a serrated dog tag that has two punch-out arrowheads cut into it.

Don't forget that a 1,300 foot asteroid, about the size of an aircraft carrier, will fly by Earth this evening even closer to us than the Moon. Don't worry, it won't hit. It'll be tricky to catch a glimpse, but you might spot it if you have a telescope with at least a 6-inch mirror, says Scott Fisher, the director of the National Science Foundation's Division of Astronomical Sciences.
Harold Camping lets out a hearty chuckle when he considers the people who believe the world will end in 2012. "That date has not one stitch of biblical authority," Camping says from the Oakland office where he runs Family Radio, an evangelical station that reaches listeners around the world. "It's like a fairy tale."
The real date for the end of times, he says, is in 2011.
What causes bad weather and natural disasters? The spin of the earth. Wind, rain, snow, hail, floods, drought, hurricanes, tornados, and lightening are all caused by temperature (and pressure) differences in the earth's atmosphere. These are caused by the earth's spin.
The earth's spin is quickening.
Uh oh. This will not stand.
