Locust? Famine? Floods? You wish. Nope. The Aging Apocalypse is not the end of the world, just the end of your youth. And not just the gray hair, reading glasses, and overall crotchety demeanor you’ve been expecting. It’s far more nuanced. And, oh, it’s happening. The signs are there. I’ve been side eyeing them with a growing sense of helplessness that I’m powerless to stop my impending irrelevance.

The Greatest Generation bravely fought the horrors of World War II in order to bring about lasting peace across Europe and the rest of the world. The baby boomers grew up in the post-war period and shaped the world as we know it by pledging allegiance to the American dream.

But millennials, whose birth years span from roughly 1980 to 1996, aren’t content with doing things just because “that’s how they’ve always been done.” Here’s a guide to all the industries, products and institutions millennials are killing off.

The tech world told a lot of lies in 2018, and it was caught in those lies at what feels like an unprecedented rate. Some Silicon Valley players even began to wake up to the lies they told themselves over the years. With such a flurry of falsehoods, it’s worth taking a look back to see who went big in the year that public trust in tech really started to tank.

Is it music? Is it art? Is it subjective? Nah, somebody made up a list of album covers, and although it's not the most recent, the one I agree with the most, it's the longest one I could find.

Some have spectacular views and others are the view themselves. All of these pools are pretty interesting.

We’ve all heard of the American Civil War and the French Revolution. The Cold War and Cuba are old hat by now, and we’ve seen so much on Iraq and Afghanistan we know them inside out. These parts of history may indeed be pretty crazy, but they’re so well-known they just don’t have the same impact anymore. But do you know about the world’s craziest Central Asian dictators, who spend millions building marble palaces or boil their political opponents to death, depending on which country you look at? Do you even know which countries are in Central Asia? Many of you may not—and that’s what makes finding out about this stuff so interesting, horrific as some of it undoubtedly is.

A list compiled at BuzzFeed more than a year ago but still very pertinent if you ever have plans to hop the puddle for a visit to our Brit friends. It's a completely different language.

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.

Let the carping begin! Anytime someone tries to pinpoint regional idioms, there are many folks who were born and raised there and have never heard the term.

Have you have ever read the speech that William Safire wrote for President Nixon in case of a moon landing disaster? Or President John F. Kennedy's Dallas Trade Mart speech he would have given at a luncheon. He never made it.

For every speech, there are a bunch of versions that ended up on the writers' room floor. Here are 12 speeches that were written but, for a variety of reasons, never delivered.
