It's never easy to predict the future with any accuracy, but there are a few things we know for sure. The fate of the Earth, the fate of humans, and the fate of the stars all have inevitable moments in the near and distant future. What will happen in a thousand years? What can we expect in a million years? A quadrillion years? This amazing and eye-opening infographic from the BBC covers everything from the decay of plutonium to the destruction of the Earth. Suffice to say, it's not looking good. Fortunately, we have some time.

i don't know what will happen, but whatever is in the Bible, I'm sure will prove true.

We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one. The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and... bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.



Yes, I have consumed too much Doctor Who today!

I may be good and dead for all of these events, but they're fascinating to predict! Personal favorite (just for laughs) is that men will be extinct in a few thousand years. Well, at least the Y chromosome :)

Oh... what are the odds? I posted that same infographic over that the Indie Writers Blog recently... I'd like to think brilliant minds tend to thing alike.

I love that poster. I really wish I had one hanging from my wall. Then I can check off each event as it happens.

That's assuming, of course, that I'm immortal. And I may not be, but I've not died yet, so there's a chance.

I don't plan on being here for the majority of these events, but I'm still super depressed now!

In seven million years Mount Rushmore is gone? Nooooo!

Oddly both depressing and fascinating.
