Also, I have a lot of linkspam to share with you all, but I can't wait on this one:
A Timeline of Extinction
(warning: links directly to a PDF)
It's by some futurist type who makes predictions about when certain things will either disappear or lose relevance: oil, the Internet, glaciers, etc. Probably most disconcerting is that libraries are going to disappear in 2017, which only gives me 9 more years to have it as a career. And I won't even be able to retire, because that's gone as of 2014. What will save me? Copyright. It goes extinct in 2020. So that means I can start writing fanfic for a living, as long as I find some way to tide myself over during that three year gap. Sounds like a plan.
