Quote:
When the Sun is about 5.6 billion years old (about 1.1 billion years from now), it will be about 10 percent brighter than it is now. This extra solar energy will result in a moist greenhouse effect, until Earth's atmosphere slowly dries out as water vapor is lost into space. This condition will probably signal the end of large surface life on Earth (like us!), but some marine life and simple land life forms may survive.


In the meantime, Seahawk fans, try not to worry about the small stuff.

The only fan base that should be scared is the Chicago Cub fans. A billion years may not be long enough; everyone else has a pretty good chance at winning at least one.

Look at what we've done in the last 100 years. In a million years, we'll have populated half the universe, assuming we haven't killed ourselves off by then.

Hope my descendents have figured out a new planet to live on by then. And that the whole re-incarnation thing is bogus.

Why doesn't your mom count? Is she a post-op transsexual?

Meh. We could gain the ability to spread as far into the universe as we want, and it still wouldn't stop Scottemojo from stalking me.

So the giant turtles will survive and Papaki will be happy. If he lives.

This reminds me of a comic strip we used to pass around when I was a teacher. A kid walks up to the teacher's desk and says, "Teacher... is it true that the sun will burn out in a million years?" The teacher says, "No Timmy... it's going to be a BILLION years." The kid wipes off his brow and says, "pheeeewwww!" like he's super relieved. I laughed every time that thing made the rounds.

I would imagine the Seattle Mariners would be on that list also.

:roll:

Actually I'm glad to have this information, I had been so worried......
