Just when you thought you’d accepted your own mortality . . . Everything Is Going to Kill Everybody is bringing panic back. Twenty illustrated, hilariously fear-inducing essays reveal the chilling and very real experiments, dangerous emerging technologies, and terrifying natural disasters that soon could—or very nearly already did—bring about the end of humanity. In short, everything in here will kill you and everyone you love. At any moment. And nobody’s told you about it—until now: • Experiments in green energy like the HiPER, which uses massive lasers to create a tiny “contained” sun; it’s an idea that could save the world if it doesn’t consume us all in a fiery fusion reaction first. • Global disasters like the hypercane—a hurricane so large it could cover all of North America and shoot trailer parks into space!• Terrifying new developments in robotics like the EATR, which powers itself on meat—an invention in the running for “Worst Decision Made by Anybody.” less
Cracked.com editor Robert Brockway's gut-bustingly funny, scientifically accurate examination of 20 ways the world is facing impending apocalypse or, ya know, was nearly destroyed thanks to our incompetence. Good stuff!
He's not kidding...Everything is going to Kill Everybody is a thoroughly entertaining look at various ways the Universe could snuff humanity for "sh*ts and giggles", from a "Hypercane" to a "Verneshot" to...and I kid you not...robots that we in our shortsightedness have created to run on...MEAT.
Extra irony credit for labelling it with the Acronym EATR...
Within the first 20 pages into this book, I was laughing harder than I think I ever have. This book is absolutely terrifying by the way it describes certain events that could lead to the end of the world, but the humor used in it almost brightens up your view of the impending apocalypse this amazing book describes.
