Or anthrax or whatever it is you wish tomassproduce at home to wipe out humanity. Are humans going to go extinct sooné Will human extinction be anthropogenicé That is the result of human action. Or will it be one of the good oldfashioned kinds of extinction Earth's history knows pretty wellé The Global Catastrophic Risks Survey,issued by Oxford University's
Future of Humanity Institute placed our risk of extinction before the year 2100 at 19%. Now, you might be thinking quot;whatever, blahblah blah armageddonquot;. quot;It'll be okay, humans are too smart to go extinct.quot; Maybe you're right. But it's difficult to predict the distant future with a lot of certainty. What's really cool though is that if you embrace that uncertainty,a simple argument
can show that human extinction soon is actually more probable. It's called the Doomsday argument. Imagine a giant urn that contains either 10 balls numbered 1 to 10, or a million balls numbered 1 to a million. Now, you don't know which is the case, but you are allowed to pull out one ball. You go ahead and do that
and it is ball number 4. That's pretty strong evidence in favourof the 10 ball condition because drawing a four from a set of 1 through 10 is a one in 10 chance. But drawing fourfrom a million different numbers is a one in a million chance. By analogy you are also a numbered ball. You are a human who knows approximately what your birth number is.
It's probably somewhere around 100 billion. That's how many other humans were most likely born before you were. Importantly, you didn't get to decide which birth number you would have. So, just like the number for a ball, you are a random sample from the set of all humans who will ever live. The Doomsday argument points out that from 200 billion people there's a50 percent chance that a randomly chosen
20 Things to do Before the END OF THE WORLD
Hello, all right, so there'sbeen a lot of talk about how it's supposed tobe the end of the world on December 21st, 2012. And that's due to the Mayan calendar and how it's running out, et cetera. Personally, I don't buy it, because people have been predicting the end of the world for, I don't know, thelast thousand years.
And I don't know howmany of you remember Y2K, but nothing happened there. But even though I don't believe that the world's going toend in only a few months, it's still got methinking, what would I do if I knew that the world was going to endé So I decided to come upwith a list of things that I would wanna get donebefore the world ended.
And some people call it a bucket list, you know, before they die, and this one's gonna be similar, except it'sbeforetheendoftheworld list. 20 things to do beforethe end of the world. Go streaking. What better way tocelebrate the apocalypse than to streak down thestreets of your local towné
And I think the best part about streaking during the apocalypse is, what's the police gonna do about ité Like, they're worried aboutlooters and murderers. I don't really think they're worried about me in my birthday suit doing the windmill. There's a little visual for you. Tell everybody exactlywhat I think about them.
And I mean exactly. Doesn't matter who it is. With the freedom of knowing that there will be noconsequences for my actions because the world's going to end, I'm free to just let loose. You (bleep)ing dickface piece of (bleep)! Oh, well, sorry, Grandma.
I know that was a little harsh. But you didn't send me abirthday card this year! Pray to God. Now, I'm not religious by any means, but I figure a good prayerright before Judgment Day might go a long way to helpget me into the Pearly Gates. Can't hurt! Burn my underwear in protest
