10 APOCALYPTIC EVENTS That Could End the World TOMORROW
Studies have shown that the only thing that can really save you duringan apocalypse is a beard. It's science. So, people have beenpredicting the end of the world for hundreds of years. There's just somethingabout the end of all things that fascinates people. Now, of course most of these predictions
have either been unfoundedor just flat out wrong. I mean, remember Y2K andthe Mayan Apocalypseé But despite those predictions, there are theories that exist, created by the scientific community that describe the most likely scenarios that could end all life on Earth. So this week, I gatheredthe most interesting
and somewhat disturbingones to share with you all. So, here they are, 10 Apocalyptic Events ThatCould End the World Tomorrow. Number is The Big Crunch. The Big Crunch theory saysthe expansion of the universe first created by the originalBig Bang will eventually halt, at which point it will begin to contract from the force of its own gravity,
sucking everything that existsback into a singularity. That means that everygalaxy, star, and planet would cease to exist, whichof course includes Earth, and by extension, us. Now, this shouldn't worryyou for two reasons. First, from what we currently know, the universe is not only still expanding, but it's expanding atan accelerating rate.
So, you safe for now baby. Secondly, if this did happen, there would be no warning, anyways. You would just suddenly be shrunk to a very, very smallsize and then poof, gone. Number two is the HeatDeath of the Universe. This theory's basically the exact opposite of The Big Crunch,
which says gravity willnever halt the expansion of the universe, and that it will continueto widen and widen forever. So, basically, you're safe then, righté Well, not exactly. The laws of thermodynamics say that if the universe continuesto infinitely expand, that all matter in theuniverse will eventually
Read5BeforeIBuyEnd of 2014 Book Haul
Hello everyone! Today I'm here to talk aboutmy Read 5 Before I Buy challenge and to show you some books that I acquired recently. Firstif you are new to my channel or you've missed a few months worth of tutorials I was participatingin a reading challenge called Read 5 Before I Buy, where I read 5 books that I alreadyowned whether it was physical or ebooks, and then I was allowed to buy one book after Ifinished each list. I finished one list and then was allowed to buy Station Eleven byEmily St. John Mandel. And then I read a bunch of books from the library and didn't completea list. And I finally got to book number four on my second list when I completely brokedown. Especially after I had made the decision
that once I finished that list I was goingto allow myself to buy multiple books to add some color and diversity and gorgeousnessto my collection. So on New Year's Eve, I thought no better way to celebrate the upcomingyear than to buy a few books. I allowed myself to buy six books. I only ended up pickingup four physical books and then one ebook later on. I have those to show you. I alsoacquired a few books as prizes or Christmas presents. But I also first wanted to add somestipulations to my own project. It's mostly for me, but I thought that you might liketo know. In the future when I break my Read 5 Before I Buy I will make myself completethat current list and then go on to read ten
more books before I can purchase more books.If I finish a list and want to buy more than one book, that is totally allowed, but againI'll have to read ten books instead of five before the next time I go out book shopping.Does that make senseé I hope that makes sense. It's mostly just for me and I think it'sa good way to keep myself in check without feeling too guilty whenever I break down andbuy books. And I have consequences at the same time. So I know what you are all herefor. You see the magical words book haul so let's get on to it. The first book thatI have is on my Kindle and it was sent to me for review by the author herself. And itis You Are Not Alone: Stories from the Front
Lines of Womanhood an Autobiography in TenVoices. This is an femine piece of nonfiction compiled by Leah Carey who I was put in contactwith by Emily Jean who mentioned this book and did a wonderful review of it. I haven'tread it yet, but I know it will be great piece of feminist literature that I can pursue wheneverI have an hour or two to spare. The next book I acquired was a book that I won during theDewey's 24 hour readathon back in October, I believe. And I actually forgot that I hadwon. And I chose The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters. There is a meteor or asteroidcoming toward Earth and everyone knows that impending doom is coming. Everyone is goingto die. No one will survive this meteor hitting.
But a policeman is passionate about solvinghis last case. And I just thought that sounded like an interesting book. The next book Ireceived for Christmas from my wonderful husband. It is beautiful and I love it. It is Sagathe Deluxe Edition Book 1, which is a bind up of Saga volumes 1,2, and 3, with some bonuscontent. LOVED this and I reread all of the volumes in this edition. It is gorgeous. Ifyou are a fan I highly recommend it. I just love the kind of middle finger that FionaStaples and Brian K. Vaughan give to the publishing world. Because there was lots of controversyabout the very first cover because she was breastfeeding, but it was a tall full lengthportrait of it. There was not a closeup.
So on the deluxe edition they're just likeâ€œmmmph mmph nope boobie right thereâ€�. And I love it and I don't even care. Andthe art is beautiful on it. It's wonderful. I love it, love love love love love it. Inaddition to that wonderful gift my husband also got me the only other bookish gift Ireceived and it is this glorious Read More Books shirt from the Book Riot store. Loveit. It's the most flattering tshirt that I've had in a very long time. The materialis soft. And it's a shirt about books so it's pretty rad. Next onto the books I acquiredon my little New Year's Eve book shopping spree. Like I said, I intended on giving myselfthe limit of six books, but I didn't get
