BBC Asteroid Impact Simulation End Of The World Predictions
A huge asteroid with a diameter of 500 Kilometer is going to impact on Earth! Destination: Pacific Ocean. The asteroid impact peels 10 kilometers crust off the surface of Earth. The resulting shockwave travels at hypersonic speed. The debris from the impact is blasted to the lower orbit of Earth, and they returns to destroy everything on the planet. The firestorm created by the asteroid impact encircles the Earth,
vaporizing everything in our world. Within 24 hours of asteroid impact, the entire Earth will be uninhabitable. The researchers have found that this scenario has happened 6 times in Earth's history.
So when is the next end of the world date gonna be now CC English
Doomsday mongers first got everyone scaredand riled up for December 31, 1999, saying the world was gonna end in the year 2000.When that didn't happen, the next date they pushed was December 21, 2012. Now that thisdate also proved to be a fiasco, what new date will they come up with nexté I am guessing that still some of the 2012pushers are going to say that the change or cataclysm can still take place until December23, but we only have until tomorrow to disprove that. After that, some next dates we willprobable be hearing about is May 19, 2013, which some believe will be the day of the SecondComing of Christ; after that, we take a small
leap until the year 2020 or 2028, also associatedto a return of Christ. Then we get 2060 from some theories of Isaac Newton, who supposedlypredicted the world would end that year, followed by 2129, 2240 and 2280 originating from Muslimand Jewish predictions. If we survive all this as the human race, we wouldn't have toworry about the world ending until around 500 million years in the future, when carbondioxide is supposed to run out in the atmosphere, and if humans somehow manage to overcome thatas well, the next worrisome date would be in 5 thousand million years, which is approximatelythe time when our Sun should die, taking planet Earth along with it.
So, as we can see, since the world didn't endyesterday, it seems we won't have to worry about something like this is many, many yearsto come, unless someone else decides to come up with new failed predictions based on erroneousinterpretations of ancient information, which probably may be the case as some people seemto always be finding reasons to scare everyone around them. Personally, i never believedin December 21, 2012, as a real date for anything sensationally transforming. I was surpriseda little bit, though, that no one took advantage of the popularity of this day to make someartificial event happen, which was the only thing i didn't fully discard, but i was relievedat the same time, as it would have been a
very stupid move to make, in my opinion. The world was never going to end yesterday,and i don't think is gonna end any time soon. i do think, though, that some big changesmay take place in the planet in the upcoming years, having a personal hunch for 2020, butthat's all i believe is going to happen: changes, in society, in our concept of reality, etc,but i don't really feel any wandering planet or fleet of space aliens are coming to destroyus at all, but as always, that's just my opinion. What do you thinké Do you believe the worldis gonna end or that humans are going to become extinguished at some pointé If you believebig changes are coming, what do you think
those areé Please leave me your comments inthe section below, i'll really appreciate it.
What Happens If A Presidential Election Ends In A Tie
The 2016 Democratic Iowa Caucus saw the closestresult in Iowa history. Less than threetenths of a percent separated Bernie Sanders andHillary Clinton. Additionally, Clinton won in six tied precincts by way of a coin toss.Such a close start to the race made us want to know what would happen if this trend madeit all the way to election day. What would happen if two presidential candidates tiedé Well, while this may seem unlikely, it isactually easier than many people think. The reason is that the US population does notactually elect their president, but rather, state representatives do via the electoralcollege. Basically, each state has a given
number of â€œelectorsâ€�, which vary basedon the population of that state. In total there are 538 electors. Some very populatedstates like California wield 55 electoral votes, while sparser states like Alaska onlyhave 3. Moreover, if a candidate gets even slightly more votes in a state, they get ALLof that state's electoral votes. This basic process is written into Article Two of theUS Constitution. So, has this ever led to a tieé Yup, in 1800.At the time there were fewer states, fewer people, and an odd rule where the winner ofthe election became president, and the second runner up became vice president. That'dbe a little awkward today. When the results
came out, both Thomas Jefferson and AaronBurr had received 73 electoral votes each. To break the tie, the House of Representativesvoted amongst themselves, and eventually crowned Jefferson the third President. This unprecedentedsituation led to the twelfth amendment, which changed both the way presidents and vice presidentsare picked, as well as the procedure in case of a tie. The biggest difference the 12th amendmentbrought was that when the House would vote on a tie for President, instead of stateshaving a proportional number of votes, each state would only get one vote. So now, California'snearly 'millionperson population equaled
Wyoming's 580,000 in representation. But even if there isn't a tie, a close racecan still be difficult. In the 2000 election between George W. Bush and Al Gore, both candidateswere short just a few electoral votes necessary to win. The final state which would decidethe race was Florida, with 25 electoral votes. Florida's tally showed a difference of lessthan 1000 individual votes, pushing Gore to demand a recount of several important counties.However, the Supreme Court overruled the recount as unconstitutional, and reverted the electionto Bush. It also brought about one of the strongestarguments against the electoral college. Despite
winning the largest number of electoral votesby a margin of just 537 individual votes in Florida, Bush actually got half a millionfewer votes in the overall election than Gore. To this day this election is one of the mostcontentious in US history. In the end, an actual tie, or even gettingclose to a tie, would lead to some fairly nondemocratic solutions. Although, perhapsthat's not entirely surprising. The United States is, by definition, not a true democracy,but in fact, a constitutional republic. Wait, whaté America isn't a democracyé Whatdoes that meané What exactly is a constitutional republicé Well, you can find out by watchingthis tutorial all about American Democracy. Thanks
