11 Ways The World Could End

Since the 1500s, there have been more than150 documented predictions of when the world is going to end. Luckily for us, none of themhave come true…yet. However, you'll be surprised that not allof them are destructive. Here are some terrifyingly amazing ways theworld, genuinely could end. When you think of scientists working on superviruses, you probably picture Hazmat workers, deep in a mountain bunker, studying vats fullof insidious green liquid. But these labs do actually exist! Maybe notworking for some shady Bondstyle villain looking to ransom the world away to the highestbidder, but for pharmaceutical companies and

government agencies studying ways to curedangerous pathogens. But what happens when a vial full of an extremely dangerous virusbreaks out of containment, or is misplacedé Over the years, there have been numerous documentedcases of dangerous viruses escaping from laboratories around the world. One of these happened asrecently as 2009. A group of scientists based in Europe, workingwith Baxter Pharmaceuticals, were conducting lab tests on a seasonal flu strain.Without realizing it, Baxter had sent them live supplies of the H5N1 virus, better knownas “bird flu,â€� which has a mortality rate higher than 60%. One of the world's deadliestviruses was handled and distributed to three

other labs without any pathogen safety protocolsin place. The grave error was only realized when onelab worker in the Czech Republic inoculated a group of ferrets with samples of the “seasonflu� batch, and was horrified when they all died.The scientists were immediately placed under quarantine and monitored for signs of thedeadly virus. Luckily, none of them were infected and all the scientists were freed with a cleanbill of health. Two years later, these same strains of avianand human flu were combined in a laboratory, successfully creating “the most dangerousvirus in history.� The virus was highly

pathogenic, while retaining its dangerouslyhigh fatality rate. If it got loose, it could kill 60% of the world's population in afreakishly short amount of time – a truly apocalyptic notion.Some say it's only a matter of time before this kind of virus escapes containment andwreaks havoc on mankind. After going through two world wars, you wouldthink that the world would have learned to get along by now. But unfortunately for thesurvival of humanity, we are constantly under threat of triggering the final war – NuclearArmageddon. Mutually Assured Destruction, like its acronymsuggests, is one of the maddest doctrines

ever devised. It ensures that if a countrywere to ever use a nuclear weapon on another state with the same capability, both sideswould unleash their entire nuclear arsenal, bringing about the complete annihilation ofboth countries. With the resulting nuclear winter, and the likely participation of othercountries in the exchange, this would almost certainly lead to destruction and death onan apocalyptic scale. There are over 15,000 nuclear warheads inthe world, with more than 4000 ready to fire at any one time. That would make one hellof a firework show, but probably not one you'd want to be around to watch.There have been a few “close calls� since

we first developed nuclear weapons. A surprisingnumber of these were technical glitches that nearly started World War 3, on both sidesof the Cold War. The average yield of a modern nuclear weaponis around 500 kilotons of TNT, that's 25 times more powerful than the bomb droppedon Nagasaki. Each one of these 500 kiloton bombs are powerful enough to flatten hugeparts of a large modern city such as New York, or London.And there exists some truly unimaginably powerful weapons, like the Tsar Bomba, which had ayield of more than 50 megatonnes. That's two and a half THOUSAND times more powerfulthan the one dropped on Nagasaki. Thankfully


The challenge begins with how to pronouncehis name. The first bit should sound like ‘Knee', the second like ‘cha' Knee – cha. Then we need to get past some of his extraordinaryand provocative statements: ‘What doesn't kill me makesme stronger' ‘God is dead! And we have killed him.' And his large moustache. But when we do, we'll discover a thinkerwho is intermittently enchanting, wise and

very helpful. Friedrich Nietzsche was born in 1844 in aquiet village in the eastern part of Germany where his father was the priest. He did exceptionally well at school and university and so excelled at ancient Greek that he was made a professor at the University of Basel when still only in his midtwenties. But his official career didn't work out.He got fed up with his fellow academics, gave

up his job and moved to Sils Maria in theSwiss alps where he lived quietly, working on his masterpieces, among them: The Birth of Tragedy,Human, All Too Human, The Gay Science, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil,On the Genealogy of Morals, He had lots of problems: he didn't get on with his family: 'I don't like my mother and it's painfuleven for me to hear my sister's voice.'

women kept rejecting him. his books didn't sell And when he was only fortyfour, he hada mental breakdown, precipitated when he saw a horse in a Turin street being beaten by its driver and ran over to embrace him shouting'I understand you'. He never recovered and died eleven sad years later. But his philosophy was full of heroism andgrandeur. He was a prophet of what he called: SELBSTÃœBERWINDUNG or SELFOVERCOMING, the process by which a greatsouled

person what he called an ÜBERMENSCH rises above theircircumstances and difficulties to embrace whatever life throws at them. He wanted his work to teach us, as he putit, ‘how to become who we really are'. His thought centers around 4 main recommendations: Own up to envy Envy is – Nietzsche recognised – a bigpart of life. Yet the lingering effects of Christianity generally teaches to be feel ashamed

of our envious feelings. They seem an indication of evil. So we hide them from ourselvesand others Yet there is nothing wrong with envy, maintainedNietzsche, so long as we use it as a guide to what we really want. Every person who makesus envious should be seen as an indication of what we could one day become. The envyinducingwriter, tycoon or chef is hinting at who you are capable of one day being. It's not that Nietzsche believed we always end up getting what we want. His own life had taught him this well enough). He simplyinsisted that we must face up to our true
