But there are a few apocalyptic dates lined up in case you are not ready for that one.
There is 2030 when resources run out according to the 1972 study.
There is 2040 when the event horizon of artificial intelligence is reached.
and 2042 when *nix clocks will wrap and potentially destroy all data in all databases everywhere.
Or you can wait for a catastrophic release of frozen methane from an arctic region due to warming,
Or any one of a number of meteor strikes.
