Dear everyone linking to that NASA

Dear everyone linking to that "NASA collapse is coming" study/thing: Brilliance is knowing when the bubble will pop, not knowing it's there.

Other news: You are dying. The North/South poles will flip. The USA will (eventually) become something else. The climate will change. The Sun will go Nova/Dark (pick one or both).

Personally, I've got nothing to worry about until the stars grow cold..

NASA Clarifies Its Role in Civilization-Collapse Study

NASA officials released this statement on the study today (March 20): "A soon-to-be published research paper, 'Human and Nature Dynamics (HANDY): Modeling Inequality and Use of Resources in the Collapse or Sustainability of Societies' by University of Maryland researchers Safa Motesharrei and Eugenia Kalnay, and University of Minnesota's Jorge Rivas, was not solicited, directed or reviewed by NASA. It is an independent study by the university researchers utilizing research tools developed for a separate NASA activity. As is the case with all independent research, the views and conclusions in the paper are those of the authors alone. NASA does not endorse the paper or its conclusions."
