I swear everywhere I turn someone is sprading the "doom and gloom" Just like how all these "experts" say our oil is going to peak in 2010, to the "experts" who say that the world is coming to an end in 2012 and that we're all going to die a fiery death. Then theres all of those other "predictions" from scientists who claim such things as the ocean is going to fart one day and we're all going to die, to a massive eathquake that will kill us all. And all of these scientists are convinced that it will be their prediction that will kill us, not anything else. I get tired of it all, we're all going to be fine. Internet isn't running out. Just like we're not running out of oil, either.
