Be careful browsing on slate.com. There's some apocalyptic party-pooping going on, and if you ride your bike every where you go, have chickens in the back yard and closed your bank account, then maybe you're ahead of this end-curve.
For more end-time revelry, check out Josh Levin's series on how America is going to end here. You get to choose how you think it all goes down and keep track of what others are thinking, too. A nice community-building social media exercise that even mom might like.
You can also keep track on Facebook, which is probably the real reason America ends, but I noticed Levin doesn't mention that as a possibility.
