In case you don't have enough to worry about

Two new ways the world can end.

"Our Final Invention: How the Human Race Goes and Gets Itself Killed". (I would have thought Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics took care of this but apparently not.)

"Collapse of the universe is closer than ever before".

Old ways: "10 Recent Times the World Almost Ended".

Far less dramatic than the end of the world, but still worrisome . . . 

"A Horrific 'Silent Epidemic' Is Spreading In The American Southwest".

"Parents warned of alarming new trend of students snorting Smarties that can lead to NASAL maggots".

But take heart: some people have been compiling advice for what to do if a (small) nuke goes off in your city.

"Where To Hide If A Nuclear Bomb Is Dropped On Your City".

"How to shelter from fallout after a nuclear attack on your city".

"Collapse of the universe is closer than ever before".

Nothing to worry about; you couldn't see it coming.


As for nuclear bombs, about 40 years ago Dean Ing wrote a series of articles under the general heading "Gimme shelter" that listed a whole bunch of useful things you could do. Some of them would work today just as well. For instance, making an air filter out of rolls of toilet paper. I don't have all the articles any more. I have looked and not found them online. Too bad. I do remember quite a few of them.
