One thing none of us will be able to avoid is death. It may…
Generally speaking, it’s not a pleasant thing to think about your own death. Strangely, it may be slightly more comforting to think that we’ll all go together. Misery loves company, right? Various religious groups and cults have predicted the end of the world more times than you can imagine since man first walked the earth.

It’s not pleasant to think of our world coming to a violent end, but it is something that is definitely possible.

Nobody really knows what happens next.
