Remember Chicken Little of The sky is falling fame? OK, so the sky didn’t fall, not then (1840), and not right now (2013). I simply think that the chicken’s critics didn’t give it enough time. I mean, there are the killer asteroids with our planet’s name on it, there are rogue planets traveling at tens of millions of miles per hour through our nether regions, there is our dying star and its subsequent expansion and super-duper global warming (the kind that would make lead melt in your hands), then of course there is the theory of entropy regarding the very future nature of the universe itself. Extrapolated, the symbol holds.
