Synopsis:

We're Sick, A Lot of the World is Sick, and We're Looking at How the Earth Will End.

This is the way the world ends.
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.
We talked about the various ways in which the Earth might actually end its existence in time frames from less than 2,000,000 years to trillions and trillions of years from now.

We talked about a woman in Texas who had a bogus felony warrant hanging over her for 22 years, and she didn't even know about it! She may have lost jobs in that time because of it.
