1. What's this, you ask? Oh, just a random hole that has been burning for forty consecutive years.


The Burning Gates of Turkmenistan. Found by accident in the 1950's while trying to drill for natural gases, this hell hole refuses to quit burning. It's a WARNING.

3. This is the Large Hadron Collider. It exists to answer some questions, and to potentially end all lives.


Particles are constantly being passed through this 17-mile loop at extremely high speeds. When they collide, things happen. What things? Potentially a brand new big bang. The Higgs Boson. The elusive Strange Matter. We know so little about this stuff that it could very well get out of hand in the blink of an eye.

6. When earth finds itself in the path of a massive burst of solar wind - everyone suffers.


It only happens a couple times a decade. But when it does, in addition to the ominous bright and colorful lights you'll see at night time, it completely messes with all electronic devices. And when the internet goes, we all go. Right?

You're still here? Good. You're cleared to watch World War Z, now. Congratulations!
