We read in all the history books or on the internet that the dinosaurs went extinct about 65 million years ago,  after living on Earth for about 165 million years.  I don't know about you but when I think about extinction, the human race is not something that pops into my mind because it is US that keeps the planet going right?!? 

The un-answered question..."What would happen if humans went extinct?" has been the topic of many environmentalists as they feel WE are the sole cause of so many of Earth's issues. (i.e. climate change etc.)

You are probably thinking to yourself, "why are we even talking about this because it will never happen!!"  RIGHT?  WRONNNGGGGGG!?!? (according to scientists).  I don't mean to scare you BUT they are saying that the odds of humans actually going extinct are pretty damn solid.  If you are person that likes to gamble, you probably wouldn't place a bet with the odds being 1 in 14,000, but when it comes to US, the human race, not being here....I THINK IT'S TIME TO PAY ATTENTION!!!!!

THIS IS SCARY WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT.......Humans have a 1 in 14,000 chance of going extinct IN THE NEXT YEAR.  Did you see what I just wrote?!?!  IN THE NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!!! Researchers looked at fossils and other data from artifacts 350,000 years old and calculated our odds of surviving the next 365 days. WHAT?!?!?!

To put the severity of this in perspective.....you have a 1 in 700,000 chance to get hit by lightning AND a 1 in 650,000 chance to get bit by a shark, so a 1 in 14,000 chance of human extinction is more realistic than we all think. 

You might consider this a totally irrational fear that MAKES NO SENSE but it's enough to put more weight on the old saying, "Live your life and enjoy every day to the fullest!!!" -- while keeping an eye out for asteroid impacts and super volcanic eruptions!!! WTH!!!!!
