Apparently there was too much happy news, because a new theory has been aired suggesting that in 100 million years the universe will start contracting back into the infinitely dense dot of hot garbage it started out as. But we won’t be able to test that theory for another 65 million years or so.
We won’t miss that time. In 2016, we had already watched 400 million years’ worth of YouTube videos.
I mean, if you were wondering why, “despite the surge in sales of fitness trackers, physical activity declined from 1995 to 2017,” that would seem to be a pertinent data point.
There’s probably also a point to be made here about how, to use Twitter the way Twitter wants you to, you basically have to make it your job, but other people are getting to that for me.
