Personally I have asked to be dropped into a live volcano.
Return me to my other mother, and as a side benefit, those mourning me will get an interesting vacation- probably to a tropical locale where a live volcano may be found.
Saves on many costs, adds a few others, but a vacation and story of a lifetime (take that any way you want) are worth it.
Educating the children is probably the best way:
Yeah, cartoons, science and some catchy music.
Doubt is fine, the problem is most people can't be bothered to educate themselves and think for themselves.
They would rather let a talking head (scientist, religious leader, etc) do their thinking and tell them which view point/idea has merit rather than being able to figure out what is correct, or more likely to be correct. Worse is that there is much closed mindedness in that people can't see any viewpoint but their own.
We, as a collective species, need to use our own brains and learn at least enough to intelligently follow a given discourse whether it be weather, law, or anything else.
Likelihood of that happening? 0%- although this forecast has been done without much scientific rigour.
Not that this is likely to be seen...but, if you want a good version (the real version, approved by Asimov) then get the Illustrated screenplay by Harlan Ellison.
When I heard the movie was coming out I was assuming it to be this, when I looked up the writer and it was not Ellison I refused to see it, and still have not...I'll just read the original or this.
But of course...they're already remaking everything imaginable.
It will be the remake of 2012.
"2012 II, this time it's for real!"
Sorry, I posted this. Needed to save my place while getting work done at the same time.
I am me, and I endorsed this message.
I'm just happy when people in the US can correctly identify that my home state, Delaware, is in fact a state...
Identified as being somewhere near Maine? No.
O, near Boston? What? Boston is a city, we are a state, try further south.
Invariably I have to explain that we are in Maryland- they know where that is for some reason.
Look, unless many Bothans die to bring me this "vital" information, I am just not interested.
I measure the value of interest in Bothans/pg. I expect a high amount of Bothan deaths/pg of info. If we aren't talking at least 10 BD/p then I ain't interested.
However, this video was cool, if we can fix the shaky-cam somehow, even cooler.
I for one welcome our bovine overlor....wait, they're already here.
Moooove along, nothing new here.
