Running Out of Time

Literally. Some physicists at Berkeley think there's a 50/50 chance that time itself will end some time in the future. Something to do with the Big Bang and the laws of physics. Mind you, it won't be for another 3.7 billion years. Probably just as we make the last repayment on the Anglo bailout. Just our luck...

Nearer to the present, we can rest assured that there won't be a world government by 2025. That's according to the latest report from the National Intelligence Council. They're an American organisation by the way, not an Irish one. Though you probably guessed that. They think resource scarcities will divide nations rather than bring them together. It's happening already, of course. Trying buying wheat from Russia.

But there's a sweet spot between 2025 AD and 3,700,000,000 AD. Somewhere around 2100 AD, according to an engaging set of forecasts and speculations from the Future Timeline. Though it's pretty well downhill after 10,000 AD.

Though at least by then NAMA will have returned a profit to the Irish taxpayer...
