But it might offend people, so I am reviewing it before posting. If this one is too much, I'll just write about the less offensive half.
In the meantime!
This is a cool article because it talks about using age to determine how much longer something will last -- the idea that a company that's been around for fifty years will probably be around for fifty more, but most new startups crash. According to that logic, the human race has between 5,100 and 7.8 million years left to go -- with a 95% confidence level. That flies in the face, I guess, of all those people who are rooting for the apocalypse in the next six months. Of course, there is always that 5% chance.
