If life on Earth might be snuffed out at any moment, why bother with web design? I would argue we're all better off going outside and enjoying the moments we have, rather than wasting them at the computer.

Thank for giving me actual anxiety you ruined my day If I die I either go to heaven or nothing you know heaven is nice and all but staying there for infinity I mean for *ever whiteout an end* I couldn't do that but I don't want to die and go to nothing or something for ever to so what do I do? Nothing i do fucking matters at the end but still everyone including me are acting like it is I just wish I could do whatever I want as long as I'm here because we only get one chance but I can't and all of this is really upsetting me right now I just wanted to learn shit about space I didn't want it to fuck up my soul tho so thanks Kurzgesagt for ruining my day and giving me another big fear to the rest of my life👌🏽

"So, are they going to kill us?
Probably not."
In a stroke of irony, a Gamma Ray Burst struck the Earth just as Arthur was watching that segment of the video and died instantly.
