‘Could The Universe Collapse Today?’

29 December 2013 @ 09:35

From The London Daily Mail, Ellie Zolfagharifard [gesundheit!] reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to me][emphasis mine]:

The universe could be about to collapse and everything in it – including us – will be compressed into a small, hard ball.

The process may already have started somewhere in our cosmos and is eating away at the rest of the universe, according to theoretical physicists.

The mind-bending concept has been around for a while, but now researchers in Denmark claim they have proven it is possible with mathematical equations.

The basis of the theory is that sooner or later a radical shift in the forces of the universe will cause every particle in it to become extremely heavy.

Everything – every grain of sand, every planet and every galaxy – will become billions of times heavier than it is now.

Hmmm…sounds like we’re talking ’bout a ‘fundamental transformation’ here, where the weight of everything will be more taxing.

We warned you in 2008.

    Must be true. I’ve noticed everything getting heavier since I turned 50

    So, the way I read this, I should cash in all my investments and buy a Ferrari so I can live it up right now. Sounds good to me!

    “Universe to End Tomorrow, Women, Minorities Worst Hit”

    Pravda on the Hud, er, New York Slimes, er, Times Headline.

    “Everything – every grain of sand, every planet and every galaxy – will become billions of times heavier than it is now.”

    I admit I felt that way after Thanksgiving Dinner, but the feeling passed.
