I logged on this morning to find a Discovery Channel video on my screen. I clicked it and–holy shit!–they said the Milky Way is gonna crash into the Andromeda Galaxy! The two galaxies are hurtling toward each other at more than 270,000 miles per hour! We’re all gonna be vaporized!

About that time a cloud passed over the sun! I raced to the window to see if Andromeda was coming. In that moment I thought about a lot of things, including the half-full bottle of 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle in my bar. It wouldn’t do to let that go to waste. I cast a longing look at the hallway that led to the bourbon, and braced myself for impact.

When nothing happened, I googled the story and found it to be true. Collision IS imminent, and it will indeed be the end of Earth. However, even though we’re racing toward each other at 270,000 mph, the collision is not going to take place until……..4.2 BILLION years from now!

Not one to take chances, I poured myself a useful amount of Pappy and copied the link so you could watch the video yourself. Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEswCsqWlPQ Enjoy. Too bad there ain’t enough bourbon to pass around.

I'm totally going to dress like a Star Wars charcater everyday for the rest of my life. I wonder how the ladies around town will feel about a storm trooper doing make up on them??

John, Good call on the Pappy Van Winkle. I am trying a new bourbon Black Maple Hill. Good to know I still have time to enjoy it. I just hope the scientist did the math correctly.

Yeah, if the scientist was using one of those old computers with the Intel program that gave approximates instead of the real math answers, we could all be in trouble.

Pass a glass over here.
