We’ll just have to wait and see about this.

We can’t even get the 5 day weather forecast right and I'm supposed to believe this?

The sun and Earth will probably be spun out into a lonely region of space when the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies finish colliding about five billion years from now, researchers say in a new study.

There's also a small chance that our solar system will be swept from its home in the Milky Way and scooped up by Andromeda during an earlier close encounter, in just three-and-a-half-billion years.

Anyway if this doesn’t happen I want all these scientists fired immediately.

Reminds me of the joke about the scientist who tells his friend that in five billion years the sun is going to burn out and all life on earth will die. The friend acts horrified and asks the scientist to repeat his statement after which the friend says, "Whew, for a minute there, I thought you said five MILLION years!"

Glad I didn't buy my wife that Eternity Ring after all. I knew it would be a waste of money.
