We Almost Died

From Slashdot

SJrX writes “The BBC is reporting that scientists have detected “the biggest explosion observed by humans within [the past 400 years]“. The explosion luckily occured about 50,000 light years away form us, on the far side of the Milky Way, as the article goes on to say that had the explosion been within 10 light years of us, it “would possibly have triggered a mass extinction.”"

Article comment from zapadoo:

“Dang! Extinction has an upside — it would be nice to start over and ditch the red-state, blue-state stuff and perhaps come out better for starting anew. Maybe the next batch of primordial ooze will grow up smarter than us, and perhaps along the way find something less verbose than XML in the process!”
