The holocaust was a natural disaster? In any case, I always used to listen to "Yakkety Sax" during takeoff and landing, since if the plane crashed, I knew it death wouldn't seem so bad when such a silly song was playing. Soon, I stopped flying altogether.

Want to try to make something funny, but don't have a creative, clever, or funny bone in your body? Just randomly put Yakety Sax over some video footage, and voila!

Seriously, it's the laziest attempt at humor these days as far as making "funny" videos go. Just don't.

Aw man, y'all bashing on grippycat's second post. It's not deleteworthy.

That Yakkity Sax is wonderfully tacky.

Before I got it into my seriously thick noggin' that one wasn't supposed to put additional links into a thread after making the post *cringe, I referred to this awesome video, sans Yakkity Sax, a couple of times when discussing meteorites: Kaboom and in MeteorFilter. But then the video was taken down from Youtube for copyright infringement. Glad it's back up there again. It's an amazing piece of animation.

There is something deliciously schadenfreudish about the Japanese voiceover in the original version, all purring, cooing and soft as the meteor impacts, depicting The End of Life As We Know It.

My theory: the last time this happened nothing larger than a chicken survived, mammals evolved, mankind evolved stupid and warlike, developing ever more powerful weapons. World wars evolved, during the last, one tribe developed atomic bombs another tribe rockets capable of escaping the gravity well. Meanwhile a Swiss chemist developed a compound that seemed to increase intelligence, put that together and we have tools to defend the planet as a whole from celestial impacts, if we are smart enough not to use them on ourselves. Meanwhile the central nevous system of the planet is evolving with more connectivity developing everyday. The trees are the lungs of the world the oceans and soil the digestive.

no wait - i can explain exactly why i thought this would be an awesome second fpp:

i'm too cheap to buy any battlestar galactica dvds, so i was looking on youtube for dvd extras. did you know that there's a crapload of extended/deleted scenes, cast-and-crew-and-family-filmed behind-the-scenes videos and workprints with unreleased video and alternate storylines all over the place for all kinds of movies?
then, from one of the related links from the crow, i ended up on a series of ghostbustery/fortean sites, and was re-reading a few ghost stories i remembered from a few years back about Black-Eyed Kids, and was bemused to find it was a deliberate, kinda-successful attempt by the author to create memey majicks. then from reading about successful and unsuccessful meme attempts, i ended up on tvtropes and reading about how there are somethings which can make anything funny (like adding monkeys. or midgets.). i'd heard that adding yakety sax could make anything funny, so i figured the apocalypse was pretty much as objectively unfunny as you could get, and searched for yakety sax apocalypse. the result was so awesome i had to share.

i'm so sorry, i'm going to fit myself with mittens and back away from the computer.

i promise i'm out of rye.

The year 1994. From out of space comes a runaway planet, hurtling between the Earth and the Moon, unleashing cosmic destruction. Man's civilization is cast in ruin.

Two thousand years later, Earth is reborn. A strange new world rises from the old: a world of savagery, super-science, and sorcery. But one man bursts his bonds to fight for justice. With his companions Ookla the Mok, and Princess Ariel, he pits his strength, his courage, and his fabulous sun-sword against the forces of evil. He is Thundarr, the Barbarian!

Precisely! Which is why I think the tune is what makes it funny. They (neo-cons/fundies) really think it's all fun and games and getting to Rapture. Transposing the horror of a truly humanity ending event that erases everything they ever stood for and technically makes their dreams come true with Yakkity Sax is ludicrous, which makes me giggle.

Maybe that's just further proof of something not being right with my poor little brain, but it seemed worth chiming in on with all of the cries for deletion.

Ain't much one can do about an impact this big; however, there are many many smaller rocks that can easily kill us all if we're not prepared, but can't kill us all if we're ready, hence the desire for governments to spend some money, you know, looking for the things.

For more on this subject that doesn't involve Benny Hill:
The odds that a potentially devastating space rock will hit Earth this century may be as high as one in 10. So why isn’t NASA trying harder to prevent catastrophe? Other scientists are making equally unsettling discoveries. Only in the past few decades have astronomers begun to search the nearby skies for objects such as asteroids and comets (for convenience, let’s call them “space rocks”). What they are finding suggests that near-Earth space rocks are more numerous than was once thought, and that their orbits may not be as stable as has been assumed. There is also reason to think that space rocks may not even need to reach Earth’s surface to cause cataclysmic damage. Our solar system appears to be a far more dangerous place than was previously believed.

I'd argue for a description more as quasi-cancer - if we're viewing Earth as a superorganism, humans certainly aren't external parasites. I say quasi-cancer because there is the potentiality for humans to go from the current "malignant" state to a "benign" or "useful" one, and also because cancer cells (to my knowledge, though biology is a fucking wily thing) do not perform useful functions to the greater organism while one can argue that humanity does or will (such as potentially protecting the Earth from impact events) even while doing harm.

The Earth is the brain of the Earth;

Gee whiz, Tim, just having a little fun here. But since you serioused:

Now do please describe the cognition you see as being carried out by the Earth sans humans.

The claim that humanity is the Earth's brain implies that the Earth would die without us, and all its life functions would cease. I don't think that's the case, which you seem to agree with, but I think in asking what the Earth's "brain" is, we then need to define what the Earth "organism" is - just the geological mass? Plus or minus atmosphere? What about life forms? Everything, including the humans? If just the geo mass, then I guess the brain would be the various and sundry currents of magma under the surface, or whatever drives them. If we include the atmosphere, then we have things such as composition, temperature, wind speed and direction contributing to the health of the planet. If we include life on the planet, then there are of course different species that depend on other species for their survival, and so on. It doesn't seem to me that we can really separate one "part" of the Earth organism from the others and say "yes, this is the thing running the whole show".

Now, if you mean "cognition" in the psychological, self-knowing sense - I have no idea if our planet possesses self-awareness. It's a warm, comforting thought, though.

Things that have brains need those brains to live. I don't see mankind as necessary to Earth's survival. Ergo, the question of whether or not an organism needs a brain never entered the picture.

Tiger.

If I died in a drive-by shooting, I wouldn't be the target, just collateral damage, the result of an error, and then I'd probably be incinerated. My death would be pointless and I'd end up air pollution.

If a tiger ate me, I'd be lunch for a big, rare, beautiful animal, and then maybe I'd be fertilizer for some lovely plants.

Wait. Drive-by.

If some asshole kills me in a drive-by shooting, he (with luck) goes to jail forever, so my death takes a murderous asshole off the streets.

If a tiger eats me, some asshole will probably kill the tiger. I don't want the tiger to die.
