Description

Just when you thought you’d accepted your own mortality . . . Everything Is Going to Kill Everybody is bringing panic back. Twenty illustrated, hilariously fear-inducing ?essays reveal the chilling and very real experiments, dangerous emerging technologies, and terrifying natural disasters that soon couldor very nearly already didbring about the end of humanity. In short, everything in here will kill you and everyone you love. At any moment. And nobody’s told you about ituntil now:
 
•   Experiments in green energy like the HiPER, which uses massive lasers to create a tiny “contained” sun; it’s an idea that could save the world if it doesn’t consume us all in a fiery fusion reaction first.
•   Global disasters like the hypercane—a hurricane so large it could cover all of North America and shoot trailer parks into space!
•   Terrifying new developments in robotics like the EATR, which powers itself on meatan invention in the running for “Worst Decision Made by Anybody.”
