These kinds of news stories always seem to remind me, once again, just how fragile, and precarious, homo sapiens existence really is, i. e., just how close we all are to extinction, and not just politically speaking, or culturally, either.

Rather than start a new topic, I will interject a thought that in all likelihood has occurred elsewhere on this or that Web forum, and has been spoken to by an assortment of homo sapiens: this thought starts with a basic premise: technology has evolved to a point that homo sapiens can now chronicle in excruciating detail its own extinction, i. e., its technology, however sophisticated, is not able to stem the tide of that reality/outcome since what they have done to their environment/habitat has finally caught up with them.

So I'm wondering as the End draws near, if there was indeed enough time for the last souls as they dwindle, to create an individualized/personalized time capsule, what they would put into it????

There is a childhood leukemia cluster here and an MS spike. People looked into it being connected to a nuclear powerplant and electricity pylons but no-one ever found conclusive proof of a causal link.

I have a statistically rare disease and was astounded that the teacher in the department closest to mine also has the same disease.

Sometimes clusters just happen.
