Scientists Predict Devastating "Superstorm" To Hit California!

Oh, good! Just another sign of the apocalypse!

A group of over 100 scientists and experts with the U.S. Geological Survey have discovered that California's geological history includes 'superstorms' that hit the state once every 100-200 years, and have the potential to flood a quarter of the state's homes, cause $300-$400 billion in damages, four or five times the amount that a major earthquake could!

The last time one of these storms struck, it was over a 300-mile stretch of the Central Valley, from 1861-1862. According to Geological Survey director Marcia K. McNutt, the floods were so bad that the state capital had to be moved to San Francisco! Even larger storms are thought to have hit in the years 212, 440, 603, 1029, 1418, and 1605.

Due to the rising temperatures in the atmosphere, scientists fear that the next big one could be on its way, and created a model to simulate what one of these 'superstorms' would be like. According to the model, it could last for over 40 days and dump 10 feet of water on the state, due to an "atmospheric river" that could move water "at the same rate of 50 Mississippis discharging water into the Gulf of Mexico." Winds could reportedly reach 125 mph.

Holy shiz!

Geological Survey scientist Lucy Jones concludes:

"We think this event happens once every 100 or 200 years or so, which puts it in the same category as our big San Andreas earthquakes."

Oh good! So if this superstorm doesn't get us, an earthquake will!

Luckily, federal and state emergency management officials are aware of such a potentially disastrous event, and held a conference last week about emergency preparations in case one were to actually hit.

We sincerely hope that this next one waits a few more hundred years or so!

Scary stuff, but the best we can do is hopefully have measures in place to ensure that if something like this were to happen, everyone affected by it would be safe and out of harm's way.

Yeesh! Thoughts??

Hey Homophobe! Anderson Cooper's Calling You Out!

Leave it to CNN's Silver Fox to set a crazy straight.

Last night on Anderson 360, Anderson Cooper inducted Cindy Jacobs, the woman who attributed the recent strange deaths of hundreds of birds to the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell," to his Ridiculist.

Take a listen to what he has to say about her in the clip (above) from the show.

P.S. - This maybe the first time a reference to Babe has been used in a intellectual debate and has made perfect sense.

Has The X-Men: First Class Villain Been Revealed?

x men first class villain may have been revealed

Back in August, we announced some exciting details on the plot of X-Men: First Class!

Now, it looks like the X-Men MAY have their villain!

Here's a hint at the bad guy from a plot summary for the film:

"Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not arch-enemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men."

Armageddon could def be the villain, as there have been two characters in the Marvel Universe that have gone by that name. They are…

- An artificially-created offspring of Apocalypse

- Ruler of alien "Troyjan empire"/antagonist for The Hulk

The name Armageddon could, of course, also refer to the Bruce Willis/Ben Affleck movie an event that could potentially end the world…if the X-Men don't stop it.

Hopefully we'll learn more soon. We're just excited to hear updates! We're pumped for this one!

What do U think Armageddon refers to here? Offspring? Alien Emperor? End Of The World? Liv Tyler flick?
