Because I love news heralding the end of the world as much as you do, I just read a large crack has recently formed in Ethiopia and may house a future ocean after the apocalypse of 2012.
A 35-mile rift in the desert of Ethiopia will likely become a new ocean eventually, researchers now confirm.
The crack, 20 feet wide in spots, opened in 2005 and some geologists believed then that it would spawn a new ocean. But that view was controversial, and the rift had not been well studied.
A new study involving an international team of scientists and reported in the journal Geophysical Research Letters finds the processes creating the rift are nearly identical to what goes on at the bottom of oceans, further indication a sea is in the region's future.
Note: That's not an actual photo of the crack there, that's just a picture I ripped off the internet. However, I will use this time to propose that the Grand Canyon will also house a future ocean. I called it first! Unless it doesn't happen, in which case it was your idea. Idiot.

Thanks to Josh, who's smart enough to know the oceans were created when God cried after realizing just how beautiful he'd made me.
NOTE: Full-res shot HERE because you can't see a damn thing in this one. Don't even lie, your eyes aren't that good.
The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the ocean and extends at least 7 miles below sea level. That's deep. So deep nothing but my penis can reach the bot... / Continue →
When the world floods only a few people will survive. I will be one of them, because I'm blasting off in a rocket ship instead of jumping onto a glorified cruise ship. But whatever. The Freedom Ship, which is a floating city, has existed as a concept for some time. But now ... / Continue →
According to Google Maps and other atlases, Sandy Island is a little island in the South Pacific to the east of Australia. Except, SURPRISE, it isn't really there. I bet it was a fake island Google Maps added to ensure nobody was copying their maps and trying to sell them as ... / Continue →
