If you watch The Science Channel too much, you will become depressed. It’s a simple fact of life.
Why do I say this? Killer volcanoes, killer wales, killer lakes, killer meteors, etc. Everything kills. There are so many ways for the natural world to turn on us. This would upset the normal soul, but, for some reason, it doesn’t upset me at all. In fact, I find it really cool… and it’s partially the reason why I love to watch The Science Channel. I have no idea why I like watching outlandish disaster scenarios that will probably never happen within my lifetime, but they are entertaining.
Besides the entertainment factor, they do put life in perspective. You could die at any moment; your life is dispensable. The thing is, though, the chance of a giant meteor hitting the earth during your lifetime is very small. It’s safe to say that it will never happen to you. But, there are so many random ways that you could die. All these percentage add up until it becomes more threatening.
It is kind of depressing, but it is a fact of life. Live life to it’s fullest and keep in mind that every day could be your last.
P.S. Yes, killer lakes do exist.
