Good News/Bad News

Science News This Week:  Andrew Rushby and his team of scientists at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom stated in an article published in "Astrobiology" that Earth will eventually drift into a "hot zone". 

Water is the key to sustaining life in habitable zones.  Currently, Earth is at the right distance from our star, namely the sun, for liquid water.  However, if Earth drifted any closer to the sun, the oceans would evaporate and life would cease to thrive.  Rushby says that is exactly what WILL happen.  That's the bad news.  The good news is that it wouldn't happen for another 1.75 billion years.  Of course, there is always the possibility of another doomsday scenario happening prior to that.......things like a nuclear holocaust happening on the planet, or we're hit by an asteroid...

.......or Celine Dion puts out another CD.

So, the bad news is the world will end in 1.75 billion years from now.  The good news is that means I WILL have enough time to pay off my mortgage.

Today's More's Mystery

August 20, 2014.........Looking for an occupation........

1.  Working at this occupation, you would be required to wear a uniform.

2.  Originally, the name of this occupation came from the fact that people who worked at it were required to spring into action at a particular sound. That's not so much the case anymore.

3.  The people who work at this profession rely mainly on tips.

Bell Hop

The job's name is derived from the fact that the hotel's front desk clerk rang a bell to summon and employee, who would then "hop" to attention at the desk to receive instructions.
