** With the collective media madness over the alleged russian interference in the US 2016 pres. election and the subsequent push for a more agressive anti-russian foreign policy, the escalation of military conflictS in the middle east, the far right swing in Europe and the (still pretty much ignored) fact that all the financial bubbles that exploded in 2007/08 are now bigger tan before, this comic has turned into horrifying, (hopefully) unintentional foreshadowing. And there're plenty of regions where screaming in sheer terror is alredy too common. Happy 2017.

** And the second one, which makes the first a true nightmare for anyone under 60, is that while it took over 11000 years for the average temperature to rise 4 degrees and reach 0°C, it'll take humanity a little more than a century to achieve the same effect and get to 4°C.

* [[http://xkcd.com/751/ This]] is a true nightmare depending on your own views on morality, culture and progress.
** Also, it perfectly illustrates a nightmare many parents have now: you can't know (and by extention, controll) what your kids will find on the internet and when. Your child may "learn" some grown-up stuff online and try it out not knowing what they're really doing.

** And the second one, which makes the first a true nightmare for anyone under 60, is that while it took over 11000 years for the average temperature to rise 4 degrees and reach 0°C, it'll take humanity a little more than a century to achieve the same effect and get to 4°C.
*** [[http://www.xkcd.com/1321/ These]] [[http://www.xkcd.com/1379/ two]] comics illustrate what that means.
