    Given the high cost of food, maybe it has already happened, but they never announced it on the news.

    One meteoroid wouldn’t be big enough. You’ll need an asteroid or a comet.

    Technically, though, if either a meteroid or an asteroid enters the atmosphere the result would be considered a meteor. We’ve just never seen an asteroid enter our atmosphere, so nobody’s ever had to decide to call one a meteor before. That leaves the definition a bit hazy and open to interpretation and reinterpretation.

    Not a single prediction of the end of the world has come to pass. Even thought there are very many stupid people, there are also enough who are intelligent and care so that we have a good chance to survive and thrive for a long time to come.

    I don’t think mankind will survive simply because the more technology increases, the dumber and lazier we get as a species. Something like Sky Net would be the end.

    Some say the world will end in fire,

    Some say in ice.

    From what I’ve tasted of desire

    I hold with those who favor fire.

    But if it had to perish twice,

    I think I know enough of hate

    To say that for destruction ice

    Is also great

    And would suffice.

    So Pastis was watching Jurrasic World: Dominion when he drew this? Given how far in advance he submits strips, I wonder if he’d just gone to see it in theaters.
