A World of Hulks

Imagine a world where everyone was like the Incredible Hulk. Crazy i know. Everyone running around saying shit like;
'don't make me angry, you wouldn't like me when i'm angry.'
This crazy idea popped into my head after reading a story over at the NewScientist web site about a gamma ray burst that is/was directed and coming towards Earth. Apparently on March 19 some astronomers using NASAs Swift x-ray telescope and the Optical Ultraviolet Telescope saw a record 4 bursts of gamma-rays.

'Gamma-rays bursts are thought to be caused when massive, spinning stars collapse to form black holes and spew out jets of gas at nearly the speed of light. These send gamma rays our way, along with visible light produced where the jet heats up surrounding gas.' -Rachel Courtland NS

The two NS stories are HERE and HERE. And if Marvel Comics has any this to do with it we may all be needing some purple pants and anger management classes.

  1. I don't think we need gamma rays.

    Just mention politics and watch even the most gentle people go apey.

    I had a number of ugly suprises these last few days.

    Unpleasent discovery indeed.
