Worried that the LHC may have destroyed the Earth, and you missed it? Or that a giant asteroid impact on the other side of the planet may be sending a gigantic shock wave to crush you flat?

And if you wonder what other ways the Earth may end, they have an interesting list there, too. I cover more in my book, but this is a decent enough start.
