Killer Chaos Cloud

Is a killer "chaos cloud" heading towards the Earth, spelling our ultimate doom?

Uh, duh. No.

A lot of people are emailing me about it though. Yahoo News, those goofballs, reproduced an article in (wait for it...) the Weekly World News, claiming that this criminal cosmic killer chaos cloud would annihilate us in 2014.

I didn't write up a detailed debunking of this, since it's from the Weekly World News. I mean, really! But I did write a brief Bad Astronomy article about it, and it's up on my news section of the main site. Read all about it there.

Sheesh. Killer clouds. What's next? Astrology? No, wait. That's always in real newspapers. My work will never ever end.
