Humor Now that I'm done with my internship and ready to take on OSNews again, I figured it'd be nice to start off with something light-hearted. I just read that Google bought an unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with a camera, ready to photograph whatever it flies across. We may consider Google's biggest threat to be privacy, but with all this computing power they have, their Street View cars, and now, unmanned flying drones, they look more and more like SkyNet to me. So, what's your most likely apocalyptic scenario?

While the scenario is good for a SyFy channel movie, anything we use on the earth stays on the earth in some form or another, mass is lost through matter to energy conversion (like burning fossil fuels), but new matter is gained every day as micro meteors rain down onto the earth. However, if the earth did suffer say, an apocalyptic asteroid impact that increases the Earth's mass substantially, then maybe it could work.
