Summary

Just when you thought you'd accepted your own mortality . . .Everything Is Going to Kill Everybody is bringing panic back. Twenty illustrated, hilariously fear-inducing essays reveal the chilling and very real experiments, dangerous emerging technologies, and terrifying natural disasters that soon could-or very nearly already did-bring about the end of humanity. In short, everything in here will kill you and everyone you love. At any moment. And nobody's told you about it-until now: Experiments in green energy like the HiPER, which uses massive lasers to create a tiny "contained" sun; it's an idea that could save the world if it doesn't consume us all in a fiery fusion reaction first. Global disasters like the hypercane-a hurricane so large it could cover all of North America and shoot trailer parks into space! Terrifying new developments in robotics like the EATR, which powers itself on meat-an invention in the running for "Worst Decision Made by Anybody."
