1. CNN To Play Out Modern Civilization With Classy-Sounding Brass Band

A former intern for CNN recently released a video that the cable news network's owner Ted Turner had created for the express purpose of playing it when the end of the world as we know it happens. The one-minute-long video features a brass band playing a moving version of the spiritual "Nearer My God To Thee." This will presumably be the last piece of real civilized culture many humans will get to experience before donning studded jock straps and chasing each other across desert wastelands and fighting over caches of sweet, sweet gasoline.
