    But you're right the odds are that we have more time.  Whether we're going to make it 10s of thousands of years remains to be seen.  Modern human society hasn't even been around for 10,000 years yet (I'm counting from the first city settlements), and we're dangerously close to fucking up the entire planet and ourselves in the process.  

    Seriously, if the Cold War had turned hot, that right there could have just about wiped us out, or at a minimum seriously reduced worldwide populations.
