Posted: Updated:

Sky blue? I have a friend who's color-blind, and she tells me the sky is a kind of washed-out gray. So we can all agree there are lots of excellent perspectives on this.

Oceans deep? I've never personally descended to their sandy depths in an atom-powered mini-sub, so that isn't a question I feel I can answer right now.

Giant asteroid strikes Earth, causing polar ice caps to melt, triggering massive tsunamis and dooming mankind to millenia of slavery under a newly ascendant race of super-intelligent cyborgs -- Pro or con? You know, Dr. King was great. {Hold for applause} Yeah. Yeah.
