6. Cheer up! When the end comes, no one will be collecting student debt,

so get all you want! Man, the end of everything is just a license to do what you really want to do!

You've got it backwards on energy costs - they're falling and will fall for the foreseeable future. And government debt? Just paper. That only leads climate to deal with, and fortunately, more knowledge, not less, will be needed to deal with that.

Doom and gloomers usually have a comet to catch, and they're just a drag on the rest of us. Or do you think we might as well all put a bullet in our heads and avoid the pain to come? Start hanging with a better crowd or get some therapy if you really think that current high school grads might as well skip college because the end is soon.

We fleas on this planet dog have very little long-term effect, and a near-extinction event is not an extinction event. Knowledge can never be a waste. never.
