"For me and you and everyone else around today, the universe will be over in less than 10^2 years," [Nobel Prize winner in physics Steven Weinberg] said. In his peculiarly sardonic way, Weinberg seemed as jolly as all the other cosmologists. "The universe will come to an end, and that may be tragic, but it also provides its fill of comedy. Postmodernists and social constructivists, Republicans and socialists and clergymen of all creeds—they're all an endless source of amusement."
