    2015 - Expedition to Gamma Beta 352 launched. Primary mission goal designated the prejudiced eradication of all Sciuridae genus life forms present, which were found to be the source of the universe's squirrel infestation.
    - coincided with GW2 expansion Squirrelius Terminus, the hugely popular title that saw the destruction of Squirrelius, Elder Dragon of nuts.

    Ah! Shows how much I know.

    Sorry, for scoring how much of his staff from Blizzard? Playful jabs, nothing more.

    What did he do at Mythic and when did he leave? My smart phone is being really dumb right now and won't open a lot of sites.

    2020: "After the release of 5 more expansions for Guild Wars 2, its player-base reaches 1 billion subscribers galaxy-wide and galaxy-peace is nearly achieved," says CNN news reporter Mif Miffington.

    (note: At this point, 8 years from now, we've somehow moved to other planets (must have found a way to travel fast), gotten internet to connect between them, and have really overpopulated...)

    2036: Apophis. "Following the defeat of Colin Johanson, who is revealed to be the only person who could stop Apophis from colliding with earth, Squirrelbanes must take up his burden and his sword and fight off Apophis, which scientists believed to be an asteroid, but actually turned out to be a Vogon inter-galactic highway demolition ship."

    Why has this thread turned into coming up with silly dates?
