How and When Will Humans Become Obsolete?

How and When Will People Become Obsolete?
It's going to happen. Eventually, me, you, and all the rest of the people on this planet are going to become relics of a bygone era. We'll be obsolete in a world overrun with technology that would have spun the head of someone trying to comprehend it a century prior. So how do we deal with a world in which we are no longer the dominant life form? By making fun of it and using filthy language, of course!

Cracked has collected five of the most likely ways the human race is bound to be rendered obsolete, and, of course, all of them involve our reliance on technology. Will we be destroyed by a renegade army of self-aware robots? Or will we simply become so reliant upon technology that our human personalities will be eclipsed by our digital ones? We might even be in the midst of our own extinction right now.

Some experts have predicted that we may be reaching the end of an era of technological advancement, which may result in famine, job shortages, and an economic downturn of epic proportions (umm...). They predict that the end result will be civilization's collapse and humanity's extinction. Fun, right?

Check out the rest of the list at Cracked to have a good laugh at the eventual demise of the human race. [From: Cracked]
