Edvard Munch’s famous painting “The Scream” is considered a masterwork of surrealism. The painting depicts a distorted figure screaming beneath an orange burning sky. However, it may be that only the screamer is surrealistically blurred. There’s a good chance that the sky in Munch’s painting was based on memory from 1883 or 1884. During this period, the sky in the western hemisphere was really the hue he depicted it, due to a violent natural event that took place on the other side of the world.
So, now that you realize there’s a chance that the Earth may at any given moment violently wipe you from existence, why not live a little? Maybe go out to a nice dinner tonight, tell your crush how you really feel about them, or rush out and get a sweet tattoo of the potential face of your annihilation.
