We're all doomed

I was interested to read in today's paper that while the International Atomic Energy Agency has declared a state of emergency at the Fukushima nuclear power station in Japan, it is in fact "the lowest on its sliding scale" of warnings. Not that you would know it from some of the headlines...

Here for those without an IAEA handbook are the other marks on their apocalypse scale:
  1. State of emergency
  2. Oh-oh
  3. Cancel that dinner reservation
  4. Holy crap
  5. Lucky I wore brown trousers
  6. Run like the wind
  7. **** *****ing ****ety **** ****
  8. Boom
