See Miss Twin Peaks 2017 Crowned At The Bomb Factory, Jam Out At The Prophet Bar And Six Other Ways To Rock This Wednesday In Dallas.

Is traffic gridlock adding to your stress? Are long lines at the supermarket slowing you down? Is the sheer mass of humanity just plain getting to you?

Well, enjoy our already densely populated earth while you can, since the U.N. says the world’s population will reach nearly 10 billion by 2050. To be fair, growth has slowed down a bit in recent years — but that’s still a lot of people, which does in fact mean longer lines once they’re all here.

So, y’know, try to enjoy life on earth with these events before the lines for everything get any longer.
