The next Y2k. In 2038 all the computers will have the date wrong because unix time resets. This will surly cause the world to explode.
Future guy one: It's 2038
Future guy two: No, it's 1901, look at the clock on my computer.
Future guy one: It's the end of the world!

The end of the world.

This is when the unix epoch reaches 2,147,483,647 (2^31 - 1) this number is too much for the system to handle and then goes to -2,147,483,648 causing confusion

there is a backup by making it 64 bits instead if 32 thus extending the limit to happen in 2486
