Why worry my friend? You could get knocked over by a bus tomorrow, or get shot during a bank raid. Dead is dead. We all die in the end, we cannot live forever, even as a species.
Really, do not lose any sleep over it.

While DIA is creepy because of it's underground bunker-type asylaum; and there may or may not be underground tunnels with Black Ops Warfare taking place, I don't belive it is healthy to have threads that cry Wolf every few days. Business as usual will always commence and if there in fact will be some catastrophic event that TPTB are privy to, any credible leak will not be forthcoming from this site! We are all pooched if this in fact is the case or else every second day we all will be bunkering down worrying about armageddon. Hell because someone saw someone who heard something somewhere. Bah! I love ATS, and actually get my kicks out of these threads but C'mon. Really.

Good thread and links
Is that art work something that people see just walking through the terminal?
According to Compilots.com, there were 13 windshields that cracked in February of 2007. The official reason is supposedly high winds, although there is no explanation as to why high winds have never caused such a series of cracks at other airports. It is still considered a mystery. In December of 2008, a plane with a mysterious crack in its fuselage actually burst into flame on the runway, injuring several passengers.
Winds reaching up to 100 miles-per-hour have been whipping through the Colorado foothills, but airport officials say they've never seen anything like this. The weather was so cold and windy this weekend that parts of Colorado's Interstate 70 were in a near whiteout, and some ski areas closed lifts.
On the tarmac and in flight, the weather has had damaging affects on airplane windshields.
"This is not only unusual, I know of no precedent for anything like this where multiple windshields have been cracked, simply by being in a particular place at a particular time," said John Nance, a pilot and aviation consultant for ABC News.
The verdict is in. It was FOD, or "foreign object debris," that fractured at least 21 front and side windshields on 14 planes at Denver International Airport on Feb. 16, according to air safety investigators.
The pilots of one plane reported taxiing through "some dirt and debris" before the cracking occurred, said Denver-based National Transportation Safety Board investigator Jennifer Kaiser, who led the probe of the bizarre DIA incident.
Wind gusts at the airport reached 48 mph, said Kyle Fredin of the National Weather Service. While winds of that intensity are at the "high end," they are not that unusual.
Cracks showed up on 14 planes - from SkyWest Airlines, Frontier Airlines and Great Lakes Airlines - within about three hours in the early afternoon.
Some have speculated that this is due to an abnormally high or low frequency pulse that is being emanated by the airport.

I wouldn't lose sleep over it mate.
Even if the world was going to end soon (and I highly doubt it will) there would be nothing you could do anyway.
