@oralloy,
Well, sure. Why else would we be talking about stuff?

Some future milestones:

100 billion years: universe's rate of expansion pulls everything outside the Local Group away from us faster than the speed of light, cutting the rest of the universe off from us forever

10 trillion years: current red dwarfs run out of fuel

100 trillion years: the last star-formation regions run out of material for new stars

110 trillion years: the last red dwarf stars run out of fuel

1000 trillion years: most surviving planets are ejected from now-dead solar systems

10 million trillion years: most surviving planets and now-dead stars are ejected from galaxies

100 million trillion years: the few planets remaining in now-dead solar systems spiral in and crash into their dead star

1 million trillion trillion years: the few planets and now-dead stars not ejected from galaxies spiral into central supermassive black hole

I think it is being too optimistic that humans will be around that long to see the demise of our solar system. Human genetics will probably fail sometime in the next few thousand years and we will become extinct.
We are human, we plan and do. Its our job.
DOing as you and Hightor reflect upon, I submit, is not in our genes. And to have our "genetics" fail is also not within our species playbook. Rather than demise, our old friend evolution (no doubt it will be technologically augmented as Ros inferred). We are the fist and only species to be able to control our micro environments and now it appears that we shall command our genomes to some presently unknown degree.

By the time all this takes place, we may be integrated with machines in ways we can only imagine.

I think this will be the case in a mere few thousand years, much less millions or billions.

@oralloy,
Theres a log plot of the timeline to "red death" of the Universe. Did you pull those numbers from the log plot? can you post the log plot?

@farmerman,
I got the numbers from these pages:

http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/end.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_far_future

I described the events in my own words, and changed numbers like "10^12" to "trillion".

@oralloy,
Excellent!. I especially like the charts . Using a log scale it would be easy to include so many of the biological projection.

Im amazed that they even included the return of native earthworms to the Laurentide latitudes.

The chart seems to be more in favor of engineering the earth orbit farther out in order to escape the hostile environment. I never thought of that , yet somehow it seems rather foolhardy without temporarily stashing humans onto Mars for a generation or two while they try to jack the earth back into a new "Goldilocks zone".

This shall occupy a chart space next to my periodic table and chart of mineral extinctions.

@farmerman,
SOme oof the language and terms used are kinda last week. We dont use "Bubnoff units " much any more ever since a number of scientists complained that it was so "inside" and vague of a description when we have perfectly good terms in the cgs and fps systems. At least the non spcialists could picture how much elevation is being described in feet or meters.

@farmerman,
The Applebees staff in Tomball was so inept they shut down the whole restaurant. The wife and I once sat in there nearly an hour before walking out, unserved.

@edgarblythe,
Not all Applebees are created equal. Those in huge market areas are generally actually good restaurants employing creative menus that are rotated regularly where good entrees are NOT abandoned (LIKE P. F. CHANG"S who mercilessly stopped serving their lemon prawns over a bed of lightly killed green onion tops).

Anyway, as a restaurant on a new planet I would have to nominate Applebees since they generally take over a market spot and nourish travellers nicely.
