I like the way you worded your question, it made me smile. Now, to answer it:

Wasn't it Marie Curie who died of radiation poisoning soon after inventing the X-ray machine?

Didn't the Americans have no idea of the huge amount of devestation and destruction they would cause by dropping the newly invented A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

In fact, only last week wasn't there a risk of destroying the entire universe by creating a big black hole when they switched on the Hadron Collidor? It never happened, but it could have. We just don't know - it could have killed us all.

The problem with all new inventions is that until they've been tested, how can we possibly know if they're safe?

So, to answer your question... not long at all! It's only a matter of time before our scientists invent something that brings about the complete destruction of the world.

On the other hand, we can't simply live life in ignorance and there is really no point in living if you're not willing to take risks, so I say let's keep inventing and bring on the apocolypse baby, cause I'll be ready! Don't forget - cats have 9 lives, they can afford to lose a few.
