Why Back to the Future's Ending Is Actually Horrifying

This youth-shattering video originally popped up in July, but no one's managed to explain to me since then: what did happen to Biff? Someone, please, take me back to a future where the stuff hasn't been pointed out. [Cracked]

It's not near as bad as Hot Tub Time Machine, though (I can't remember if this video pointed that at as well, don't have sound at the moment). I remember watching the end of that movie and thinking "What ... the fuck? So the main guy now has a brand new wife who is apparently awesome, but he has absolutely no memories with her other than a single night 20-30 years ago. That is macabre."
