I just called in sick to work and left a voice message for my manager. I now have 3 days to max out my credit cards. I hope they’re right this time. Paying these credit cards off again will break me.

Kinda goofy. That big dude, first picture in source article, has an identical copy of my Son's plastic Mjöllnir.

Also...

Hasn't happened. Won't until the next Ice Age kicks in. Probably about another thousand years.

“When I was but a child, my aged grandmother told me a story from the old country, which contained an ancient warning, ‘...for you see, it is said that when Hell is full, the dead shall walk the earth, smelling very bad and taking all of the better minimum wage jobs, which will raise the inflation rate unsupported by increased consumerism; which, while having a positive effect on the balance of trade, may impact the renoberation of long-term bond yields’.”

Sorry about that.

On a brighter note, anything big enough to “swallow the Sun”, we’ll see coming from a long way off...

And yet the Vikings have never won a Super Bowl. As a Green Bay fan, this only makes my belief in Heaven and where I will hopefully go at the EOTW, even stronger. :)
