Wow, startling words to read in an AP story.
I hope nothing happens to the writer.
The world is supposedly going to end on Friday. With any luck, we can all look forward to spending our last day on earth.
There’s no reason to panic. Some people will say the kids in Newton got off easy!
The world, as we know it is going to end, I don’t pretend to know when. I don’t worry about it as I won’t be here when it happens, neither will my family.
You can laugh at me if you wish but I will either be in the clouds or covered with clods when it happens.
While I’m not ready to start locking people up for it, some of them are quite nuts over this.
I saw a report about a guy who was euthanizing his dogs so they wouldn’t suffer when the world ends.
The detentions come ahead of Friday, Dec. 21
The World hasn’t ended yet
Been around a few years
The Highest probability is that
All things being equal,
it will be here Dec. 22 also
There is a “Not Zero” probability of EOTWAWKI
Quantum mechanics being what it is
AWA various unpredictable Calamities of Low Probability
Not too mention various far more probable individual endings
With 100 year probabilities of approaching 1
Worrying, Arguing, Fear is generally counterproductive
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming
Time to cue up that song by REM that is my tagline!
Maybe the Chinese saw this flash animation video of how the world is going to end.
or you can watch it on GoogTube.
