    We welcome all of you previous AOL members, that have joined today. But what in the hell happened over there at AOL? Did they get a "government bailout" or did they "sellout"? ... if they did by who and/or whom and/or whatever:confused:

    From what I read in another thread, they are closing down the threads possibly on October 31 and going with a blog format.

    We were raptured here. Our home world is about to be destroyed...
