    I was just watching a very scholarly video, complete with lots of Bible Scripture and everything, that says May 21 will begin a five-month countdown for the end of life on Earth as we know it. There will be five months of various kinds of torment--fire, floods, famine, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, terrible storms, wars, and chaos--and then. . . .

    The World is scheduled to end on October 21, 2011.

    So. . . . .

    If you decide to believe this is true. . . .

    What will you do with your five months?

    I won't bother to start stockpiling Christmas gifts this year. I would like to get up to see Yellowstone before it's gone.

    I'll go about my life and laugh at you like I did in 2000.

    If I spend all the money I have saved over my entire life in the next 5 months, and the world does not end, do I get a refund?

    That's always a bitch isn't it? I was reading about this bunch that was so convinced the world would end on a specific date back in the 70's, they sold all their belongings, gave the money to the poor to have one last fling, and went to a mountaintop to wait. After about 48 hours they came down, very cold and hungry and broke.

    But the folks who put out this video were VERY convincing. . . . so . . . .

    the end of the world again? Why can't these people predict something useful, like tomorrows largest percent gaining stock?

    But if they predict a stock market gain and it actually gains, they might be indicted for insider trading or something like that.

    I never heard of anybody getting in trouble for predicting the end of the world. :)

    I would finish my kid's treehouse. With work and family stuff taking up all my time, it's still not finished. It's still a pretty cool treehouse, though. It just needs windows, a door and an air conditioner.

    That sounds like a good plan. And you won't have to worry about the kid outgrowing it in five months. :)

    If they predicted the world was going to end, and it actually ended, there would be no one left to indicte them for insider trading. Pretty slick if you ask me.
