    Almost every family dinner my father-in-law (a double doctorate high energy physicist) brings up the fact that the sun will expand and swallow up the earth in 3 billion years. He thinks we should start planning NOW what is to be done about it. I think that if the earth (or mankind in some form) is still around then, we will have come up with some ideas, so I don't lose sleep over it. He may be joking, but he is so serious about it that sometimes I wonder.

    According to the Mayans, this will be the end of an era.
    As Sonja Henie's era finally ended...or Katarina Witt's, or ...
    The end of the World will be when Plushenko will definitely retire.
    Merry Christmas everyone ! :40beers:

    I vote black hole , and see it going down thusly: Chris Daughtrey's bandmates quit, leaving him a solo act. Chad Kroeger's bandmates also quit, leaving Chad and Chris to form an uholy duo which will probably be named Daughtryback or Nickeldaugh. This causes so much suckiness that the entire world is drawn into a black hole with the dropping of their joint CD entitled I would change my name and cut my hair and wear a wallet on a chain but I wouldn't cut my hair because I'm bald but I will change my name.

    2 days to go and looks like the Zombies are the winners of the poll. If it is to be a Zombie apocalypse, then here is a survival guide......

    One can certainly make a sound argument that "mass insanity" has already taken place. :(

    Well, in three and a half hours, it will be the 21st in Australia.

    The only question is, WHAT TIME on the 21st? Enquiring minds want to know so that I know if I need to bother to get up.

    Hmmm, approximately 12 hours left where I live; maybe I should go ahead and eat that cheesecake I prepared for the Christmas holidays-I'd really, really hate to see a good cheesecake go to waste... ;)

    On another note, I definitely saw zombies this morning, but that's a pretty normal scenario in my morning Bikram yoga class... :coffee:

    Wishing everyone a safe and joyful end-of-world! :puppet:

    Well I am still frickin here at work. No end of world yet.

    I kind of feel sorry for the poor idiots who really believe it is going to happen. Poor gullible fools.

    Well, 7:30pm and no end of the world.

    Gorgeous day here. Blue sky, tons of sunshine, warm - a bit windy now though...

    Well, of COURSE it didn't end. Dikembe Mutombo saved us all.

    (as an explanation - http://www.oldspicesavestheworld.com/ ... most ridiculous game ever. Well, maybe not. There is also the game that allows you to do a tour of Pyongyang. :lol: )
