    Well, if it could please wait until I'm nicely snoozing, that'd be appreciated. It better not wait til I get up tomorrow. That would be very rude.

    Bought some plane tickets yesterday for next month, so if the world ends I don't have to pay the credit card bill and if it doesn't I get to go on a trip so it's all good! :cheer:

    It's not at all surprising that the world didn't end - clearly the world as we know it won't end until the Jewish year 6,000, 227 years from now. I for one do not intend to be present for the event, but if any future FSUers come across this thread, you read it here first! :p

    Well, I won't get to take that detour through the universe before I get to my parent's home. There were obviously no pole shift occurrences causing the gravity to fluctuate and no significant solar flares. It's a beautiful sunny day where I live. The temperature is 41 F with a high of around 56 F today. WhooHoo!! :lol:

    You know, I thought this was all very funny. Until I got a phone call from a friend at 1am last night. She's been diagnosed as bipolar (after several other diagnoses) and is in the middle of a crisis. She was telling me that her father (deceased) has been communicating with her telling her that Earth was going to get hit by an asteroid today and that the apocalypse was coming and that she wanted to protect me. She also asked me to change my cell phone plan to Verizon because it was the only one that was going to work after the asteroid hit. Go figure. She was totally manic and then told me she needed to go because the cops were there at her house.

    I obviously couldn't sleep last night. I have spent my morning talking to people in her town (5,000 miles away from where I am right now) trying to get her some help. I've called the police and actually spoke to the counselor in the county jail where she was taken last night.

    These "end-of-days" scenarios can have real consequences for some people. It just never happened to anyone close to me. :(

    12 hours to go till the day ends where I am now. Is anything happening anywhere? Although, I did feel like joining the people who gathered in some spot around Kazakhstan as a haven for the doomsday.:drama:

    I thought there was some town in France where the women don't wear pants (only skirts, you pervs) that was going to be spared.

    Probably too late to get there now, though. ;)

    Maybe we're taking it too literally. There have been some pretty awful things that happened this year. Maybe it's the end of our society, as we know it.

    We had a snowstorm and the freeway was blocked/closed by an overturned semi for about four hours (thankfully nobody hurt). I had to take side roads home and it added about fifteen minutes to my commute. There was even snow drifts to go through :drama: I don't think that constitutes the end of the world, though.

    This is the 2nd Doomsday that I've lived through. The other was in the 1950's. Does this make me one of the "good" people or one of the "bad" people? I get confused.
