    Start checking eyes for vertical pupils. And don't have sex with them unless you want a lizardbaby.

    It just so darn interesting what's happening on and above this planet right now.

    BIG and many earthquakes, wacky weather (but that's debatable) and now fireballs streaking through the sky.

    Cool!

    :eek: COOL! I wish it was a UFO. I know one needs to be careful what one wishes for, but it would be so amazing to have alien contact.

    Unless they're mean of course. :drama:

    My pastor was saying just this Sunday that because of that verse in the New Testament that says "No one knows the day or hour," December 21, 2012 is the one day on which we can be sure the world WON'T end. :lol:

    Wow, that's ominous and yet, quite beautiful.

    How come other places have these great astrological phenomenons? Last year's solar eclipse was on the other side of the world. :lol:
