    Comet Kahoutek (?), Y2K, 12-21-12 – don’t throw that sign away, you’ll get to use it again!

    @AStarofDestiny: Thanks for that!

    It can be really difficult to find a new purpose and direction in one’s life.

    @The J.A.M.

    I think you said this yesterday. AFAIK 2036 is the Unix zero rollover date but what is 2029 ? (I just can’t be bothered to go look it up … Oh, and it better not be some bulls#!1 American political date … as an Aussie I REALLY don’t care !!)

    2029 is when asteroid Apophis passes within 30,000 km of Earth, with a miniscule possibility of it going through a 400 m wide “keyhole” that will put it on a course to collide with Earth in 2036.

    The second panel, is even more depressing, depending on context.

    World without end, amen, amen.
    Actually the next big thing is the comet of November 2013.
    ,
    Around August 2013 it should be visible through small telescopes or binoculars, becoming visible to the naked eye by late October or early November and remaining so until mid-January 2014. When the comet reaches its perihelion on 28 November it may be less than 1° from the Sun, making it difficult to see against the glare of the Sun. The comet may become extremely bright if it remains intact, probably reaching a negative magnitude. According to Astronomy Now, it may briefly become brighter than the full Moon.

    Hey, never throw a good sign away. That’s a recurrent schtick!

    Sigh. Every 5,126 years it’s the same old thing. Get out the chisels and cut a new calender. misQuote from ‘Free Range’ cartoon.

    The sign is doubly right – that’s an S. Clay Wilson pirate holding it.

    Tatulli had this cartoon standing by just in case.

    Check back in some 4 – 4.5 billion years. Of course, humans will be long gone by then.
