    I had one of these guys come up to me at the movie theater yesterday. As he approached, I turned to my wife and said, “you want to see someone who’s going to feel really stupid come Sunday?”The guy decided to walk on by us instead.

    I love hearing why the End of the World doesn’t happen. It’s always so logical. Bet it involves computers.

    I wonder what the people who believe this are going to be doing on Friday night? Probably not going to be partying.I wish they would give us a specific time, so my heathen friends and I could sit on the porch with beer and snacks and watch the fireworks.

    Predictions like this have been going on for more than just years. To get an idea of how long, have a look at Jonathan Kirsch’s book “A History of the End of the World”. Very eye opening!

    Have him hand over the title to the car as well, so he can’t say you stole it on Sunday morning.

    As someone who has spent a career in empirical testing, I’m giggling with an open mind.

    The world can’t end yet. The last book of Robert Jordan’s ‘The Wheel of Time’ won’t be released until some time in 2012. It’s book 14 and I’ve been reading them since 2000! The world can’t end just yet.

    Lessee, the “first” rapture was to come in 1854. Then another was to occur in 1856. Excuse me if I don’t hold my breath…

    And just in case we make it past the end of time, the GOP is eyeballing Peter King (NY3) for a Presidential run in November 2012, so we can enjoy $10 per gallon gas nationwide.

    Every day is The End Of The World (As We Know It), because tomorrow will always bring something new and unknown. It’s the flip-side of “Today is the First Day of the Rest of your Life.”.Gotta run. Mimi Rogers is waiting for me in the desert (actually, she’s waiting for David Duchovny, but he ain’t going to show). Then we’re off to dinner at MILLIWAYS!

    I remember an episode of the Simpson when Homer calculated the Rapture. At the appointed hour, he kept saying “Wait a minute! Wait a minute!”

    “…Jesus… told the disciples it would happen in their lifetime.” Yeah, but he certainly did a fine CYA with that other spiel about eternal life.

    From sources I cannot name at this time, I happen to know that the rapture will indeed occur on May 21st 2011. Naysayers, will regret their snide remarks. BELIEVE IT!On May 25th commemorative T-Shirts will be available for $30 each at www.endtimesarehere.scam. Color choices will be blood red and dead black. Text options are limited to “I survived The Rapture and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt” and “Who am I, Where am I, Who are You?”

    We were planning to go to a piano concert at my church on Sunday. Dang, I was really looking forward to it! Oh, well, at least my wife doesn’t have to bake cookies.
