Then they moved on to discuss the episode of South Park they watched the night before on their electrically powered TV.
Glad I'm not a hypocrite.

I am playing with the new toy I got last night. I was impressed with the features and price was decent too. Radio, charger, hand crank, light, siren, etc.

Sorry that you've been let down or dissappointed.
Everyone has freewill, you are not required to go along with anything.
Indeed, people have been predicting the end for thousands of years!
What is different this time is the sheer number of ways it could happen.
Mans ability to destroy himself many times over should make this clear.
Never before has so many problems faced mankind all at the same time.
Ironically, alot of it is his own doing,-or-undoing if I may say so.
We have proven we cannot be trusted to do the right thing for the good of the many. Human nature(devil stuff)prevails on this earth. For now.
Contrary to what everyone on here probably thinks from my avater, I am far from a doom and gloomer. Just a realist aware of the current s*** storm on the horizon. Granted, it may be 50 years from now, but it will catch up to us. We may be delusional if we think technology will somehow save us from our greed, hate and indifference to others not like us.
I was somewhat concerned during Y2K, but I definately am about 2012.
There has only been a couple times I have felt that way. History shows the cuban missle crisis was a close one. I think it is only by grace we are still here. Many serious problems have been averted already. I hope I dont have to list all these problems we face. I already did here:www.abovetopsecret.com...
There are far too many coincidences for this time line.
Thanks for your posts NR and everyone!
P.S. The earth won't be destroyed, only changed.
