The Czech Constitutional Court is to begin considering what could be the last legal challenge to the ratification of the EU's Lisbon Treaty.
The court will hear a complaint by 17 senators, who say the reform treaty infringes upon Czech sovereignty.
We as humans for 10s of thousands of years have developed a need to survive. Honed our skills to do so, trained our minds and bodies. And actually very suddenly, and quite recently, for many, that danger is just completely gone. I don't think as human beings we've adjusted. And many look for that danger. Why else do people enjoy extreme sports so much, bungie jumping, even skiing. Fun... and exciting and dangerous. Even storm chasing. Heck, even at work every week, people HOPE for a bad storm, and talk about it with excitement when a nastier storm approaches.

I just noticed Fresh Doom.
Here in the midwest we have racked up 6 inches of rain in October and the crops are rotting in the fields.
The weather is expected to remain cool and wet the rest of the week and harvest is already 3-4 weeks behind.
What was expected to be a record harvest may turn out to be a disaster if the farmers cannot get the corn and soybeans out of the ground.
April and May will be warmer and drier than normal, with an early-season hot spell in mid-May.
Summer will be cooler than normal, with slightly below normal rainfall. The hottest periods will be in mid- to late June and mid- and late July.
September and October will be warmer than normal, with below-normal rainfall in the east and above-normal rainfall in the west.

if you mean big as in a nuclear explosion, martial law and dictatorship well then no... some of us on here were thinkin that may happen, still might, however... ther ehave been several huge developments so far that could have far reaching implications way down the road..
Asia pledging to form an EU-style bloc, UN inspectors inspecting the Qom nuke facility that had been until recently secret (to all of us), obama declaring a national health emergency, the clashes on the temple mount, the battle for south waziristan, hundreds dead and wounded in baghdad bombing, capmark going bankrupt, war crimes trial of radavan karadzic and the failed bosnian talks that have put the country on the brink, US adding more debt to the debt and pakistan capturing iranian rev. gaurds on a spec. op. inside pakistan... all of these have the potential to be huge...

The amount of time needed to be able to call those events only "straws" has not passed yet.
Most people called October 7th's stock market dip a failed TWZ prediction on the day it happened but in hindsight I don't see how you could argue the prediction was not right on the money
