Once again I find myself scouring this subforum for truly terrifying evidence of impending global disaster -- because I am a terrible father and I'm
tired of scaring my kids with lies and want something awful and true
for a change -- and, once again I find nothing but bollocks and nonsense
here. So, in an effort to assist my fellow forumketeers with what will and will not pass for "evidence," and thus what should and should not be
posted (imho), I'm going to put the following, simple guide.
1. This is a telescope:
You should all, of course, know this. Unfortunately it is plainly evident that some of you do not know what a telescope looks like. For example, this
is NOT a telescope:
See, I am trying to illustrate that there are some methods of discovering "new" information which do not qualify

choke you to death.
If you want to find new stuff in a sky, get a real telescope and become a real astronomer. If you don't do that, your ideas don't count. It's that
As for Elenin and Nibiru, when 2 of the following 3 media outlets say something credible to the effect that Elenin is a threat or that Nibiru exists

Without any reputable, reasonable, and most of all experienced and educated
people wailing about our collective doom approaching, I have
exactly zero reason to worry about it.
Now, seriously, people. Get on the ball and go find something worth my time
before you make one more post about this nonsense. Time is running
out. Pretty soon my children will learn that zombies, werewolves and the Bogey Man do not exist. Before I start scaring them with Nibiru and Elenin, I
need some real proof
