Maybe these sensational headlines are reverse psychology...you get used to them being a bunch of bull, and then when you turn around and see a headline that talks about "blah blah blah" and you go, "oh, just another steaming pile of moneymaking drama," and next thing you know half of California sinks into the sea.
Props for anyone who catches the reference.
Anywho, the point is...maybe it's when all of these headlines come in that you should be ready for something to pop up that really means something. Another way to look at it is, either it's "muddying the waters", providing a bunch of bullpoop that is hiding something we should be looking closer at...or since we're incapable of processing every article, they hide it in plain view by making too much to scan it all.
So instead of telling everyone, "The end is not coming," say, "We don't know, but be ready anyway." Do you see any reason to NOT be worried about the world today?
That's my two bent pennies on the subject.
No, we cannot tell anyone what they should do, but suggestion is just a way of saying, "I recommend this." I don't think this thread was telling us what to do, but explaining how they got from point A to point B, (or C, etc.)
I think it's mostly a matter of discretion, and since the situation is different for everyone, no one can really say, "We should all do this."
