'End of the world', as though the Divine has a tacky sense of humour for timing...

This ending quote got me thinking:
Quote
Unless of course anyone notices the numerological significance of “Fox”. As one contributor to Arianna Huffington’s blog pointed out last week, F is the sixth letter of the alphabet, O is the 15th letter (1+5=6) and X is the 24th letter (2+4=6). Could Fox be the studio of the Beast?
There are slightly more than 4.1 births per second worldwide, so this means that there will be approximately 358,522 of such Demon-spawn born on 6 June.  (Source: U.S. Census Bureau, International Data Base)

Actually, that might be a good plot: demonspawn are born on an unholy day, and start wreaking havok.

well...here we are.

The fortold date of our destruction.

Nothings happened, Weather here looks pretty nice.

Two months of incessant end of the world-mongering, pocket satanism, and vague notions of belonging to a greater evil organization...where are the fireworks Dark-Lord?

I'm dissapointed.

Still looking good.


Actually, there seems to be one thing that has come to an end... The Call of Captain-thulhu. Over a week no post. I... start to feel unsure. What if it is just the beginning?  :shock:

I am rather enjoying the end of the world. Ever since civilization collapsed the weather has been rather cheery here.

Grasafrasa, civilization collapsed and I was stuck out in the middle of nowhere watching people not drown.
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

Now that's an interesting point - as the end of the world can happen only _once_ in history, it is quite an attraction.

If I just have invested into those merchandising thingies, I would be rich and... oh wait. Got to think that over yet.

Remind me again just how long did the count down to 6/6/06 go on ???
And you say we can't let anything go.

Would that make you the pot or the kettle?
