Which doomsday rider is it this time?

Well, Friday is right around the corner and, as always, the Discovery Channel is playing up the hype of December 21. I am kind of curious what all the experts are going to say on Saturday.  Of course, they are not the only doomsday prophets that have been wrong.

Here are some links to the latest threat of doom:

Toutatis – a huge asteroid and its Earth flyby – kind of interesting video and pics.

While Toutatis won’t hit us – there is going to be at least one lunar collision.

An employee lost his job warning on-line gamblers that the world will lose electricity for three days starting on December 21 and resume on December 24 – kind of an odd doomsday warning.

Were these murderers of school children influenced by the alleged impending doom?

some Chinese have been selling all they have and giving the money to poor children so that their last days will be happy.

If all of this is getting you down – you can go to the Independent and read why December 21 is not the end of the world.

    This guy had a job warning on=line gamblers that the world will lose electricty for three days starting on December 21?

    Who did he have to blow to get that job?  Is this another Obama boondoggle?

    A friend of mine came up with a great plan.  If you ever meet anyone who really believes the end of the world is coming, offer to buy their house for 10 or 20 thousand that they can blow and have fun with, or use for whatever, before the end.  Have the papers written up so that you take possession the day after they think the world will end.  First, you’ll find out if they really believe the world will end, and then you get to just wait and see who got it right.

    Over the past few weeks, Chinese authorities have detained more than 90 people across seven provinces for spreading rumors that the world is about to end, laying bare the party’s obsession with social stability and maintaining its tight grip on power.
    Tell people in China that the world is about to end – and expect to be arrested in China.
