Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

I'm getting just as excited as I did in 1987 when all the planets aligned and it was supposed to end then, or in 2000, or maybe I'll get excited next December if the world doesn't end tomorrow.

We are supposed to have thunderstorms tomorrow, but I don't think the world will end if I don't take the boat out as planned. One never knows.

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

Floating on the ocean is heaven enough for me. Besides, I hear there ain't no rum there.

That's kind of you Don. By the way, is the bar well stocked?

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

No, those doomsday prognosticators are wrong. It's supposed to end Saturday at 6PM local time in San Francisco according to this guy...

Could an earthquake really end the world Saturday? - Science Fair: Science and Space News - USATODAY.com

Maybe I will go pig out on some KFC this evening since it won't matter how fat I am tomorrow.

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

Jeez, and I was going to do some topside painting tomorrow. Guess I'll just have to drink beer and bull$&t at the boatyard instead of working to get in the mood.

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

How come there's nothing on NOAA weather about this? It should at least qualify as Maggies drawers.

What time zone would that be? Or will it be a rolling end of the world over a 24 hour period...?

As to the exact time, Someone told me it was going to be on local times, kind of a "rolling Rapture", like robo-calls. Guess God wants to catch everyone at home or sumpin. 6pm. Right in the middle of dinner Go figger.
