Well, he's got till midnight, the way I see it.  Post-Rapture looting can be put off to the 22nd.

His best bet would be to not say anything, not show up to his station, etc., and try to create the illusion that he's vanished off the face of the earth.


Of course, I know we won't be so lucky.

I find it interesting how much media attention is being devoted to this religious nut-bag.  It's rather sad, really.

We could always look at it as a celebration of the fact that we're not dead.  That might put it in a more positive light.

I'm amazed by the human tendency to attach artificial significance or meaning to numbers, whether round numbers like 10, 100, 1000, a million, etc., or repeating numbers like 7 in this case.

If there is a Creator, I think that it is clear that He doesn't favor round numbers.  Heck, just look at Pi. Or e.

I've mentioned this on another thread, but once you start deciding that a number is 'significant', then you start noticing it everywhere.  Heck, if I were to decide that the color orange was significant, then I would tend to start noticing it more.  Even if the number/color didn't naturally occur in a situation, I'd start coming up with ways that it was related.  (In the 'orange' example - the sky is blue, and if you take the other two primary colors and mix them, you get orange.  Ooooh, scary!)

Except the three primary colors are red, blue, and green, and the color opposite the color wheel of blue is yellow >_>

Which is why the Sun looks yellowish on Earth, but white in space.

In light the three primaries are Red, Blue and Green (the additive color wheel), but in pigment they are Red, Blue and Yellow (the subtractive color wheel) ;).  In pigment, blue's complement is orange.  There we go Oniya, orange is everywhere!

edited cause yeah, I can't type.

Which is what I was going with - and yes, I know that light is subtractive and would make more sense to use with anything relating to the color of the sky, but it only goes further to prove that these sort of 'X is everywhere' coincidences can rely on selective fact-usage.

According to the Anti Doomsday Clocks (thank you, Mr. Freud, for that near-typo), L.A. has under 2 hours until the 'new deadline' of 6 PM.  Waiting to see if Mr. Camping is the only one to be raptured.

Hawaii's got an hour to go - unless Camping moves the time again.  Even so, it's only an hour till midnight on a sunny day here.

Great pics, Wyrd, especially the Macho Man one - and you can't help wonder if "know the Lord" means something rather different when it's Biblical knowledge we're talking about - as in "Abraham knew his wife" (not wishing to insult Christians in general here, but then the vast majoirty of Christians don't pretend to know the future as a fact through prophesy).

Pigments are cyan, yellow, and magenta. They are the complements of red, blue, and green respectively.

Isn't it funny that Pi, the mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any circle's circumference to its diameter, is a number as far away from round as you can get?
