In 1974, when i was a 12 year old kid my uncle, who is a jehovah's witness, told me that the world was going to end in 1975. I walked around with this fear in the back of my mind for a year. My grandpa tried to tell me that they had been predicting the end of the world many times and were just plain crazy. But my uncle scared the shit out of me. My Ma was furious at him.

People have been predicting the end of the world in their lifetime since time immemorial. Especially Christians, citing the Bible, go on and on with books like 1986's evangelical best seller "88 Reasons Jesus is Coming Back in '88" sitting on the shelf next to Hal Lindsey's "Countdown to Armageddon" and "2000 the Final Victory" and about 1000 other such religious books all citing 1000 different dates the date the world will end because they calculated and deciphered and were imparted "special knowledge" regarding the Bible prophecies and...all were WRONG about their predictions of the world's end.

Ludicrous.

I think the world is on a downward spiral. We are poisoning and polluting (and believe me, I'm no greenie) the planet at an alarming rate. The irresponsibility that mankind has exhibited in this modern technological age (last 100 years or so) is astounding. From Nuclear problems like Chernobyl & Fukushima and a dozen other nations' rampant poisoning of the ground, water, and air with radiocative toxins that just don't fucking go away and continue to poison the life out of the planet, to corporations all over the world irresponsibly handling hazardous waste and materials. Especially third world shit holes with neo-industrial revolutions. I think we are definitely in trouble as a civilized species, are we smart enough to stop the nosedive?

I have to say that I have no idea when the world will end, not a fucking clue.

Neither does anybody else.

We are so vulnerable out in space. We could be taken out by an asteroid/comet/whatever, gamma ray burst, black hole.... anything really. Everything in the universe wants to kill us. Even our own sun. Big ol' solar flare? Bye bye. The layer of the atmosphere that keeps out the bad rays is pretty thin. Actually, when you look at a picture of the Earth with the atmosphere shown to scale, it's tiny. Looks like almost nothing. I saw a picture once where it reminded me of a bubble on top of the water that was only intact due to surface tension.

Again, it all comes down to fear or love. What guides your thought process? What makes you do the things you do?

If I found out the exact date the world was going to end for real, I wouldn't be spending my last days trying to survive the unsurvivable. I'd be packing as much fun into my last days as possible. I'd like to think I'd have the stones to go out like Woody Harrelson in '2012'. Facing it head on.

He said he was at work.

I guess the Wendy's he sleeps behind got busy.

When the drive through slows down, less people will be giving him change as they pull out, and he'll be back on.

It was nice, seeing you and SOS on the same side of the fence for a change.

Made for a nice fap.

I felt like I had a family again.

yes, every now and then we get the hots for each other. It's a love/hate relationship. Which is the best kind by the way. grin.gif

Yes we ARE vulnerable. We need to get the fuck off this rock asap. I wish all the money put into the current wars, the bailouts, the environment etc etc was put into colonizing space. All of the answers to all of our most serious problems are in the sky. From endless energy to not being trapped on an island that we know will eventually go under, to endless raw materials and natural resources.

What boggles my fucking mind is that as a species we seem more concerned with the survival of the ecosystem we currently inhabit than with the survival of our own species. In evolutionary terms that kind of cultural thing is PATHOLOGICAL.

Two really good things:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining_...s,_and_Planets

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-205_162-...eo-larry-page/

This second thing is huge. Asteroid mining is the first step. If google pulls this off, and they should be able to, they will have exponentially expanding wealth beyond anything the world has so far seen.
