Birthday Party, Cheesecake, Jelly Bean, Boom!


The “End of the World” people don’t like to hedge their bets, do they?

A “probably“, “maybe“, or “possibly” tucked into their prediction might make other people think they are still pretty okay normal people.

… “oh it didn’t happen. That’s okay, maybe next time you’ll be right. Wanna go get a few beers?


note: I’ll remain cynical until everything is phonetic … then I’ll be sinical.

note: this site  lists over 200 failed predictions about the End of the World. It’s mildly interesting. 
I try not to be too much of a Bible Thumper Basher, but this site’s main premise seems to be that Jesus’ 2nd coming will have something to do with the End of the World. … but no dates are given for that.
I hope he doesn’t come while I’m still alive because I’d probably be seriously bummed out, embarrassed and saying “no way!” a lot … along with 67% of the Earth’s inhabitants.

triple note: I’m not holding my breath unless there isn’t any oxygen around … or you bet me $5 that I can’t hold it for 2 minutes under water.

quadruple note: the title is a borrowed line from R.E.M‘s “It’s The End Of The World“.

quintuple note: if I have offended anyone, I haven’t meant to. It’s just a topic and I’m sure I’ll be saying something weird about holes in my socks or dandruff or chain letters or rolypolitics tomorrow.


notes to myself #84

Mom is pretty disappointed that all her children don’t share her belief about the hereafter … but she did a good job making us believe in love and an individual’s choice to believe what they want.

  1. It would not be the same if you did not remain your cynical self! Love it! 🙂

  2. God Bless Moms that wise.

  3. You know what they say, there are no athiest in hell. Or is that a fox hole? Or something like that.

    Jesus’ 2nd coming is going to be cool, but I doubt I’ll blog about it. At least I am hoping I don’t…can’t…uh, won’t be around to do it. 😉

    “It’s the End of the World” is the most trite song ever written. No, that was “Happy Shiny People”.

  4. I love the concept of a whole bunch of us standing around mouths agape, saying “no way!” Makes me laugh. Now you can see how warped I am!

  5. I’m glad it’s just a light. I was so worried there for a minute and was wondering who you had connections with to get a photo of the end of the world.

  6. Thanks for the comments.

    Sorry for abandoning the blog for a few days more than usual.

    Doraz: I’m thinking of becoming less cynical and more dubious, misanthropic, contemptuous, mocking, suspicious, scornful, skeptical, derisive, ironic, wry, and doubtful. … just to change things up a bit.

    omawarisan: yes, she was pretty tolerant. None of us renounced anything or switched to a different team though: I’m sure if one of us became a Druid … she’d be looking in a dictionary and narrowing her eyes.

    note: planetross has nothing against Druids … I just made that word up … and then discovered other people made that word up a long time before me.

    Tammy: so foxes believe in the hereafter? hee hee!
    I wish video cameras were around 2000 years ago. Now that would be cool!!!!
    I caught your “atheists” typo this time. hee hee!

    Donald Diddams: I think I might say “No Way! It’s Yahweh!” … just to get a last little wordplay in before whatever happens next.

    S. Le: if the Earth was square would people use the expression “The End of the World“?
