Mini black holes will just fizzle and die? The scientists think the risk is too small to warrant serious thought.. Dark matter :rolleyes:

Who cares?

English as tuppence, changing yet changeless as canal water, nestling in green nowhere, armoured and effete, bold flag-bearer, lotus-fed Miss Havishambling, opsimath and eremite, feudal, still reactionary, Rawlinson End.

That's progress and enlightenment for you! At least this time we are threatened by fundamental particles rather than by a p1ssed-off Creator.

 

All through my childhood my parents belonged to a lunatic fringe religion that believed the world was coming to an end within the next eighteen months. (and when the deadline became only six months away, a new deadline would be set by the head honchos - amazing how many times that happened - an interesting case study in faith and gullibility)

 

I have always interpreted impending Armageddon as a good reason for my next fishing trip - do it NOW, before Doomsday overtakes us :) .

 

Are any of the folk who think we have only a month to live selling off their property cheaply?

If so, I'm in the market.

At "church camp" as an 10 year old I was told the end was going to be April 1987. Lunatic fringe. I like that. What a waste of time..

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

I thought that if you wrapped yourself in brown paper and took shelter by lying in the gutter, next to the kerb, you'd be fine.

I used to work with a guy who was of the same lunatic fringe as Vagger's parents and he took great pleasure in telling several of us that the world was going to come to an end, but people of his belief would be saved. I never did work out where they were going to live if the world had ended and he never volunteered that information. If I remember correctly they were all going to rent Luton Town Football ground for that particular day and watch the rest of us perishing from the stands. No doubt they would have asked the management of the club to bill them at a later date. I think that they revised the date before they had finalised to booking and I left that job anyway. Although I don't know what the new date was, it obviously wasn't between October 1977 and July 2008. If they are still waiting for it to happen they are certainly a very patient crowd.

Probably, unless of course a bus ran over you. That could spoil your plans. :D
