Rapture? Armageddon? Locusts? Whatever it is, it hasn't hit us yet.
God is pissed. At least we think he's pissed. Actually, we're not really sure if he's pissed or just mildly bummed 'cause of that whole James getting booted off Idol thing. But one thing's for sure – he's putting the big kibosh on good old Earth. This Saturday. Round about dinner time.
So, like, if you're planning a hot date, do it Friday.
Considering that next week at this time we'll have been bounced off the planet by the colossal earthquake that signals the latest End of Days forecast, what better time to look back at all those other world-altering and population-obliterating prognostications and events that, for some odd reason, never materialized.
Enjoy…for your final, precious few days, anyway.
A Cool Grand
If you think the jump from 1999 to 2000 was weird, try transitioning from a year with three digits to one with four. And that wasn't the only issue surrounding January 1, 1000. Indeed, the Apocrypha, essentially a companion piece to the Bible, had long predicted 1000 would be the year of Christ's earthly return. And the destruction of the world. People went kerbonkers, making pilgrimages and fleeing to safety. And then they went back home.
