    ...will be when the the world is destroyed!!!
    Start preparing now. Let's just hope the continent
    is Antartica.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/2147879.stm

    I'll be 36 (one month before my 37th birthday).
    Between now and then, I hope to:

    Have a Ph.D in something.
    Become a millionaire.
    Get married.

    That's all...

    Anyway, I think I remember hearing about an
    asteroid that passed between the moon and earth
    a few months ago. Anybody (adrianxy?) know
    anything about this?


    I can never remember the two letters that come
    after adrian's name. Sorry if I got them wrong.

    I read on slashdot this morning that an asteroid several kilometers wide could possibly smash into the earth around the year 2019... but they aren't making any hard and fast speculations just yet... they still haven't figured out the exact orbit of it. The chances of it happening are still smaller than being run over by a camel, the report said.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    After reading several articles from that page and attempting to form some type of logical thought on that subject that would eventually lead to me having something interesting to post I came up with this ........ That sucks.

    Wasn't their calendar off by a few hours or
    something? Anyway, yeah... See, that calendar
    combined with this news... It's going to
    happen. You all are screwed...

    Not me, I'm going to buy some land on the moon
    and retire there in a few years.

    I think the Aztec calendar ends 2012... I can't
    remember. It was on the Series Finale of The
    X-Files, though. Either way, it's close enough.

    the chances of an asteroid hitting earth are astronomical (no pun intended).

    Far to early to tell.

    Hmm well it's the most acurte calender. It was created a few thousand years ago, and is not that far off.

    Oh and own the moon already.

    Yeah it does. Look up "A Certain Shade of Green" by Incubus. Heh, that's how I remembered.

    You people are being too optimistic. We're all
    going to die. You have to face that. Start
    preparing now...

    Yeah, I don't want to die either. But considering
    I only have 17 years left (as oppose to the 150
    I would otherwise have), I'm going to start
    living life to it's fullest. "Life's a gift, and
    I don't intend to waste it." (That was from
    TITANIC; the best movie ever)...

    Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some living
    to do... ::turns on Gamecube::

    Yup In fact, tomorrow is an uncertainty, so you have to live accordingly...
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.
