    How'd You Celebrate the End of the World?

    As most of you know, certain religious fundamentalists claimed that today, May 21, 2011, would see the end of the world - right about dinner time (not sure how they came up with that estimate...). To commemorate this momentous non-event, I thought I'd start this thread so we could all share our "apocalyptic adventures!"
    What'd I do? Well, after emptying the clean dishes from our dishwasher, I loaded a bottle of dishwasher-cleaning fluid into the thing and ran it through a cycle (stuff's supposed to get all the hidden gunk out of your dishwasher's system so your dishes will get clean). Then I mopped the floor in the first-floor bathroom for Mom after her shoulder started aching. Then I cleaned out the trunk of my car for Marcon (trip's coming up next weekend!); after which I went off to Borders to use a 50% off coupon good only this weekend. Then I ran my car through a car wash, and hurried home for dinner - my brother grilled steaks for us.
    That's how I celebrated the end of the world. What'd you guys do?:P
    The floor's now open....

    RESTED!!!!!!..................for once, I have a day off. Seems appropriate for the day the world ends. Gotta love the hubris of such idiots. It would be so insipidly tragic if it weren't entertaining. Now, let's see.....the next Armageddon date is what, December 21, 2012 according to the Mayans? (Winter Solstice, that's appropriate.)

    Getting my *** handed to me in SC2 placer leagues, lol...

    1st round: Terran playing dude set up shop right outside my base and I didn't even notice until he had siege tanks there... oi, that wasn't pretty
    2nd round: Dude freaking Zealot/Stalker rushed me
    3rd Round: Zerg rush. Woulda stopped it to if I didn't lift off my barracks to put a bunker there at the WORST possible time.
    4th Round: Won that; dude went 'toss and once we smackdowned as he went all in I sent in my force and my large group of Vikings (which I gathered to counter his Void Ray rush mixed in with a bunch of other units like Carriers) I gave them one order:
    YOU MUST DESTROY ADDITIONAL PYLONS
    5th Round: Another 'toss, this time he nailed my expansion while I was setting up my wall. By that time he already expanded too much, oi vey...

    Blasted Vogons, probably got the wrong planet, again....

    If I'd have known you had a day off, I might have put more credence in this Apocalypse stuff.... , surely a sign of the End Times (TM).

    The funny thing about the Mayan calender thing is that I once asked an actual Mayan (he was a shop keeper in a small town down in Mexico) what he thought would happen when they got to the end of the calender (we had a couple of hippie types in the field crew, who were already concerned about this). He smiled, reached into a drawer and pulled out the next year's calender that he had recently gotten from the local beer distributer and hung it up over the current calender that was on the wall.

    Alas, this time I wasn't able to score bargain basement prices on MREs and other camping items, as I did from the neighbor who had stocked his garage full in anticipation of Y2K.

    Kickball with hungover, out of shape friends, frozen yogurt, and won $50 gift certificate. Had planned on looting had there been an actual rapture.

    Sorry, Cloud......:P....I'm not trying to make fun, but it was just too funny, actually in two different ways.

    First, it's actually 'False Prophet', which BTW I entirely agree.
    But I like the 'False Profit' thing too, because God only knowns how many people this screwball has ripped off.

    PostScript: BTW, this nut spent the "Day of Rapture" in a motel room somewhere nobody could contact him. He has since come out and said he had miscalculated and that the actual date of Rapture will be October 21, 2011............ Some people will never learn.....

    Maybe we should all send him some Halloween candy on the 31st?
    And BTW, how do those charlatans come up with the dates for these supposed Apocalyptic events? Is it something like the way astrologers "cast their horoscopes?" I'm actually curious as to what their methods are....
