#1 So how many times have I survived the End of the World? And I'm talking just this year...

#2 You know the "end is NOT near" when a Kroger coin machine charges .09% to cash in your small change jar, but freely accepts EBT cards at no additional charge for prime rib, fresh produce, and Deli treats.

#3 Well, it's after midnight. Anything happen?
Did the world end and I didn't get the e-mail?
Did supporters of the child rapist off themselves?

#6 It didn't end. It just rebooted.

#7 This rebooted world seems to have the same conditions & cast of characters as the previous one had. This brave new world is, however, deeper in debt than the previous one was.

Well, OTOH Russia and China seem to be doing just fine.

> MASSIVE SOLAR FLARE - the Sun. EARLY/SUDDEN
"RED GIANT" PHASE = SOLAR EXPANSION???
> GLOBAL VOLCANISM = HIMALAYAN SUPER-CALDERA - mostly the Sun [again].
> COMET APOPHIS + GUAM, EARTH-VISIBLE MOON EXPLOSIONS = lack of effec OWG Space Defense because there is reliable OWG because US-World Govts-Perts are still arguing about everything, i.e. "who pays". The International Community mightiest achievemnet is "agreeing to "disagee" hence little or nothing gets done. See also above for SOLAR FLARE/STORM.
> PLANET X/NIBIRU - challenge to the "status quo" of prevailing theories, includ Archaeo-Astronomy, as per our Planetary System.
> 1990'S COMET SHOEMAKER-LEVY 9 BREAKUP + JUPITER IMPACT - did Comet SL9 impact displace surface debris = chunks from Jupiter's surface into its high atmosphere iff not space orbit such as to threaten Earth??? AFAIK, NASA-JPL + UNIVERSITY STAR/SPACE BOYZ HAVE N-O-T ANSWERED THE QUESTION.
> RANDOM/MISCELLANEOUS INCOMING SPACE ROCKS. See for OWG + COMET APOPHIS.
CONSIDERING HOW MANY TIMES NASA + PERTS CALCULATIONS HAVE BEEN WAY OFF, AFAIC THE ABOVE SUBJECT MATTER OR QUESTIONS ARE QUITE VALID.
* "KELLY'S HEROES" > GENERAL CARROL O'CONNOR = "YOU GENTLEMAN ARE THE ONES THATS SUPPOSED TO BE MANAGING/FIGHTING THIS WAR - HELL, YOU DON'T DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE IT IS! WELL I'LL TELL YOU WHERE IT IS - ITS 30 MILES BEYOND WHERE YOU THOUGHT IT WAS ... ... COME ON, NOW, LETS GET THIS ARMY OF MINE [OWG Space Govt] BACK IN THE WAR"!!
