I wonder if National Weather Service gone too far into the Apocalypse thing, naming a winter storm Draco, Latin for dragon.


http://suite101.com/article/observing-the-constellation-draco-a40034


I know of the constellation, but the Weather Channel actually is claiming they were naming it after the Greek lawgiver.
Wait til y'all check this out
http://www.weather.com/news/winter-storm-names-20121001

Yes, a winter storm could be named Gandolf, Q, or Orko!


Orko as in the Orko from he-man?


The Weather Channel is claiming Orko, as in the Basque thunder god, but really how many people would even think that there was even a Basque thunder god named Orko? We all will be thinking of He-Man if Orko hits!


You're right I certainly didn't know there was a Basque thunder god.


That Weather Channel list has so many unintentional jokes in it. Really, Q for a NYC subway line, not say a James Bond invention or a demigod-like being in Star Trek, in a list of historical people and mythological/literary characters? OK?

I want to hear about the people who blew their life savings because they seriously thought we'd all die. They've gotta be feeling like idiots about now.

Here's one such case:

http://www.sodahead.com/living/would-you-blow-your-life-savings-to-escape-the-alleged-apocalypse-on-december-212012/question-3354819/

Spent his life savings (equalling $160,000) building a boat that was barely sea-worthy.

Motto: ""Close your mouth and open your mind.""
Weapon: Gatling Cannon
A guy I know texted one of our mutual friends and said "Hey, I heard Australia just collapsed into the ocean when they hit the 21st." He went to an appointment and when he checked his phone afterward there were five frantic messages to the tone of "OH MY GOD SERIOUSLY?"
I'm actually more surprised he didn't blow everything considering how gullible he is.

But really, if the Mayans could "predict the future" they would have been able to see the threats to their society, work around it, and live happily ever after. But there are no Mayans now, are there?
Please note: If you think I may be joking, I probably am.

I've heard enough stupid stories about stupid idiots blowing everything off for the Rapture.
I don't think I can survive another.

For some reason, the majority seems to consist of US citizens. >:oP

I've never tastes MRE's myself, but I've heard that clam chowder is the worst of the lot.

BTW, since we're on the topic of the apocalypse, I'm now hearing theories that the Korean rapper Psy (yeah, that Gangnam Style guy) is the prophesied horseman of doom in Nostradamus' writings--something about a prancing horse completing the nine circles.

Are these people really that looking forward to watching the world burn? I'm pretty indifferent about the world's survival, personally. I just rather it not be destroyed while I'm still living in it.

I know, right? Also they're called Mayas, there's no N. Just another popular misconception about them, along with the misconception that their civilization ended, and that they were able to predict the end of the world.

Well, I doubt they'll be bothering the Maya for a while. Doomsday morons are now saying the Korean rapper Psy is the prophesied horseman in Nostradamus' predictions--something about a prancing horse and the nine circles representing his one billion views in youtube.

I guess he'll spreading leg injuries and hernias instead of pestilence, plague or war.

Lada Gaga, Bieber, and various other no talents is a better sign of the apocalypse (psy stinks too!). :D At least, this Psy one is a pure hoax, not a mere misunderstanding.

Oh, there's no need for apocalypse if poisonous or bad food is considered.

In my area there was a case in november where a burger restaurant had served burgers with worms in the salad.
And a little bit after that a chain of shops sold salmon which also had worms in it.

And I myself happened to buy a bag of crab-sticks which had also gone sour.

What a waste of good food before december...
