    Oh no!! The world simply cannot end before the series finale of Lost...I have waited far too long for all the answers to have it ripped away by some stupid Armageddon thingy. Priorities, priorities! lol

    So, how many "end of the world"'s have we had now? I've lost count...

    The world better not end...that's the day before my birthday. My kindergarten teacher predicted that I was the anti-christ so if the world does end, it should definitely be on my birthday!

    In that case, I think I will skip the gym and stay home and eat pizza and Ben & Jerry's. But I'm happy the moon will be blocking the sun. It's been freakin' hot as sin here in Arizona.

    They did a skit while singing this song to convince us not to do drugs in Middle School. The skit they did is almost as weird as the video, ha ha ha.

    Yes 2 demons are swallowing the sun so all Hell is breaking loose. If it does, I'm sure it'll be confined to India. Strong beliefs can bring on the self fulfilling prophecies. Meanwhile in America our youth will continue to shoot eachother over drugs, and shoes.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yeah, loved this over-the-top song and her follow-up Holding Out for a Hero. Long live Bonnie Tyler, indeed!

    What sucks is that I won't be able to see it. It'll be on the other side of the world.

    I've only encountered one total solar eclipse in my life.

    "... "During the period of the eclipse, the opposite attracting forces are very, very powerful..."

    The sad thing is that so very many people are taken in by bullcrap like this, masquerading in the language of pseudo-science.

    The movie 2012 will tell us that the Mayans predicted the end of the world will be in 2012. So you may get your wish.

    this makes as much sense as my friends who insist the full moon affects them. "but it's bigger and has more gravitational pull", they say, trying to appeal to my rational brain

    "ummmm, the moon doesn't get bigger during a full moon, silly", i reply

    "oh, then why does it look bigger? hmmmmmm? and since it has more pull it affects the state of the water in my body, like it does the tides in the ocean" they respond, eyes a-glow with starry new-age fervor.

    "helloooooo, you don't stand in one position all day (like the ocean) allowing the moon to pull your liquids half a millimeter to the right. You twist and turn and walk around, and the pull of the moon basically hits you evenly from all sides throughout the day. it's like dancing around in a tanning both to get tan on all sides. besides, the moon does not get bigger on full moon day. jackass. oh, and the g forces at work in plain old walking are greater than the pull of the moon on your sorry fat ass"

    sometimes i'm mean to my stupid friends
