Thread Name: BS: The end of the world is nigh.
Subject: RE: BS: The end of the world is nigh.
There's hardly any decade in the last millenium for which there has not been a prediction of the end of the world. In the last hundred years, there has been an average of about one prediction per year. Last year, I know of two predictions of the end of the world (last time I looked one was still in the web in 2004!), this year I only know of one (for some date in October; if someone is worried when exactly to bid goodbye to the friends and relations, PM me for the exact date).

The next "this time for sure" prediction is for 2012 when for some believers the Maya calendar runs out of numbers and therefore...

One thing seems to be sure to me: when the world comes to its end there'll be someone who has predicted the end for exactly that year.
