The end of the world is near

Why haven't I seen anything about this in the 20 Minutes?

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...cle1630897.ece

End of the world due in nine days ( on September 10th)

It must be true, "The Sun" newspaper is owned by Rupert Murdoch, and he knows everything.

The End of the World is nigh. Again.

Indeed. England will probably lose against the Pumas, and it is quite literally game over...

Re: The end of the world is near

The end of the world is going to be brilliant. I've checked. I don't believe in God - or any of the other fictional characters. However each of those cults believes that in not believing them will result in an eternity in hell.

Now, I've done some reading up on hell, they have whips, chains - and from what I can tell most of the people are running around in the Nuddie. And look at the people that'll be there - you can bet your bottom dollar that the 27 club will be there - and jeez what a band that will be. And can you see the devil skimping on drugs, alcohol and pornography??

Now I know in heaven you do get girl angels, and I have yet to work out whether, with the wings and all, they'd be able to wear bras or not.

But, on balance, I'm taking damnation over harp playing and the possible glimpse of angelic flesh.

i think with wings, you get no bra.
but i still prefer heaven with harps playing, soft clouds, grapes in golden platter and angelic flesh... like a day in the spa, angelic "massage" would also be nice.

How do we know we are not living in a crack of an old wooden kitchen table in another universe? And here we are .... worrying about the end of our world!
Maybe it`s time for that old table to be scrapped/burned/scrubbed/resurfaced?
