Re: 26 Sept 2011 - End of days!!

I notice on his website he's still looking for donations and funding via Mastercard/Visa/Amex etc so he obviously believes there is enough time to process the payments?

Also you can still order his publications, of which I have two queries:

a. Which courier is he using to reach such speedy lead times on book delivery if I order today, to want to read about the end of the world by this evening?
b. Why would he still want payment for his books if I order on line? I mean, he can't be too worried about clearing his overdraft, surely?

Well, just in case, I've got the ground beef defrosting for dinner tonight.

On the other hand, if things ARE ending, I can let the laundry sit, right? If it is, I just hope it waits until hubby gets home from work so that we'll be together. ♥

Re: 26 Sept 2011 - End of days!!

I found his lecture to be quite boring and who's to say when or where disasters come......but I am a firm believer that Mother Earth has repeatedly shook us off like a bad case of fleas and it would be wise to just be vigilant and prepared for any and all disasters if at all possible.

I'm not opposed to the notion that the earth's climate can change drastically in a blink of an eye. I bet the poor wooly mammoth eating buttercups when flash frozen didn't think it would happen to him.

And I certainly wouldn't trust the government if anything were to happen. The amount of chaos on the streets would be uncontrollable in certain situations and would prompt me to take matters into my own hands. Plus I just read that our emergency agency in the US, FEMA, is due to run out of money tomorrow. Way to go US politicians.

Re: 26 Sept 2011 - End of days!!

Isn't this the same guy that predicted it back in (roughly) May? And before than in about 1990?

Perhaps if he keeps trying often enough he might eventually get it right.

Re: 26 Sept 2011 - End of days!!

Wowsers, we will be saying goodbye to: New Zealand, Japan, Indonesia, China, Korea (presumably North & South), Russia as well as the west coast of America by the end of the day.

We might be spared for a few more days in these parts but make sure to stay in doors, or the after effects of the "cosmic sonic shock waves" will fry us alive like "Vampires"!!

Hmm, looks like our swiss bomb shelters may come in very handy indeed over the coming few weeks. I have a very busy few hours ahead of me: find a handyman to make space in shelter; stock up on canned food, water etc; lots and lots of chocolate (for bartering with of course), txt husband, family & friends on impending armageddon; oh yes i must make a generous donation to this awesome "truth giver" before hard cash is a thing of the past. That should be plenty to get me started.

And, if I was working with a bunch of morons (like many posts here seem to suggest). I would definitely take the opportunity TODAY to derive sweet satisfaction in telling them all where to go, divulge any known embarrassing secrets, tell the boss to go ef him/herself and quit in style! Go for it peeps (you should obviously mail them later and let them know that the world as we know it is about to end - you wouldn't want that on your conscience now would you! Also you would redeem yourself and have them indebted to you later when knowing a few Swiss locals could come in very handy).

Wow, I'm thinking very long and hard about all this.

Thanks for the heads up OP, you're a life saver.

Possibly because of the all the scary concentration camps they've been building to house resistors of the NWO when Marshall Law comes in?



Of course this couldn't be for real, could it? Another whack job conspiracy theory right? Well hopefully, but it's unfortunate that history often teaches us that "truth is stranger than fiction".

Everyone seems to be fussing about this


So, let's assume this is actually true, what will everyone off you be doing in the last day of life?
I'll have a last espresso then.

The only thing I truly wonder about is why don't get such people locked up and looked after in some psychiatric institution.
I mean people get locked up for lesser nonsense than this.
