The Rapture (in blue) beats “World End May 21″ (red)  — at least on Google Trends. What chance did Harold Camping’s end of days have versus 2000 years of Armageddon fear mongering?

The Rapture folk know the first rule of forecasting — hence the indefinite date for the World’s end versus getting too specific.

Coming on (12/21/12) — The Mayans (or not) !

    Good morning all, well today @ 6pm the world is supposed to come to an end. Just in case it does, I would like to say to my friends, family and partners in crime, and you no who the partners in crime are:-) that if life were any better, it would be a sin. It has been a pleasure knowing all of you and the many things we have accomplished and had fun doing together.

    If for some strange reason the world does not come to an end, I will be at the Yankee game tonight watching the Mets kick the crap out of the Yankees. And yes I will continue to live life to the fullest with my friends, family and especially my partners in crime.

    Regards,

    Jeff

    if you’re reading this, it means that the world hasn’t ended, and that I will be Snapping Into A Slim Jim in honor of the late Macho Man Randy Savage

    Barry – can you please be meaner to Camping & Co? This guy needs to be exposed as the charlatan he is, ridiculed, and hopefully his acolytes will wake up and see the real light.

    I mean, I guess he doesn’t need to be exposed to SENSIBLE people, who already know this, but…

    you can blame blame blame me to some extent .. NoCash for Labor to get stuff** vs. FMCitBPtP* .. all these years and no SOP from me .. you wouldn’t listen anyway***

    the trouble with capitalism is its not happy with equilibrium .. ie you all tear apart Microsoft for not coming up with the next big thing that boosts market share price .. why so ie to cash out .. so we resort to M&A as the growth mechanism for cash out and throw people on the street to come up with the next big thing or die .. among others that is tearing up the fabric in this system of highly engineered systems … really I mean – besides enough for all to go around – what more do you, us, me humans want?

    **work to get stuff has its issues without the tokens .. steak/hamburger/rice .. windows & doors open and 72 degree house temp .. gas to get to Paris and back from Peoria

    I’d be remiss to not add “come up with the next big thing or die” has come up with some great stuff over the years
