Default 65 million people in the US...

...believe "we are in the end times, and that they will see the return of Jesus Christ in their lifetime". That's quite a lot of people.

Just one of the alarming stats from the BBC's article on tomorrow's scheduled firework display.

Actually: "It is quite clear that the Mayan system envisages a new cycle of the calendar beginning on the 22 December 2012," says Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods, and something of a rock star in the world of ancient mysteries enthusiasts.

Personally all I think that means is that Arsenal will beat Wigan, Reading will stuff Man City, and then on Sunday Man U will go down to Swansea.

I could be wrong, though.

What I think will happen is the Gulf embracing human rights ; paying labourers a fair wage, new decent accomadations, prosecuting those who abuse maids & blue collar workers and granting citenzenship to non Muslims who helped build up the region.

.... and Suarez will donate all of his salary to the needy in Africa.
