Just wondered how everyone is doing in the US? Are you still there? According to familyradio.com, the World was due to come to an end at 6.30 PM on 21 May, 2011. Hope you all didn't sell up and go on a binge.

I haven't been 'there' for a long time now....

But I am still 'here'!

My current version of reality is telling me the temperature is rising inexorably... not the precursor to the world blowing up just yet - simply evidence that Arizona, where I live, is still 'here'.

Can't speak for the rest of the world...

... and pretty sure I saw Doctor Who around these parts recently... so anything could have happened, and probably did!

Cheers

No we are all still here, unless most of us are heathens We wouldn't notice who had been raptured in that case.

I was at the drive thru at McDonalds at that moment... and I was thinking to myself how appropriate it would have been if things went all to hell just as I was getting my Big Mac and fries.

He now says he mis-calculated but his 'end of the world' date of October 21st still stands.

Something to look forward to then.

Yep still here as well. I was going to tell my boss to stuff it but changed my mind at the last minute. According to TV its now been rescheduled for october...will Ladbrokes give odds or do I just have to stare into my beerglass. Apparently (according to a religious caller at my house) I'M going straight downstairs as I don't attend his church. I told him i would save him a seat. The security officer at our building found some keys from a Mercedes... Did I miss the Rapture??

Well I suppose if you throw enough eggs at enough coconuts you're bound to win a fish eventually . . .

There's a good reason you never hear the world is going to end on April 1, isn't there?

The end of the world was always October. So has the tribulation been cancelled? We just go straight to the end?
