That enough for ya Ironman?
It'd be cooler if Predators came back. Oh wait, they are! August 6th :green:

Utter bull$h1t. Solar flares are seasonal. It's going to be just like the last time we entered the solar flare high season a few years ago. Maybe a little satellite damage here and there, but that's about it.


If you want something to worry about, I suggest "near earth objects", and gamma ray bursts.

Looking at your log, I think you can just pull them apart with brute force. So, you should stock up on butter. Ammo, not so much.

You can use your fighting skills against them, Pete.

I'll log into their forums and start little flame wars amongst them and disrupt their unity (psych warfare).

Call me Peter, please. :)

I recently had someone ask me, "Are carbs the enemy?" My reply was "No, crabs are the enemy. Carbs are friendly post-workout or in vegetable form." So I'm all for the War Against The Crabs. Shouldn't be hard, they have rip-tabs and taste awesome if you tempura them up soft-shell. Yum, yum.

Another apocalypse, another opportunity to say "I told you so". Very amusing......well provided it doesn't cause me to have to do a bunch of work to ease the fear of morons like Y2K.
for the record, I wasn't serious.

Yea, I know. I was just saying that because a lot of people do think it's real.

my favourite apocalypse theory just now is 2012. The mayan calendar runs out then so that's apparently when the world ends. If those mayans were so smart, where are they now? They should've known not to take those blankets off the conquistadors
