    Does anyone else get the feeling it's close?

    Tsunamis, hurricanes, floods, etc. Plus you can't help feeling uneasy about how many countries have nuclear weapons. If the weather doesn't get us, we'll get ourselves.
     
  2. i personally feel that GREED will be the ultimate demise of mankind - just look to the past - we dont seem to be learning from it so i think we are destined to repeat it. :(

    Nope.

    Armageddon is a religious belief, I don't have any of that.

    What if I didn't use the word 'armageddon' and instead used the term 'demise of mankind'?

    A lot of it is just people building houses in places they shouldn't build houses in, plus making those places even more risky, e.g. deforesting hillsides, channelling rivers, destroying marshes, etc.

    Well, something's got to. Just like any other species, it'll be time for us to go after a while.

    For my money, I'm scared of a nuclear launch and not getting hit.

    We all gotta go sometime - if I'm in the blast radius, I probably won't know what's going on by the time I'm vaporized.

    If I'm in an outlying area, I'll have to live in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where we wear spikes and leather and fight for gasoline. (Only to find out it's sand.) Not the way I want to live, no siree.

  18. Did you see Adult Swim last night? One of the bumps was gas prices. it showed a bunch of gas prices from other countries, the only one I remember was The Netherlands, which was 7.23! :eek:

    The bump concluded with "Try to remember what the rest of the world is paying, before you start to go all road warrior on each other."

    Sorry, I'm pretty upset right now, and have been getting more upset at the "element" of society that is blaming this on the people that live there...

    My apologies.
