    Thursday, May 15, 2003, was to be the day the earth's poles reversed, and 90 percent of the world's population would die. This was to have been caused by a close passing of a rogue planet (yes Rogue would totally suck then). As you probably can tell, this did not occur. A person who goes by "Pole Shift" has been hosting an AOL chat room called "Pole shift questions" for several years, in which he/she has consistently propounded this theory. His/her data source is a web site called www.zetatalk.com. I'm trying to get ahold of him/her to discuss what went wrong, and perhaps get a revised date for what ultimately would amount to the end of the world as we know it.

    More on this later. I'll get back to you on this.

    Hmmm....maybe your part of the country was immune or something. I was sitting around over at the mall waiting for this to happen so's I could pick through some dead folks pockets and sure enough...90% and now I'm 63 bucks richer. Woohoo! Thanks, Pole Shift!

    Speaking of rifling through dead folks stuff (since we were all speaking of that) my fiance and I were picking out our wedding bands last week and when we walked in there was a kind of creepy guy finishing some business with the jeweller. Not sure what was creepy about him but you'd know it if you saw it. Anyway we were talking about buying and selling gold and jewelry and the kind of stuff people bring in and he says "Check this out." and pours these chunks of kind of dirty looking gold out onto the counter just as I started to touch one I realized what they were...old gold tooth caps. I kind of recoiled with a "Uugggh!" and he said that the creepy guy brings those in every week. His theory is that the guy is a mortician but he doesn't ask. :rolleyes: Weirdness.

    Mr. Munji, thank you so much. If you hadn't posted this, I wouldn't have known about the doom I experienced on the 13th....


    :rolleyes:


    ....I must be in denial still, I just mowed my now non-existant lawn, and I was most likely dead.

    Yeah they ARE buying. That was why the jeweller had them. They buy any kinda gold basically I guess! I didn't really make that clear that the creepy guy was gone by this time I suppose.

    and typing into that other figmant of your imagination sitting on your desk......

    The thing that gets me about these doomsday cults is how incredible disappointed that are when they don't drop dead???????

    Yeah, they're almost as incredibly disappointed as I am that they didn't drop dead...

    Wait...Why would 90% of the population die?
     
  17. Ahh horesecrap, I sent them all my money too. :(
     
  18. Damn it, where is that blasted apocalypse chart when I need it.

    Oh, here it is. Make of it what you will.

    Oh yes, and the noble Tom reasons that a magnetic pole shift would either

    a) Kill you instantly when you fly towards the end of the Earth

    Or

    b) Go unnoticed.

    I'm in a bit of a bad mood today. I printed this chart and taped it to the wall above my desk at work. Everyone's avoiding me now - mission acomplished.
