The world will be coming to an end 2 years from tomorrow.
The moon is going to glow blood red as a warning sign about 1 1/2 hours after midnight.
I hope Social Security lasts that long.
Little did a lot of us know that for many of us the world ended Election Day 2008, at least for those of us that are not filty rich.%0D\
I doubt it will R2. I think 2 years from today a lot of us will be homeless and starving.

And not a moment too soon!
Just two more years...make it count!
Great! Just when I''m ready to retire.
I really hope that''s true. It would be bliss if everyone just went to sleep, like Sleeping Beauty. Or we simply ceased to be. %0D\
But it''s likely we''re misinterpreting the Mayan prophecy. 2012 is just the end of one cycle, and the start of a new one.%0D\
Meet the new boss ....
Won''t be fooled again
Quitting my job tomorrow!
Only absolute morons of the lowest order would believe that shit. A fucking calendar cannot "predict" anything. The Mayans could predict the future? Really? REALLY? Oh my.%0D\
How many times have people thought the "world was going to end" in history? Hilarious. People built shelters. Went out into the desert to "wait for the rapture." Huge eye roll. Some people ARE too stupid to live, actually.
"Some people ARE too stupid to live, actually."\
You must mean yourself? I mean, who is stupid enough to take anything written on this thread seriously? Oh, I guess you.
If the Mayans were so prescient they might have figured out a way to preserve their society beyond 1000 A.D.
I didn''t indicate that anyone on this thread actually BELIEVED it, but somebody somewhere does, cookie. Your snark is duly noted.
OP, if the world doesn''t end in two years Im going to give you a good punch in the face.
Count on it bitch!
I''m with R4. Crossing off the days on my calendar until that wonderful day. It should''ve happened at least 100 years ago. That would''ve saved millions of people from a lot of heartache and misery.
I rather believe that it means that in two years some alien creature is arriving and telling us that we''ve been very naughty since our purpose was to be the caretaker of this planet and instead we pillaged and plundered it, but then announces that we get another chance to redeem ourselves we just have to take our clothes off and get a very special cleaning in that spaceship behind it and then be transported to our next planet to colonize it.
I hope there is a "new boss" R7, because the current one really made a mess of things.
Pluto is in Capricorn for the first time 1776!\
You say you want a revolution?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
