Hrmm, I'll have to try Jameson since I'm no connoisseur of whiskey save for Jack Daniels. A good cocnac will be nice though as I watch tomorrow pass without any 'incident' .

While it may be impossible to verify existence of god, it is quite easy to check whether the world has ended or not, so I think that incorrect prediction of apocalypse deserves some serious punishment.

Meh, violence is not necessary. A good troll for the lulz is enough for me. I can't wait to hear their excuse after tomorrow passes without incident, besides everyone knows the end of the world is on July 5th, 1998 Praise Bob!

Hrmm, ok and I want to see the reaction (again) when all 'non' believers are happily still living .

Not necessarily, perhaps the doomsday will begin tomorrow in some parallel universe

Yeah, and a correct prediction of apocalypse should be rewarded with a free annual subscription to PlayStation Plus

They most likely will either say that they miscalculated and doomsday will happen X years later. Or they could say it already happened.

That wouldn't be *our* doomsday. (IMO) TO be called a "doomsday" an event should happen in *our* universe, in our time, and on our planet.

Yea but it was supposed to happen so many times already... I'm tired of the world constantly not ending!

I was kinda hoping for mass suicides so they could meet Jesus early ... I guess it was just wishful thinking.

You mean 'ruptured', thats when the pleasure saucers come down from jehovah-1 to take us all true subgenii and all the pink normal people are left behind. That time will come have faith brother, Praise Bob!

PRAISE "BOB"! (I'm sure it mentions in the Book Of The SubGenius that his name should always be within quotation marks)
Is everybody still here? Hands up if you are, hands down if you're not sure where you are.
