    We're all doomed as doomed can be as Edward Mayhoff "Ed" Grimley would assure us, and I therefore wanted to share one of my favorite websites with you.

    http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/index2.php

    That's the real-time disaster monitoring interactive map of the entire world. From Earth-approaching objects to super volcanoes, from earthquakes and tsunamis to epidemics and HAZMAT spills, this site has it all! Plus, it's updated every five minutes, so you won't miss out on your imminent doom.

    Just click on a map icon and for detailed specifics, you can then click "Description" at the top of the Event Summary page that opens. Or, you can just scan down the front page by category and check on things. I see that we have some activity with a super volcano on New Zealand's north island today. And there's an epidemic of hand, foot, and mouth disease underway up in West Virginia. If those particular events don't interest you, there's something for everybody, just keep looking.

    I figure this should cheer everyone up. Look at it this way; you're still alive, even with all this stuff going on in the world! Enjoy! :D

    I heard about the ozone and ocean and the air and the number of species that become extinct every day, , and the nuclear polution

    Nobody gets out alive. As the famous philosopher, Roseanne Roseannadanna said, "It just goes to show ya, if it ain't one thing, it's another". :eek:

    I heard about the ozone and ocean and the air and the number of species that become extinct every day, and the nuclear polution and how through the abuse of antibiotics we have developed super resistant species of germs , that we have no defense against and the list goes on and on and on
    however I 'm way ahead of the game, = cancer patient treated with heavy side affect , no sweat , the glass is full, and I don't have to worry about "how much time" in that the future looks real rosey from here , for me at least when the **** really hits the fan, I will be well on my way , heading back down the trail to the basics of carbon cycle.

    I'm one of those who:

    Didn't want the ultra sound tech to tell me the gender of the future kid.

    Instead of becoming one of those doomsday preppers I bought two really good bullets for my wife and me. I'm going to tell her about em' someday...unless doom impends prior to that time.

    Practiced getting my seat belt off in case the plane I'm riding in has engine or equipment failure. What a great opportunity to experience weightlessness...at least for a few minutes.

    That website seems really useless to guys like me...

    Technically, the cosmos is doomed too. The good news is that it'll take a while, several billion years, for the end of our non-eternal universe to come. No legacies left. All 'achievements' were futile and false. No one left to recognize them for validation. Nothing goes back to null. The end.

    Have a good day!!

    Well, if a grocery store has to remind you(or themselves), with a great big sign, that what they sell really IS food.............:D

    I once saw cheese slices labeled as "processed cheese food". Processed Cheese would be enough. If you have to put the word "food" on a package of food to tell me that, technically, I CAN eat it, I probably SHOULDN'T eat it...........

    Which leads us to the question, "What percentage of cheese and what percentage of whiz are actually in Cheez Whiz?"

    I don't have children, so as long as everything lasts another 30 years or so, I'm okay. The rest of you youngsters are on your own.

    Sort of disappointed. Everywhere else has major disasters and all we have in Oz is a measles outbreak in Darwin.

    Nice website. Yup, I made a decision to get out of the way 20 years ago. I'm ready, let 'er rip.:cool:

    I was disappointed that the 2000 New Years Eve computer issue didn't create havoc.:D

    The world economy keeps surviving on the pyramid scheme. Gotta end someday I'm thinkin'.

    In reality though, I think we need an asteroid to put us out of our misery and push the reset button.:twisted:

    I wasn't. I was the y2k coordinator for a $72B company and I blew it off because I didn't expect anything to happen.

    I got a plaque.

    There's something ironic about a vaccinatable outbreak in a town called Darwin.
