Today is the end of the world and my friends are still fooling around

I received an e-mail from Kerrendor (mass mailed to my close group of friends) today:

From: Kerrendor
Date: Wednesday, September 10, 2008
Subject: It’s nice knowing you

If the world ends today, I just wanna tell you guys that:


The e-mail came with links to two articles announcing that some scientists are going to destory Earth today (or tomorrow depending on time zone conversion):

The end of the world is nigh . . . or is that nay?

Will the World End on Sept. 10, 2008 and not 2012?

And here’s the discussion that followed:

From Unker Kell:

No worries yet, today they are only going to attempt the first circulation of a beam through the entire collider. High energy collisions will only occur on 21 October.

So, we have til 21 October to prepare for the end of the world.

From The Goonfather:

Well, it was also mentioned that you won’t see an immediate effect. Strange occurrences will start happening 4 years later.

Hopefully Prison Break Season 2 will be released on Blu-ray by then. [Ref]

From Wang Wang:


THE WORLD COMING TO AN END ON MY BIRTHDAY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

From Erwin:

Good rite, can save money on Bday celebrations.

From The Goonfather:

Save $ for farks? like as if u can still find ATM to withdraw money after.

I’m sure gonna miss my friends when the world ends.

It’s nice knowing you, too!
