Well, it looks like we are all about to die. Oh well, such is life. Com’n, you are trying to tell me you haven’t yet heard that the Earth’s poles are going to flip causing the Sun’s rays roast us? (see also the Slashdot story or NASA’s viewpoint). According to Sightings, it’s going to happen on the 05/May/2005 (05/05/05 – coincidence?)
I liked the Slashdot posts:
FYI, when the poles flip, every natural disaster known to man kind happens in a 30 day period…
Floods, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes. You name it.
Good! Might as well get all of them out of the way quickly and have it easy after that!
Of course, the Sun is expected to explode in less than six years – so by 2010 we are all going to be dead (according to the scientists). I’m still not tempted to take out massive loans over a 30 year period though for some inane reason.
