The End is Nigh

Post by ed » Tue Dec 18, 2018 8:11 pm

This thread is for reporting on events, real or promised, that promise death, destruction, early termination (with or without prejudice) and so on. Points given for vague quotes from "prominent" "Scientists" and other "experts". Extra points for "Experts" with degrees in gender studies.

Concise reporting of the imminent death, impeachment, divorce or indictment of Donald Trump is proper for this site.

I begin with an exemplar: The Polar Vortex
Polar Vortex To Bring Bone-Chilling Cold To Much Of Nation This Winter, Scientists Warn
Judah Cohen, a researcher from Atmospheric and Environmental Research, says a polar vortex will blast across the East Coast later this month and into January, bringing lots of snow and bone-chilling temperatures, The Washington Post reported.

A polar vortex happens when the stratosphere, the upper part of Earth's atmosphere, warms up suddenly. That brings strong winds, which then splits the vortex, drawing cold air from the north into the south.

"When the vortex, perched some 60,000 feet high in the atmosphere, is stable, winter conditions over the United States and Europe tend to be rather ordinary. Winter is still winter, with the normal mix of storms, cold snaps and thaws," the Post writes. "But when the vortex is disrupted, an ordinary winter can suddenly turn severe and memorable for an extended duration. '[It] can affect the entire winter,' Cohen said in an interview."

I was going to say something about the bipolar vortex but now I'm in two minds about it.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Bad news for Abdul's giraffe fetish:
Giraffes just silently went to the list of endangered animals facing extinction

Giraffes have been widely overlooked in conservation practices for a little too long. They just made their entry into the Red List of endangered species.

Hmmmm. Mabye my return is one of the signs of the End Times.

I'm just trying that on to see how it feels.

I feel pretty good. I'm not scared at all. I feel kind of invincible!

You're just another sign of it... a character returns after so long away? Clearly a final season cameo. We've been cancelled.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

TRUE. Rick Springfield went back, after all.

I've never looked up the lyrics before.

Even after reading the lyrics online, the only part I understand is Lenny Bruce is not afraid.

Come to think of it, the lyrics to most REM songs sound like a rambling crack addict.
Such potential!
