Re: We missed it!

It has the same letters as my name and the same amount of spaces, so tell me, bobbym; who else could it be?

Re: We missed it!

Do you remember Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie? Same number of letters and begins with T and ends with E.

But I said the quote. It's highly unlikely what I said was in that.

Hi Tigeree;

But you admit that T_ _ _ _ _ E could be Tootsie.

Fine. You win. But, just, why? Why would you do that? Why did you? It's just the most randomest thing ever.

Re: We missed it!

Random is my middle name. Random number generation used to be a favorite subject of mine. Just wanted to show you that you cannot pin me down. When you say up, I think down, When you think over, I say under.

Re: We missed it!

So I've noticed. Not that I was trying. And I thought my friends at work were random. Bobby Random M, sounds random enough.

Re: We missed it!

People aren't as random as you think. But I think you know that already. They are just interacting with you. So, in some sense you are causing the random behavior that you observe in them. This lends a measure of predictability to their actions.

Re: We missed it!

Thank you for that, bobby. Just because I don't like socializing, doesn't mean I'm random. Much.

Hi Tigeree;

Your waaaaaay, waaaaaay too young to be antisocial. Get out there and mingle. You are only young once.

Re: We missed it!

It's to late, bobby. I've been antisocial ever since I was a kid. I just don't like people. That's the point I don't like mingling. Once I get certain people close to me I never let go, and everyone else I ignore.

You seem to have no problems over here. So what is the difference?

Re: We missed it!

Yeah, I know, it's just the real world. I don't like it. It's extremely depressing. And average people don't make it any better. That is why here is so different, here is just ... nice.

Re: We missed it!

Hi all;

Here is some NASA doubletalk as to why the earth won't end in 2012. Basically there statement reads since it has never ended before it will not end in 2012. Maybe.They claim their is no disaster heading are way.

Question;  Would they really tell us if there were?

Re: We missed it!

I so doubt it. They just don't want a global panic. But y'know 2012 just seems to early, in a way, or not soon enough... I guess they're right with the theory 'it's never ended before' but the earth's never been so polluted before. The farther technology advances the more we're killing ourselves.

Re: We missed it!

well, with gravitomagnetism... when the sun comes close to the galaxy axis, it is gonna move slower/quicker through, what with all the dust there. We wont notice anything until after.... We will be a bit out of course, that's all it needs to destroy, a little out of course

Re: We missed it!

Yeah, I heard something about a... oh, I can't remember... some kind of supernova heat flare, that comes out from the sun and destroy the earth. but you can't tell when it's going to happen. Well, only that the sun will expand and it's gases will get restless, and something like a solar flare. That's just one of the conspiracies I've heard.

Yeah, yeah, see. I think that conspiracy was also on the movie Knowing. I do remember from the more recent Mummy movies (#2) that there was an Apocalypse where there were 7 plagues.

Re: We missed it!

How could anything go wrong?

Life has survived quite alot you know, maybe the sun is not so hot after all, maybe we can steal its candy, ey?

I suppose there will be something good left even if the polar bear dies... I s'pose no one will eat it?

I just don't know anymore, if this place is under 9 meters of water, then maybe I'll do something.

and if the moon goes away, I imagine it will get slightly a bit hotter...
like 3%, and that just does it, I'm swimming over to a safer place, how about a place that doesn't actually move in circles in a circle around a bigger circle...

The big question is probably, is it really that bad inside the sun?
I imagine a black hole is probably much worse.

Re: We missed it!

Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night with all the curtains drawn, I have fun imagining that my room has been tossed into space, and that if I open any doors I will be flung out into deep space. Variants on this include the world outside suffering from nuclear fallout, bricks filling the doorway, like in the matrix, or space being curved, so that exiting through one door will mean entering through the other. When I am imagining this and the night is dead silent, it almost feels real. It feels pretty cool but also a bit scary.
What if one night I wake to find out that my imaginings have become reality? To think that your mind can mold reality is a pretty scary thought.

Hi identity;

Re: We missed it!

That would be the most awesome thing ever! Well, mostly. It'd be better if you could like, delete anything that you accidently 'imagined to life'. But, I'm happy with my premonitions.
