    Cool You know it's doomsday when...

    You know it's doomsday when the word superfluous becomes obsolete.

    It's a strange world, anything could and does happen. Sort of.

    Post the absurd, the bizarre and the downright weird here.

    Links, comments, observations, experiences. Whatever form it takes.

    I am interested to see how strange a concoction the many and different minds here can create.

    Every third poster's name goes into a hat, possibly for a chicken raffle.

    There may not be any chicken raffle, but do you want to take that risk?

    You know it's doomsday when the tabloids are right.
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind

    As a computer programmer I enjoy these:

    "There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home."
    Ken Olsen , President, Digital Equipment, 1977
    I happen to have 7 computers at home. 9 if you count my work laptop and my mothers that I'm working on.

    You know it's doomsday when your 2012th post is in a thread named "You know it's Doomsday when..."

    (Curiously, this is also the 12th reply. Using standard "Logic for Doomies" techniques, link this post with the 20th reply and look for the secret message)

    the stars are shining brightly in the sky, and the moon is crystal clear ...

    and it's noon in summer ...

    You have a new programmable thermostat installed and realize you have no idea how to actually set the temperature.

    Had you going for a second there though eh?

    The sense of relief was worth the feeling of doubt, I reckon.

    You know it's doomsday when you buy a "The Office" DVD that comes with bonus frottage.

    I've never watched "The Office", but nobody told me THAT was going on. Perhaps I should reconsider.


    Oh, quiet, you dirty old man!
