Dubai Apocalyptic Billboards

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Interesting Gulf News article from the other day: “‘End of days’ billboards in Dubai to be removed, says official.”

Apparently some wacko church in the US is putting billboards up in Dubai that says the world is ending.

On May 21.

Wow, that’s soon.

How BP might be the cause of the Apocalypse

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

I’ve never heard of this Helium (the publication, not the noble gas) but the headline is quite striking: “How BP Gulf disaster may have triggered a ‘world-killing’ event.”

Key quote:

The bottom line: BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling operation may have triggered an irreversible, cascading geological Apocalypse that will culminate with the first mass extinction of life on Earth in many millions of years.

They compare it to Permian–Triassic extinction event. You know, the one scientists affectionately nicknamed “the Great Dying”.

In that case? I’m going back to bed. And when I wake up? Real bacon instead of this turkey bacon malarkey.
