After a lifetime of watching those attention-whoring fuckers predict the end of the world, and it not happening, we must now realize that they are exactly as reliable as the Westboro Baptist Church -- and just as scientific.

All the hand-wringing in my lifetime has been a huge waste of mental energy

I removed the link from my bookmarks bar so I don't instinctively go. It has cut down visits to one per day, and I think that is about right
