It's safe to be an apocalypse-denier, since if the world does end, there won't be anyone around to call me a liar.

But, yes, beer is essential to any end-of-world parties.

Can "nothing" truly happen? After all, something is always happening. If nothing is happening, then everything HAS ended! :shock:

As of a couple minutes ago, we hit the 13.0.0.0.0 mark. So far, the sky's not on fire - but then again, it's overcast out here today.

According to a Norwegian news website, Swedish police has been inviting criminals to come in and confess their crimes today, since they have nothing to lose and they will get to enjoy a fine end-of-the-World dinner party for helping police close unsolved cases before everything ends.

Considering the general intellectual nature of criminals, I will not be surprised if a couple of them show up! :lol:

Alpha Centauri is not a galaxy but rather the nearest star to us in our galaxy. Only a mere 4.5 light years away.

What the hell are you babbling about? Do you lack the ability to contextualize your statements? Seriously do you have some medical condition I should know about? Do you understand that what you wrote isn't even a sentence? What compels you to join every conversation only to blurt out some varying degree of random shite?

aserendipity - by 'not visible' you mean completely visible in a number of spectrums from as far back as 1916? Sure, from 1844-1916 there was a bit of controversy since they had been able to observe its impact on Sirius A, but these days even amateur astronomers with backyard gear are able to observe it.

I'm also not sure what the visibility (or not) of a single star has to do with it being a galaxy - a whole bunch of stars whirling around a central point.

Unless it's a very elitist galaxy, won't let anyone in but itself, but then got lonely so it's hiding inside another, bigger galaxy while claiming it's still too cool to be part of it. Snob.
