Ok, looks like the subject got you interested.
I had to write something quickly about this. Two nights ago I read the post on Baba Vanga http://www.theastralworld.com/smf/index.php?topic=891.0
and sure enough I get into the car this morning and I hear something new on the Bubble Boy incident.
For those that haven't heard, or those that come long after this post and need a refresher, this has to do with Richard Heene, who made a weather balloon that looked like a UFO and sent it into the sky while claiming his son was on board. For two hours rescue attempts were being made and the story was all over the news. Turns out it was a hoax and the boy was hiding at the house the entire time. He and his wife have appeared on Wife Swap twice, and it came out that this was a publicity stunt.
He was hoping to get his own reality show!
And the reason was because he wanted money to build an underground bomb shelter
for when the sun explodes in 2012
Come on, people. Again, referencing my 2012 article, http://www.theastralworld.com/prophecies/2012endoftheworld.php
I realize I should update it a little to include the fact that even if you do believe the world MIGHT
end, why take the chance of ruining your life? Don't run your credit cards to the max thinking you'll be free of debt because chances are you will be bankrupt come January 2013! Don't run around thinking your actions will have no consequences! I strongly state that whether or not some major catastrophe happens, which nobody knows for sure, the earth will still be around long after our lifetimes. And I strongly believe there will be human population for a long time to come.
Secondly, and I'll try to make this short, I once had a conversation with a rather unintelligent friend about nuclear war (no offense meant to those with similar preconceptions). She said she'd like to find an underground bunker so that she could stay alive. What she couldn't grasp was the realization that everything above would be gone. "But I could come up and play with the deers, and I'd have the trees and plants!" Yes, these were her words, though it's been 10 years so I forget the exact order. Even if there wasn't total nuclear annihilation, do you really think you could eat tree leaves and keep a cute, fluffy, little frolicking fawn as company?? Do you really think you could survive after the sun explodes??
"Honey, did you bring extra batteries for the flashlight?"
"Yes, snookums. They're next to the spare parka."
I really, really hope that Richard Heene didn't get any ideas from The Astral World. It makes me want to write disclaimers on each page.
Then again, it could give me some great publicity!
