They always do this

The thing that really pisses me off about end-of-the-world predictions is that when they fail, as they always do, the people who made the predictions just change the dates, i.e. move the goalposts. Once again, that is the case with the latest prediction of the end of the world.

And people will still be following this guy even after this. When will we have a power source that can turn human gullibity into energy?

Actually, I know why it didn’t occur: we didn’t have some fitting music to go with it!

    Yeah I thought that was a bit ridiculous.. 😛
    I mean ok, you want to predict the end of the world, be my guess.. but don’t go changing the date as soon as you realize you were wrong..! Human Gullibility into energy?? The systems would have an overload and break down!!! 😛

    An overload? They’d be so efficient, that the manufacturer would be arrested for the laws of thermodynamics! :p
