Just a hoax, folks? ;-P

Damn, it seems yesterday's story about the chaos cloud amounted to just a hoax after all, folks; I would reproduce the article refuting it here, but copyright forbids me to do so - you will have to go the science page at snopes.com and check it out for yourselves:

I know most of you will think of this as good news, but the apocalyptic in me feels disappointed; after all, if we began with a 'big bang', why should we not go out with one? And stars come into and out of existence all the time; why should our own seem any different (it seems after all but a rather mediocre, middle-aged, middle-sized yellow dwarf)? You don't have to identify as a Southern Baptist to feel disappointed when the 'Rapture' fails to materialize once again! lol

I like it, Sebi...you get me? lol
Did try to learn the violin once, to teach Josh Suzuki method; he nearly set fire to his room as I did so (having mischievously grabbed a lighter and set his big doll's hair on fire), so we almost did have a "fiddling while Rome burned" scenario, until I smelled the smoke...lol (It seems funny now; it always seems funny with enough hindsight) ;-))
