      While I may be a moron, that doesn't mean I'm a liar. Even morons speak the truth occasionally, be it by accident or not.

      Winning is one of the first signs of the Apocalypse? Who knew? Maybe Charlie Sheen is the second coming of Jesus himself. Just sayin'...

    to all you 2012 people and that May 21 2011 people get over it. Things happen cause they happen. Stop trying to make it a big deal and freak people out. Swear people are just so easy to control with this 2012 and May 21 2011 stuff.

      An earthquake that injures no one and damages nothing is karmic retribution for something that happened in a war seventy years ago? I would have thought that the atomic bombs were enough.
      By the way, what did those people in Christchurch do to deserve their "karma?"
