New Prediction For 2012 !

"Infamous futurist Alexander Grant has recently unveiled his latest prediction for the year 2012, posting on his blog his belief that early in that year there is a 99.9 percent chance that millions of people will still believe in hokey, simple-minded [rubbish] like the world ending with the Mayan calendar or the writings of Nostradamus."
"He also prophesied that many people are likely to continue believing in similar pseudo-scientific garbage in 2013, 2014 and forever onward until they realize that just because some guy with a beard on the History Channel sounds like he knows what he is talking about doesn’t mean that he does."
" 'I see a future where people read and watch things that are presented as though they’re proven fact and then accept and regurgitate this trash as truth - without bothering to even Google, much less research, the contrary viewpoint,' Grant wrote."

Time for a little English 'humour'

Just to show that it isn't all doom, gloom, and debunking, here is a little English humour. ('humor' for North Americans!)

The first clip is from a very popular motoring program called 'Top Gear'.

The next one is a little known clip by the famous Monty Python :-

Ron jumps the English Channel.
Ron eats Chichester Cathedral.
Ron digs a tunnel to Java.
Ron splits a railway carriage with his nose.
Ron runs to Mercury.
Ron breaks the world record for remaining underground.

What next?
Perhaps Ron will magically arise from his underground world record and become one of the Two Witnesses... ?
Oh, I forgot, somebody else called Ron has already claimed that one ...

...or, perhaps some European humour :-
