Do you have any personal acquaintances that genuinely believed the world would end on 12/21?

I hang out with people with sense. Also my family and my friends families prep for the future. We have guns, steel plates, stockpiles of ammo, radios, flashlights, food, and matches. The only reason for that is because of where America is headed now!

Mississippi has been a major outlier in most of the recent polls. Maybe we've got an influx of new users from there that are are underage or something.

It has been in most of the polls recently. I wonder why that is.

Mississippi seems to be a bit of an outlier here...

What I can't figure out is why no Mississippians are trying to defend their position? We they just joking? If so, bad way to overcome their "stupid" image.

So, this "earth-shaking discovery" went in a similar direction as the supposed subatomic particles that could travel faster than the speed of light? Pity.
That's twice in a row the "cautiously optimistic" (though admittedly more optimistic than cautious) route has let me down. Fool me three times…?

I don't think the Rapture not happening was any surprise to Harold Camping. I don't doubt it was surprising, embarrassing and maybe even disappointing to the people that followed him, but I'm fairly certain Camping himself knew exactly what he was doing.

Briceman, I'm sorry, but at 17 you really should know basic American geography.
Also, Susan is right. The WBC is very, very small and very localized. They travel all over the US to mount their protests, but the publicity they receive makes them seem much more powerful than they truly are.

You could see the funny side of someone wiping out on their bike. However, the loss of skin, muscle or shattered bones is not actually a pleasant experience. Kinda like laurel and hardy.

It is easy to see the funny side of things if you haven't experienced it for yourself. That is why we did bad things as kids. When we mature we realize the experience of the other side of that coin. It is part of the innocence. However we can help each other in the learning process. Community.

Thanks, Early! Still, I have two teenaged grandsons, 14 and 16. I can't imagine either of them making a joke about suicide. They have character and are sensitive to people's feelings. Of course, that might just be Grandma talking. :) But, I think anybody old enough to use this app SHOULD know better

29% of registered voters made obama president. Hardly a mandate, 44% of the those that could vote didn't vote, for what may go down as the important election in our history.

Who - we have almost as many under 21 year olds as we do over 40 year olds using this app.
I just looked and the number has increased quite a bit lately.

Obama has yet to compromise. Nor has he given us a plan on how he plans to:
1. Fix the horrible economy
2. Reduce the $16 trillion debt
Still waiting after four long years.

I know a psychologist who said that one of her patients canceled their appointment on the 21st because the world was support to end on that day.

What is the non-conspiracy theory you're talking about? The government's story?
19 hijackers + Osama Bin Laden=conspiracy.
By definition.

Do some research and critical thinking people. Don't believe everything you're force-fed.

Exactly. They are the least educated and poorest state the country. Although, they never fail to win the most obese state in America. You can't possibly take those people seriously.

It's asking if you KNEW anyone who believed the world would end. Not if you personally believed the world would end.

Maybe they all knew the same person...

"If Obama lost, his team would have CHEERFULLY compromised"? That's the funniest thing I've read in awhile. Regardless of anyone's political views, that statement is utterly ridiculous. Neither of the current political parties have "cheerfully compromised" in decades... Nice try, though...

tdaddy - both sides need to compromise. just because you lost the presidency doesn't mean you have to capitulate to everything the other side wants. you still fight for your side but do make some compromises for progress to happen.

Early - sadly, it was also NASA scientists who had a paper published claiming they had discovered an arsenic-based life form (on earth). This was pretty quickly debunked - apparently they didn't use appropriate controls (MAJOR no-no in scientific research) plus no one could reproduce their results.
