Doom Doom Do-Doom Doom Doom

When last we left Harold Camping — well, before the stroke — he had rescheduled Armageddon for October 21, because, y’know, eschatological math is hard.

But that’s his story, and he’s sticking to it. Sort of.

The Oakland minister’s latest prediction of the end of the world — which he’s set for Friday — is couched among words like “probably” and “maybe,” a far cry from the carved-in-stone certitude he projected onto his infamous May 21 forecast.

“I do believe we’re getting very near the very end,” Camping, 90, said during a podcast recorded earlier this month and posted on his Family Radio website. “Oct. 21, that’s coming very shortly, that looks like it will be, at this point, it will be the final end of everything.”

Anyway, if you have nothing better to do on your latest Last Day on Earth, you can always put Gir on infinite loop.

Crap, and I came to work… shoulda spent the last day on Earth catching up on Southpark and watching Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, that I never got around to seeing,

Being an unemployed bum doesn’t seem so bad thanks to Camping*

*of course like I’d trust doomsday prophecies from a 90 year old kook.

If it means that I don’t have to take my Managerial Finance mid-term, then by all means bring it.

“I do believe we’re getting very near the very end…”

Of course you do, you fucker! You’re 90 years old! Dumbass

Oh, and GIR!

Ooh! This is my favorite show!
Wait, no, this is my favorite show!
Look! It’s my favorite show!
I love this show.

I’m naked!
Finally
I wanna watch the scary monkey show!

I’ll be spending the Last Day out in a very beautiful part of New Mexico scouting for Mr. Elk. My hunt starts tomorrow.

Laters.

@JNOV: God, my relative is a dumbass. We’re pulling out all our troops, but are we leaving behind “advisors”?

@JNOV: Your relative is simply accepting the Administration spin, as reported by the media, at face value. Same thing happened last year, when we “pulled” all our troops from Iraq, but really didn’t.

@nojo: Yup. She’s also applying for a reverse mortgage, so… Part of me wants to tell her, “Whoa. This is the new securities shell game,” but she “knows real estate,” so, yeah.

@JNOV:

“Bullshit. War ain’t over till people stop shooting. You can’t say you’re done taking a crap if shit’s still coming out of your ass.”

Thank you, Shit My Dad Says.

@JNOV: since there is no mortgage payment, there is no escrow. delinquent taxes can result in foreclosure. make sure she knows that. beware.

@nojo: we gotta better record against the islamists (3-0) than the communists (0-1-1). thank god the communists aren’t in the league anymore or we wouldn’t make the playoffs.

@nojo: Oh, he’s still tweeting after publishing that book? Good.

@jwmcsame: There’s no talking to her.

How come none of you ever told me about “Blue Rondo à la Turk“? That’s just wrong. Fucking time signatures? How do they work?

Is everyone still here? Stupid Rapture missed where I am.

@JNOV: Rarely. More like the TV series did him in.

Oh, and: 1-2 1-2 1-2 1-2-3.

9/8 for Dummies.

@nojo: So you squeeze the 9th in on a half-beat? I’m not used to the numerator being larger than the denominator. REDUCE!

I bought about 700 bulbs today for next spring so I don’t plan on going anywhere. Fucking pugs ate one of my hiking boots. Fuck pugs.

@JNOV: Except every fourth measure is on threes…

1-2 1-2 1-2 1-2-3
1-2 1-2 1-2 1-2-3
1-2 1-2 1-2 1-2-3
1-2-3 1-2-3 1-2-3

I’m not used to the numerator being larger than the denominator.

Mission: Impossible is 5/4.

I THOUGHT it was 5/4 the first time I heard it.

ADD: Oh, like at you, Nojo.

@Benedick: That’s a lot of bulbs. You exercise? Need tips from Catt?

GODDAMMIT! Someone in this shithole town must deliver beer.
