Crud! I am still alive

Seems like the atom smasher was a failure/success and did not destroy the earth/did smash an atom.

Dang!

Discuss or draw a pretty picture of a bird and a squirrel playing tree tag.

Tree tag is a very regional sport. In Texas it involves firearms and beer. Or at least the kid version does. Most adults and young teens move up to hard liquor.

It takes a couple of weeks to get the atoms up to speed, so check back on the 24th.

Yeah, I was going to say, the acceleration has started... the news people don't seem to understand that according to the predictions of doom the danger isn't in the initial phase, it is in the collision.

But as long as everyone feels safe.

I think there will be a little glitch to keep it from happening, and it will take a few years before they get the collission they hope for, and then they'll get it worked out in 2012, to coincide with Aztec prophecy... right when I am eligible for a pension.

No. The only thing we did in trees as kids was stage BB gun battles.

Besides my squriell is not trying to tag the bird, as much as he's trying to eat it.

Actually, you're not still alive. At the exact moment that the first two atoms were smashed together, a wormhole opened up in the space-time vortex. It quite literally sucked the entire universe through itself into another dimension, smashing everything into a tiny, tiny space, less than the size of a pinhead and destroying all life as we know it, including you. Upon emerging into the other dimension, everything was astonishingly re-assembled to substantially the same order in which it previously existed--again, including you--confounding the expectations of thousands of highly regarded physicists. They wil be trying to explain this for years.

For your part, the only differences you should notice are a slightly higher pitch to the dial tone on your telephone, and you're probably going to need to shave a little more often.

Hope this was helpful.

That's plenty of time for Doctor Who to fix it all better.

Duh, the Swiss planned it. Started at the Aztec proficy, counted backwards 50 months, and shizam, you have the start date.

And, they have the watches to do it.

Yeah, but the aliens invade in 2012. Perhaps they are invading to our primitive asses from destroying the universe...
