*These guys almost always make me laugh:  http://the-end.com/2008GodsFinalWitness/?gclid=CMTbw7iKqJACFSeeIwodWXL7pg.  I say almost always because you never know, if enough people keep saying that it’s the end times, eventually, it will be the end times and then they’ll get to say; See, told you so.  Only there won’t be anyone to hear them, so what’s the point in worrying over the end times?  One of the few memorable things someone from the religious community ever said that has stayed with me is this:

“Father, what would you do if you knew Jesus was coming tomorrow?”

“I’d plant a tree,” replied the Catholic priest.

“You’d plant a tree in honor of Jesus’ coming?”

“No.  I’d plant a tree, because tomorrow I plan on planting a tree.”

“After there is great trouble among mankind, a greater one is prepared. The great mover of the universe will renew time, rain, blood, thirst, famine, steel weapons and disease. In the heavens, a fire seen.”

Author Popularity 9/10 Nostradamus

“Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.”

George Washington quote
