Almost entirely off subject but talking of reporters and forecasts I came across this this morning -
(Mod note: Indeed, so I've created a new thread for your post. I love this stuff! Horizon)
The world is about to end, according to news websites. But it's almost certainly not.
Multiple news reports are claiming that the end of the world might be about to arrive. "End Of The World ‘Weeks Away’ After Biblical Plagues Start On Earth", one reads, while another claims that "End of World ‘IN WEEKS’ as signs '10 Bible plagues to destroy Earth have started’".
One of them begins "THE end of the world is coming in weeks and the first of the Biblical 10 plagues have already been seen, according to extraordinary claims". But those extraordinary claims should come with extraordinary evidence – and while there are some strange things going on, the apocalypse simply isn't about to arrive.
I hadn't read about any of this nonsense previously but it's been a while since we had an apocalyptic forecast so I'm not really surprised that we are allegedly facing our doom again. I like the reassurance. ( ' Almost certainly not.????)
Mind you, judging by the way some reports are predicting our political and economic collapse after Brexit, we British are doomed anyway. )
