OK, I know that the "Doomsday Date" is a bunch of hooey, but...
I saw a report on KSDK or maybe it was Jacco, sorry not sure about people that are actually buying into the nonsense. One woman sent an email to a physicist professor saying she was going to kill her children and take her own life on Thursday, Dec.20 so that they wouldn't have to suffer.
WTH? How can anyone believe such ________(fill in the blank)?

You may be speaking about the reportage I saw. It actually was referring to all the misinformation and plain old lies on the Internet.

The Web is a great resource tool in some cases, but taking blogs, forums and other such sites as being trustworthy and accurate is a big mistake.

In regards to the world ending on Dec. 21st, I quite agree it is total hooey! Just as the Y2K proved to be.

I agree with the "baloney" theory. You can be sure though there are going to be a lot of "snake oil" vendors trying to take advantage of those who are gullible.

No one has to worry about the world ending anytime soon. But everyone should be prepared for emergencies like tornadoes, fire, and manmade craziness.

My family as emergency items, bottled water, extra batteries for flashlights and radios, canned food and sterno,first aid supplies, candles, generator, a couple of gallons of gasoline (not stored in the house), stuff like that. I don't think that's being paranoid or anything, just good planning.
