The World Will End in 2014 (really!)


icon

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Scared-stiff astronomers have detected a mysterious mass they've dubbed a "chaos cloud" that dissolves everything in its path, including comets, asteroids, planets and entire stars -- and it's headed directly toward Earth!

Discovered April 6 by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, the swirling, 10 million-mile- wide cosmic dust cloud has been likened to an "acid nebula" and is hurtling toward us at close to the speed of light -- making its estimated time of arrival 9:15 a.m. EDT on June 1, 2014.

"The good news is that this finding confirms several cutting- edge ideas in theoretical physics," announced Dr. Albert Sherwinski, a Cambridge based astrophysicist with close ties to NASA.

"The bad news is that the total annihilation of our solar system is imminent."

 God, I believed it for like, 10 minutes. Then I read the comments.
I was happy, but now I'm not.
Damn you, tricking me into the end of all existence, which would rule, and they would inevitably put me on that craft.

 dam when i read it i wished it would of been true. i mean finally the end of existance, and actually close by, its not that im impatient but i hate humanity soo much that a global erradication of life would be better for everyone. yet honestly i would hope something less planetary destructive like.. human dies, nature lives and life start over as it should be.. withouth us..

well very inventive news  made me giggle

It fooled me. Maybe I should actually read the article instead of just skimming next time.

I believed it too, when I first read it.  I actually submitted it to the news before I found out that it wasn't real.  Sorry guys.  But even if it isn't--it's the most inventive tabloid story i've ever heard, wouldn't you agree?  They're getting pretty good.

You bastard.

Heh, the sending humans into space thing did sound a little strange.

Don't worry guys.  It's a tabloid story from Weekly World News.  That's quite an inventive 'bloid writer, though...

(P.S. please don't kill me )

 Heh. When I read this I was first thinking the dust cloud they saw on the telescope or something might have just been some smudge on the lens

2014, heh....I can't believe we were just talking about what we would do if the world were to suddenly end in the chatterbox...and now this...jeez...way to ruin my day Faktablad, or maybe even my life....well, at least thanx for the heads up, now it's time to get off my lazy ass and fulfill some lifelong dreams....

Strangely enough though, I kinda find this hard to believe...cuz I'm pretty sure this would have hit news channels all over the place, causing mass panic, and of course, religous doomsday theories would once again arise....Damn, I guess the Jehova's witness's really were right...Seriously, hope this isn't real..."I'm too young to die!!!!"...

 I'm not to worried about it.  If it was confirmed and proven, then we would definately be hearing about this every 5 minutes...  Like the end of the article says: "The existence of this so called chaos cloud is only a theory. Americans shouldn't panic until all the facts are in."

Wow, that would blow... I was hoping the Earth would survive at least until I die. Oh well.
