I was wondering: Why is it, that in some countries you get the presents on 25th? I mean, Jesus was born on 24th, and to celebrate his birth, we bring each other presents. That makes sense. But presents on the 25th? Doesn't make too much sense... or is it because Jesus recieved his presents on the 25th?

Just a little political statement: Fuck YOU, NRA!I totally agree - they are demented in thinking that an increased amount of guns in the hands of the general public actually helps to lower gun crime. Statistically speaking, the more guns there are, the higher a chance that one is going to fall into the hands of someone who would be labelled as "unhinged"
If they had anything more to say in this country, than every newborn child would get a weapon in their hands. Their logic is just so silly... it's like, if there are too many robberies, people should rob the stores themselves, so no robber can steal anything anymore.
Also, the statement: "If there where more guns, someone could've shot him!" or "Those people drive into towns/states where the guns are forbidden, so they can cause more damage" are just disgusting. Guess what? If guns where forbidden everywhere, then he couldn't cause any damage.
Also, there's one major flaw in their logic: That guy got the guns from his mother. So, his mother already owned guns. And did it help her? No.
Well, it's the 23rd here, so I guess it didn't end, after all. Jim Butcher said that his faith on the Final Doom is shaken, as this is his 7th Apocalypse...

That's what I heard as well, but nothing happened.

So, when exactly is the world supposed to end? I mean, midnight? Or midnight the following day? Which time zone? Oh god, so many unanswered questions!I thought it was 11am GMT...
Still here...I guess we have to wait until the start of the next day in Mexico, then.
I guess now we can safely say that the world didn't end.

Yeah, self defense is something I can understand. But arming yourself, to "protect" you from someone who is armed as well is just silly.You don't need a gun to protect yourself but this country sadly has the logic that to arrest someone for burglary, they must go through your house successfully and take whatever they find.
So, your law system does't know any "attempted crimes"? Here you can get busted if you "attempt" to commit a crime. And catching someone who enters your house without your permission is a pretty solid case.
Who even cares anymore?
Well that's it then. Absolutely nothing happened. Most disappointing thing that happened was Margaret Thatcher surviving from her operation.Well, we have to wait until the next day is over. Since some claimed the apocalypse will happen on 23rd. But we will be disappointed again.
Too many people. Sadly.
I can accept that prediction but yeah, it's billions of years anyway so fuck it.
So can we laugh off every end of the world prediction now?I'm pretty sure the scientific predictions are right: When the sun explodes, the world will end. But this won't happen any time soon (in 4 billion years, I think).
You mean, not even dragons live that long? ;)
Also, how can I watch new episodes if they aren't shown on Free TV? I won't get any Pay Per View TV channel just to watch that series.Buy the box sets!
Give me money!
The Doctor is fucking amazing so you should never underestimate him.
You better familiarise yourself with his regeneration process.Still it's possible. Or how else could it be that the Daleks killed so many Time Lords?
Oh, the doctor did it. He saved us.

Hiding away from the end of the world. :P
No. On 24th I was at my in-laws. Two parents-in-law, two sisters-in-law and one husband of my sister-in-law. The first sil with two kids (13 and 8), the second with one kid (2).
On 25th, I was at my mother's. Plus her common-law spouse. Plus my grandma and one of my uncles and his wife. Also, my brother, his gf and his two kids (4 and 1 1/2).
On 26th, I was at my father's. Plus his common-law spouse. Plus my aunt. Also, my brother, his gf and his two kids (4 and 1 1/2).
My family is getting too big for things like christmas. And worst of all: I had to go to work today. UGH!

I've tried it all the way through and the piece of shit still doesn't work. See, this is why I don't trust doctors.

My mum does agree that the doctors' advise to take antibiotics to make them settle down isn't a good idea. If that's what they do try to put me on if I do require an appointment, then I'll simply give them shit in return and make a bold statement that they never do the trick for me. Infact, I don't even remember them helping me out with any medical condition at all.Have you ever gone through the entire course of antibiotics, like you should, rather than taking them for a few days, think that they aren't working and stop?
Some people just don't react to antibiotics (and some are allergic to them). But yeah, doctors tend to prescribe too many antibiotics. It's hard to find a good doctor.
