The World Didn’t End

Guess it’s time for a tiny celebration….

Heard this song on a Celtic Thunder show and found this older version. Has a nice celebratory feel to it:

France survived (for some reason I find this funny in French…):

And Germany (with an odd hint of Zydeco to it):

Yes, it’s a New Day:

    Reason triumphs once again. For a few seconds, anyway.

    I prefer this one:

  3. If you like Celtic music give this Irish band a test-drive ;)
    My son Mick is their fiddler. He also likes US-traditional…

    The world didn’t end? How do you know?

  5. Jeff Alberts says:

    Chuckles, you forgot the /sarc tag.

    Can I get back to you on that? I’m having trouble finding a reference to site…

    I was thinking of the Hitchhiker’s Guide on allied subjects –

    “There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
    There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

    And for the disbelieving, remember,

    The Guide –

    “…though it cannot hope to be useful or informative on all matters, it does make the reassuring claim that where it is inaccurate, it is at least definitively inaccurate. In cases of major discrepancy it was always reality that’s got it wrong.”

    Sounds a bit like some parts of modern science actually?

    And, if it’s Apocalypse you want, here’s the original AGW ditty

    Still here.

    So… is that a good thing or a bad thing? I’m confused ;o)

    I’m probably too late to put out T-shirts printed with “I Survived The Rapture of 2011.” I suppose I can get one at Wal-Mart on Monday.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it. Pretty good parody here:

    Thanks for that first one about the animals. Makes YouTube worth it :-)

    Wellll…..Saturday was actually only going to be the rapture (with the earthquakes – does the Icelandic Volcano qualify?). So only the good would disappear and then the rest of us would have 153 days of hell on earth to redeem ourselves before the planet goes “poof”.

    So does that mean we are just the bad ones? and 200 million people disappeared Saturday? (I know some very disappointed ones from that Church).

    Just goes to show – even Harold Camping can be a Climate ‘Scientist’

  15. H.R. says:

    I heard today that ol’ Harold said, “Oops! My bad. Did I say May 21st? I meant OCTOBER 21st.”

    I’ve paraphrased a bit but that was his response. The man is definitely short a few Cheerios of a full bowl.

    He has a bowl?



    That link is a great article!
