[edit] 1000 AD

I thought the end of 999 AD/start of 1000 AD was widely believed to be an impending end of the world thing but found an article saying that's a myth.[1] I don't know if we should include this anyway. Annquin (talk) 10:13, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Supposed update on the 'big rip'

According to this Article on the express the big rip can ouccur as early as in 2.8 billion years (according to Diego Sáez-Gómez from university of Lisbon, Portugal). Towards the end of the article it also said that :

"his team also found that this may never happen and that the universe may die as a result of a heat death, which would see all the stars die out and everything will drift apart."

I found a number of other sources claiming, pretty much, the same thing about Mr. Gómez and his finding. Should this possibility be added to the article?

(On a side note, for some reason, I find it slightly amusing how a vast number of people in the comments are unsatisfied with this prediction).--WMS (talk) 04:30, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Analysing 'the world will end soon books

What arrangements has the author made for claiming royalties - large advance/payment on publication/standard rules, and #what are they spending the money on# - luxury, entertainment, dissipation, and excess, or banking it. Unless they claim up front and spend promptly, disbelieve them. (talk) 13:33, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

You know, the world is such a dick, it seems to "tell his friends" that's it's going kaputt tomorrow, in a week, yesterday. Its friends, worried about the wellbeing of their beloved friend, start preaching about its funeral to make sure that as many people can come to pay money respects for the poor bastard. However, the world just carries on doing what it normally does and its friends are laughed at for trying to help. Goddamn you, cruel world, if only you were sincere for once in you life (which surprisingly ends every other day).--WMS (talk) 18:26, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

[edit] The end of the world as we know it

will be caused by a surfeit of end of the world predictions (and, possibly, lampreys). (talk) 09:57, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
