You can just chat and still get the emblem for participation.

And I see you're using the Kouzan name on BMGf too.

      I'm already celebrating the fact that those who predicted the end have failed again.

        That always happens right? Those sadistic people who are pro-apocalypse, how many times have they predicted the world would end?

        Maaany?

        Actually tbh I'm sad for those who might've killed themselves thinking it would be the end ;( I hope there isn't any but I really doubt that.

          I was going to post something along those lines, but I didn't want to bring the mood down. Considering there was a girl that killed herself over the experiments at the LHC, and how they could potentially destroy the world, we would be lucky if there were none this time around.

          Can we blame doom sayers and the media for these deaths, I wonder?

          Yeah I heard that people were planing to commit suicide cause they actually believed it.

          That's just sad that people would take their lives cause of a phony prophecy.

          It's not really the media's fault, given they're taking it very light-heartedly (at least here), with smiles on their faces. For serious things they just... don't. I'm not sure why someone in the media WOULD actually make it come across seriously as that's not ethically right (or allowed in the law, unless it's for certain, iirc from my media law and ethics book). ;(

          The Internet and word of mouth is definitely the most problematic thing of all, though. That's what's causing the hype which is kind of greatly irritating, considering how easy it is to spread fake information around the Internet, while in the actual media, stuff like that needs to be treated a certain way. The media knows if they definitely report on the end of the world as in "the end", then they'll just be causing mass hysteria, and possible suicides. It just can't be done that way. Anyone taking the media's messages about this seriously should really... think about their lives.

          Still, if it helps, I'm going into journalism soon (if I can get a job when I start looking soon :x) and I wouldn't report something like that seriously, but yeah.

          Well we can't make the media NOT report something as widespread.

            There are other branches of media besides news and current affairs that don't necessarily try to force others to believe, and may even try to help the opposite view, but still cause issues. Perhaps we can't stop them reporting it, but from what I have seen, and what I know about the way people's minds work, things could have been done differently. Even articles debunking doomsday myths can't stop people from believing, because there are people that still don't believe in what a lot of science has proven. Headlines like 'End of the World Today' don't help, because we all know that the most memorable part of an article is the headline.

              Aww, and I was really hoping for the world to end! /sarcasmintended

              So, anyone do anything worthwhile today so far?
              I ate 300 calories today so far, and lost 1,000 :D

                I put up my tree last week and it was really fun. We put up our lights on Thursday so you can say I've really been into the Christmas spirit lately. Can't wait to Tuesday!

                    It's Dec. 21 on my time, and my dog is acting really strange, as he's always next to the backyard door and the garage door.
