If you have Netflix, watch ‘Restrepo.’ It’s a fuckin amazing account of what happened to the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team in the Korengal Valley, Afghanistan; a place that was refered to as “The Deadliest Place On Earth” at the time.
Unfortunately, Tim Hetherington, the director and photographer of Restrepo died in Libya last month. This was his last twitter message: “In besieged Libyan city of Misrata. Indiscriminate shelling by Qaddafi forces. No sign of NATO.”
If you have a twitter account, a Facebook account, or watch cable news, you may have heard something about the world coming to an end on May 21st, 2011 (Tomorow).
Some preacher figured this all out using a system called ‘Bible-Code’. Its the ‘hidden code’ within the Bible, and its complete bullshit. You can probably find the same information in the “Harry Potter Code.” There are a couple things about ‘Bible-Code’ that actually make sense. For example, if you take every 50th letter in the Book of Genesis it spells out the Hebrew word for Bible, but this is something that I could have came up with myself, not the power of God.
So are you really gonna believe some radical Christian group about the fate of the world? Religion is all based around fear, and this is just another pathetic attempt to make us all more religious. What these idiot preachers don’t realize is that once 6:00pm passes tomorrow and everything is fine, it will just give their group, and the ‘Bible’ less credit and everybody will suddenly lose faith again.
So no, you’re not going to die tomorrow night, but you might kill some brain cells during that End of The World party.
