    OK so the world ends tomorrow, but how...

    Sure most of you here in ROG land have seen a newspaper or something on TV about the Mayan end of world prediction.

    Now I am keen to find out how do most of you think this is going to happen. Is it by meteor strike? Or aliens maybe?

    My theory is if this is going to happen it will be via Super Volcano. And Yellowstone National Park in the USA will become the largest BBQ pit ever.

    I think we will press Start for the new day but the BIOSphere will not post and we'll get an "overclock failed" message and have to RMA (Return to MAker) the motherplanet.

    Also the Laacher See super volcano is closer if a BBQ is your thing...

    Was it TS Eliot who said it would be not with a bang, but a whimper?

    Which is quite ironic since part of his inspiration may have been that his missus was having an affair........whimpering while "banging" Bertrand Russel
