Pony Request: The Orange

Can we have trump.metafilter.com, and put all Trump-related content there? That way, we know where to find it and where to avoid it. The rest of the world will thank us.

... and I feel fine.

Hey, remember on the blue last spring when we talked about how Harold Camping's Family Radio Worldwide bought all those billboards last spring announcing the end of the world for May 21? And then when that didn't happen, he disappeared and then later resurfaced to refine his prediction? Well, today was it: October 21, 2011 -- the end of the world. [more inside]

I find all of these end of the world FPP's curious.

I find all of these end of the world FPP's curious. We had this excellent one about the film Threads on Dec. 21st and this other about a new film called Ever Since the World Ended from Nov. 14th and of course the one about the game DEFCON from Oct. 2nd.

I wjust learned this was addressed on Metatalk back in March of last year. (Please feel free to remove this if it is considered an un-necessary duplicate), but I thought it would be interesting to ask mefites what s going on? Why are we averaging one FPP per month in the last four months? Is it some sort of generalized abstract fear, is the much touted "hive mind" responding to feeling the second hand of the doomsday clock moving closer to midnight or do people naturally turn to apocalyptic movies, books (and now video games) in times of uncertainty?

Is it the end times??

If I didn't know any better, I'd think the Apocalypse was upon us from the questions that have been popping up in AskMe over the past day: [1],[2],[3]

Did I miss something? Is it the end times?? Are we at DEFCON 1 Homeland Security level Red??
