Judgment Day?

I saw a billboard the other day claiming to know when Christ is due to return.
Now, I'd like to make clear that since Jesus said that no man knows when He will come again, I'm inclined to believe Him, and you should, too.
Having said that, the advertised date is May 11, 2011. Isn't that right around Mother's Day? Bummer.
The thing that caught my eye was the background scene of someone writing down the date in a "two to a view" daily planner, which made me think of what the true test of faith is: you might write it down, but how many would be willing to then tear out the rest of the planner's pages, since time should then be no more?
It sure is hard to take seriously the person who has callously made a lunch date the week after Christ's return. Or is that just me?

As before

So, the only "Anna's sixth birthday" photos we got look like this:
The book is really cool, and being used to identify all sorts of creepy crawlies. She also received a little field scope with which to view all her new creatures. To encourage the budding entomologist in her pursuits, Daddy has taken to bringing home dead bugs from work (though he does take care to only bring home the interesting-looking ones). He's nice that way.
And the exploding Sigg bottle? Here it is:

I gotta tell ya, I'm pretty impressed. I do understand the basics of freezing things and thought I'd left enough of a head in the bottle for expansion, but it appears that I was mistaken.

What makes me laugh, though, is the claim that this type of bottle is supposed to be "indestructible". It figures that it would be me who could destroy the indestructible.
