    The hour is near!

    Remember Matthew 8 where it is written that a herd of pigs were compelled to commit suicide?

    Consider this:
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/turkey_sheep_suicide
    It's the same, only with sheep !!

    If this isn't a sign then what is? I give us until Thursday to get ready. If we are still here Thursday though, I aint gonna believe what these xtians say no more no how.

    Looks like after we are gone, we will be remembered:

    We own goats, and Alpine and a Saanen. These are known as very intelligent animals. When we were researching goats, we came upon a site that described the difference between goats and sheep this way: A sheep will wander accidentally through an open gate, then stand outside and bawl because it can’t figure out how to get back in again. A goat (at least of the smarter varieties) will pick the lock, sneak out, and slip back in again before you know it was gone. One of our neighbors had a herd of pygmy goats who did just that every day; they’d come down to our place and wander around for awhile, but always head home before our neighbor got home from work (traveling through the woods, so no one saw them going to and fro).

    One of our goats figured out how to sneak out of the fence (they have about 3 acres “free range,” with access to the barn); but he would always go to some place where he was blocked from our view first, so we couldn’t see how he did it. We’d watch him sneak behind a tree or the barn or some brush, and when he was in view again he’d be outside the fence. (Have replaced all our fencing since.) I have heard of sheep who eat their way into the corner of the fence, and don’t know how to get out of the corner.

    Sheep are also followers. The first sheep over the cliff may have been the bellwether, and the rest just followed.

    Thursday huh? Well, I’m free Thursday. Let’s see, this is Tuesday… Maybe I should get all the grass mowed so we leave the place nice and tidy…

    I've heard that goats are very intelligent; seems other animals may have more brains than we give them credit for as well. Not sheep though ...

    I cut my grass yesterday and it was pure Zen: me, the mower, the grass, the air all melding together in an isothermal mass of 98.6F. It was a two glasses of water job ...

    I'm posting this from Thursday. The world hasn't ended. The rapture hasn't arrived.
    The winning lottery numbers are:

    7, 16, 35, 21, 1A, D3, &@

    EDIT: Hmmm I think some of that got garbled in the transfer to the past. Oh well.

    Obviously "Thursday" was not meant in the calendar sense, but rather in the spiritual sense. It's Spiritual Thursday, meaning whatever the hell day Christ returns if he ever does. Can't go wrong with prophecy.

    Apparently, the Thursday came and went, and wait! It’s coming again! Is this the transmigration of souls? Or Nietzsche’s eternal recurrence? Am I going to become Bill Murray in “Groundhog Day?”

    Have just spent the last 2 hours on these threads. I am caught in the eternal recurrence! No, my friend, I realize now that "Saturday" will never come for me!

    (muttering to himself: "there is no boat, there is no river...."😉

    OK, when I read about the "sheep and goats" it has always been my assumption that the sheep were the "good guys." Maybe this is not the case.
