Come on Planet X and make up for the no show by Giant Meteor!


#3

Planet X, Niberu, Red Pachinko, etc, has been ready to doom us next week since at least 1995.


#4

The preponderance of incredibly stupid people who fall for this sort of stuff makes me wish that the World actually would end.


#5

It’s actually Pluto coming after us, for having demoted it from planet status.


#6

Saturday in which timezone is this disaster supposed to hit actually?


#7

Makes about as much sense as climate change. There are very fine theories on both sides.


#8

I think that’s tomorrow?


#9

Jesus, a little more notice next time, please!


#10

Prior planning prevents piss poor performance.


#11

On his way… but the whole thing seems pretty Mickey Mouse, to me.


#12

The TWILIGHT time ZONE.


#13

Prior planning! Of course! That’s my problem! I’ve been trying to plan afterward all this time.


#14

Normally, playing games with the emergency messaging system would merit a swift butt-kicking from the FCC.


#15

Wait, who are the alleged conspirators here?


#16

Crab people


#17

but… but… wouldn’t that prove their point?


#18

No, Jesus specifically said there would be no warning. Which makes these folk even more suspect.


#19

Also reported on Gizmodo. There was at least one other broadcast which used audio from an episode of Coast to Coast:

The episode they used from C2C really shows their hand as a prankster.

Not if it occurred without a warning from their scam-artist overlord.
