end of the world

I liked this. Funny and makes it easy to understand. And to anyone reading this, I hope you'll comment about what this is all about...how bright the Sun will get and how the Sun affects our planet's life and stuff. Not about Pam! Ha ha.


Hey, boys (you’re certainly not gentleman) leave Pam alone! She has her views... and even if it was a joke maybe not to her.
And who made you the spelling/ joke gods?
Maybe English is her second language? Ever thought about that? I can see not with your responses. It’s you guys who need to update your thinking!! Not Pam.

Pam, it’s you’re not “your.

Pam, it’s "you're" (you are) not "your"


No man knows the time. Only GOD
. Stop trying to out think GOD your no match.

Pam - get over yourself - it

Pam - get over yourself - it's a joke - it is meant to give you a smile at the start of a new day - obvious in your case it failed.
