I guess we're doomed. According to the Parowan Prophet the nukes will rain down soon. Very soon. I've got some likker here, so I think I'm all set.

I've often wondered how silly these "prophets", not to mention all the different kinds of doomsday sects etc, must feel when it turns out their prophecies didn't come true? If it really is someone's honest belief, it must be a hard blow.

They probably take failure much like weathermen.

It just encourages them. For example… The Seventh-Day Adventist church was started as a doomsday cult led by William Miller (called Millerites at the time). He predicted the world would end on October 22 of 1844. When it didn't end, as we all might have noticed, about half of the membership left. For the half who stayed, he said that the 1844 date was just God testing their faith, and that they had passed the test. Today the Seventh-Day Adventist church has about 15 million members.

…inappropriate clothing.

"Inappropriate", when it comes to clothing, is relative on a case by case basis… weather be damned.

Although, I've found that the less likely someone is to have anything you want to see, the more likely they are to flaunt it.
And vice verse, unless you hang out with supermodels.

Supermodels are overrated.
