Pat Robertson Predicts Doomsday Asteroid Could Hit Next Week

Pat-Robertson1

(PCM) While we would not go as far as to say run for cover just yet, televangelist Pat Robertson has predicted, yet again, that the end of days is near.

Figures it would be yesterday, which happened to be Earth Day, that NASA astronauts released the information that the Earth has been hit by more asteroids that previously known. There have been over 26 asteroid impacts since 2001 and it so happens that each impact caused explosions that were on a level scale with that of an atomic bomb.

During his show, “The 700 Club” which airs on ABC Family, Robertson claimed that any one of these asteroid strikes could bring about the prophesied “end of days”. Robertson has been claiming for a good many years that the end of days is near and even published a book titled “The End Of The Age” back in 1995 that focused on predictions that an asteroid would wipe out the planet.

Robertson’s recent claim states that nothing “else that fulfills the prophetic words of Jesus Christ other than an asteroid strike. There isn’t anything that will cause the seas to roil, that will cause the skies to darken, the moon and the sun not to give their light, the nations terrified on Earth saying ‘what’s happening?’”

He goes on to say “It could be next week, or it could be a 1,000 years from now, but nevertheless we want to be ready at whatever time the Lord says ‘I’m wrapping it up, it’s time to come home.’”

How do you feel about Robertson’s predictions? Do you have a Doomsday plan?

South Carolina Man Slapped With A $525 Citation Over A Drink Refill Will Instead Get A Warning

soda-refill1

(PCM) Recently, a South Carolina man, Christopher Lewis, was federally charged a $525 fine over a $0.89 drink refill at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center. Thank goodness, it now appears that Lewis will be able to get off with only a warning over the incident.

Mostly likely based upon the national attention that the case is beginning to receive, the Medical Center has reviewed the case and determined that a warning instead of a fine would be sufficient in this particular situation.

Lewis, who works as an on-site construction worker at the hospital, was on his lunch break and was completely unaware that refills on his drink were not free. He was shocked when he was given a ticket by the Federal Police Force at the hospital to the tune of $525 after he went up and refilled his drink, failing to pay the $0.89 refill fee.

I truly can’t stop laughing at this, but a hospital spokesperson called the incident “theft of government property”. You would seriously think these individuals would have more to worry about than free refills in the cafeteria. The hospital went on to say that there are signs posted all around the cafeteria that say drink refills are not free, however Lewis claims that he has never noticed them and has refilled his drink in the past without issue.

To make matters worse, Lewis is now out of a job. Lewis claims that when he was approached by the officer who issued the initial citation, he attempted to pay for the refill right then and there, but was not allowed, therefore not having the option to make right what he had done wrong accidentally.

He was taken to a room, given the $525 citation for shoplifting and was told not to return to the property. Lewis asked about returning to the construction site to finish his job if he agreed to bring his own lunch and stay out of the cafeteria, however the officer wanted him off the premises completely.

The hospital claims that Lewis was aggressive during the confrontation. I don’t blame him! I know rules are rule and there to follow, but to cost someone their job even when they tried to make amends is just not right.

Lewis plans to contest the fine in federal court if it even makes it that far. Something tells me they are going to want to avoid the mess and just leave things with the warning.

Man’s Three Word Obituary And Other Famous Last Words

dead

(PCM) If you have seen the headlines recently that you have most likely heard about Stig Kernell of Sweden and his three word obituary that has since gone viral. Kernell had an incredible sense of humor right up until his death at age 92, so his obituary simply read ” I am dead”.  Those three simple words are certainly garnering Kernell with a lot more attention postmortem that he would have ever expected.

Climb up the highest mountain
Kick your feet up in the air
You may now live forever
Or return to this earth
Unless you feel good where you are 
-John Laird McCaffrey’s tombstone (look at the first letter of each phrase)

Friends applaud! The comedy is finished – Ludwig Van Beethoven

These are just a handful of the many, many famous last words that have been uttered over the years. We hope you enjoyed our list!

You can watch live webcasts of the launch at both NASA.com and Space X by clicking here!

As it begins to get dark later this evenings the planet Mars will be at its’ very brightest as it is currently making its’ closest approach to Earth since 2008 at 57 million miles away. Those that look to the sky just after sunset will be able to see Mars as large orange beacon overhead. According to Space.com, it will be blazing as brightly as Sirius, the most luminous star in the sky other than the sun.

If all that wasn’t enough, a total lunar eclipse will be visible in the overnight hours that will be visible to all of North and South America. The Slooh, Virtual Telescope Project and NASA webcasts will provide viewers with a front-row seat to all the eclipse action. The total lunar eclipse, the very first of 2014, is set to begin at 12:53 am EST with the moon entering Earth’s shadow. The total eclipse will be visible around 3:06 am EST and it will end around 4:24 am EST.

The next lunar eclipse is set to take place on October 8th later this year.

Looks like we aren’t getting any sleep tonight!

Angelina Jolie Look-a-Like Stabs A Man After He Refuses Sex

Luminita1

(PCM) Yes, you did read that headline correctly! A 31-year old Romanian woman, who bears an eerie resemblance to actress Angelina Jolie, allegedly forced a taxi driver to have sex with her twice at knife-point before brutally stabbing him six times when he could not perform a third time.

The woman, whose name is Luminita Perijoc, jumped the taxi driver, Nicolae Stan, when he approached her residence to deliver wine. Perijoc dragged Stan into her residence, held a knife to his neck and forced him to engage in sexual intercourse with her twice.

When Stan could not perform the act of sex for a third time, Perijoc proceeded to stab Stan six times. He was finally able to escape and flee to a bedroom where he locked himself inside and contacted the authorities.

Perijoc, who models her style after Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider character Laura Croft, claimed to be under the influence of heavy medication when she was arrested at the scene. She also initially claimed to be the victim in the attack. She was charged in court with a four year suspended sentence.

As for the victim, Stan claims that he has been the victim of merciless teasing and has become a local celebrity of sorts. Many don’t understand why Stan, who happens to be married with three children, would have refused Perijoc’s advances, however Stan claims that they have no idea what is like to be held a knife point by a screaming woman.

Good point Stan! We think many of those ridiculing you would have reacted exactly the same way.
