Pat Robertson Predicts Doomsday Asteroid Could Hit Next Week


(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?

New Jersey Professor Suspended Over Game Of Thrones Picture


(PCM) Francis Schmidt, who is an art professor at Bergen Community College in New Jersey, claims that he was put on an eight day suspension after he posted a photo online of his daughter wearing a Game Of Thrones t-shirt.

The text on the t-shirt featured a quote from the HBO hit series which read “I will take what is mine with fire & blood”.  According to Schmidt, a school official saw the image posted online and perceived it as a threat and reported Schmidt.

The school officials who laid down Schmidt’s disciplinary action were questioned whether or not the reference was meant as a threat against the dean.

We are sure that Schmidt is going to appeal the school over his suspension and the school is calling the situation a private matter.

Nintendo’s Original Game Boy Turns 25 Today!


(PCM) Gosh…we are really starting to feel our age! Today, marks the 25th birthday of Nintendo’s iconic Game Boy hand-held gaming system. A Japanese firm released the very first 8-bit Game Boy on April 21st 1989 and we are sure no one at the time knew just the impact that it would have on the gaming industry as we know it today.

We remember begging our parents for one of these back in the early 90′s! The Game Boy marked a true revolution in the world of hand-held gaming by allowing players to take their favorite games such as Mario, Tetris and Donkey Kong on the go and there was no looking back ever since.

While Nintendo was not the first company to come up with the idea for portable gaming, both their price point and incredibly popular and addictive games made the Game Boy a must have for gamers and truly helped Nintendo make their mark in pop culture history.

While the Game Boy itself has been discontinued, it has certainly laid the groundwork for the faster and sleeker hand-held gaming consoles that are available today, as well as, many if not all of the smartphone games we find ourselves engrossed in currently.

Nintendo sold almost 119 million original Game Boy consoles when they were initially released and then another 81.5 million of the next-generation Game Boy Advance consoles, which were later launched in 2001.

Sometimes we truly miss the simplicity of those big red A + B buttons and large cross-directional pad, as it makes us want to dig out our original just for old times sake. We are certainly all about embracing technology and moving forward with the times, but every so often a trip down memory lane can be therapeutic. Happy 25th Birthday Game Boy…we still love you!
