This comet MIGHT be awesome, it might be a first timer (would be really awesome)

But .. we just dont know shiat about it yet. It could be awesome... I hope it is awesome, but we dont know yet,.

We don't need some supernatural event to wipe us out when our own greed and apathy is doing such a bang-up job. Add a nice random comet strike or something and cockroach archaeologists will one day discover what a "Bieber" actually was.

"Next November" is slightly more than one month from now. I think he means November next year. If he has that much trouble with language, though....

Know what'd be really cool? The comet is a sungrazer, and the heating might blow the thing up as it rounds the far side of the sun, and when it comes out from behind the sun, it'll be a big cloud of comet shrapnel, and pepper earth with fragments, and everybody be freakin' an' shiat.....

It's the first-timers that are more likely to underperform. They often look great when discovered because their first exposure to solar heating is cooking off the more volatile components, but once those are gone, there just isn't enough comet left to put on a good show.

If Comet ISON is indeed related to the Great Comet of 1680 (their orbits are very similar and they may both be fragments of an earlier, even larger comet), then it's not a first-timer, and the early brightness predictions may be a bit more accurate...unless it disintegrates as it approaches the sun. OTOH, like many sungrazers, it might fragment into a few large chunks, each of which could become an impressive comet on its own.

Ya know, "ISON" is the kind of name Hollywood would use for a doomsday death comet...sounds heartless, technical, cold, pitiless, malevolent.....

Are people ever going to stop buying into this kind of hysteria? Y2K, the rapture, Mayan apocalypse, and now a freakin' comet? Of all these, only a comet could truly destroy all life on Earth, and this one will be at quite a safe distance. Are we really going to have to put up with a year of superstition and mysticism about a ball of ice? Between this and Honey Boo Boo, I think it's tike to build a Kaczynski shack out in the woods.
 
2012-09-29 07:35:24 PM  
Nope. We're all dead this December. Comet will be unseen as it passes a dead earth.

I'd always been told that....

'Next November' would be the first instance of November after this point in time. IE - 'Next November' is November 2012.
'Last November' would be the last instance of November before this point in time. IE - 'Last November' is November 2011.

'This November' is interpreted to mean 'this current (or upcoming)' November. If it's November 15th, 2012 and you say 'This November' it means 'November 2012'.
So saying 'Next November' and 'This November' are the same; except when it is November.

Which November is the soonest upcoming November? This November (aka this coming November/this upcoming November). Next november is not the upcoming one, but the one after that which would be in 2013.

People want and need the world to end, especially those who believe there's "something better" after we die. It means the awful sinfulness of the world has some kind of meaning and will pay some kind of reparation (except, you know, the Believers).

That they're wrong every single time they claim This is the Big One has never stopped this. Nor the mocking derision of those of us who Don't Believe.

Actually, next November is November 2013. Next month is what is called to people who actually understand language, as opposed to just claiming such, November instant.

You probably don't know the difference between "this August" and "last August" either.

Short answer: 'The next' == 'Next'
Long answer:

i49.tinypic.com

The best way to look at this stuff if with actual examples. Assume today is Friday the 1st. What is Next Friday?
My system: Friday the 8th
Crazy Time: Friday the 8th.

Now, assume it is Saturday the 2nd. What is Next Friday?
Using my system it is still Friday the 8th.
Using 'crazy time' 'This Friday' is now Friday the 8th and 'Next Friday' is Friday the 15th!?! CRAZY!!!
