I love doomer stories, it's getting hilarious seeing people shout every day things are getting worse. "Don't worry, the financial system will collapse...you just see." Those 400 other times they said it and it didn't is forgotten.

The best was some one who had written a story that the economy was to collapse in the first week of August, widespread famine and nuclear weapons going off as people kill each other. The problem is he posted it September 26th, when it obviously had not happened.

Peak oil is the same, but people have been rattling that box for decades instead of 2 years...I remember hearing about it in elementary school. I won't hold my breath.
