Betelgeuse alert! Not kidding.

The brightest star in the constellation of Orion, top left reddish star, has plummeted in brightness to its lowest luminosity ever. This star which has always been very bright going back into history, is a variable but what is happening now is unprecedented in recorded times. Some people think this could be the precursor to the star collapsing into its atomic core and a Nova resulting ? Stay tuned.  See:  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login   

Google 'Betelgeuse' for other alerts and commentary. Go out and take a look tonight before Orion sets wherever you are at  . . .

888? That's a very good luck number in China. I only see 8 guests and 3 users.

Look about three lines further down and below the dotted line.  It reads as follows:

Most Online Today: 888.  Most Online Ever: 888 (Today At 12:06:45 PM).

Whoa. you're right R99.

Gotta be some kind of crawler bot, can't imagine 888 real people landing here at once.
