Good grief, that was fast! I heard a story in the news that they once took the roof off to hurry the process.

how exciting!

DH and I were staying in his boss's condo a few weeks ago and we generally have a 'no TV' rule whilst on our hols. His boss arrived one night to go skiing the next day and asked us what we thought of the Pope's death. 'The Pope is dead? How exciting!' I exclaimed, really meaning that I thought the whole white smoke/black smoke was exciting.............. DH and boss not exactly amused

Puff, I thought the end of the world/antichrist or whatever was supposed to come after the next pope. I think it was Nostradamus who said that there were 2 more popes until the end of the world, and someone worked out that JP was 2nd to last.
Will look up when I get home. Nice cheery thought.

Why - do you believe it?!

Gobbledigook Tue 19-Apr-05 17:44:09

Sorry, didn't mean that to sound harsh - just wonder if people really do believe this.

Gwenick Tue 19-Apr-05 17:46:03

oh no!!! ISn't he the really hardliner - worse than John Paul???

bossykate Tue 19-Apr-05 17:47:48

benedict xvi

whimsy Tue 19-Apr-05 17:47:49

I think it's very exciting Pope Benedict

bossykate Tue 19-Apr-05 17:48:22

yup he's a hardliner. i suppose african catholics will continue to die of aids for the lack of condoms

nerdgirl Tue 19-Apr-05 17:50:46

Couldn't be Nostradamus, Badhair. He claimed to foresee the future upto 3797 or something like that.

whimsy Tue 19-Apr-05 17:50:51

Give him a chance

AuntyQuated Tue 19-Apr-05 17:51:59
