Eon8: The end of the world?

You hacker guys will love this.

The popular theory is that it's an alternate reality game but some people are theorizing that it's some kind of cyberterrorism. Either way it's very interesting. We should find out tomorrow. Unless the world ends that is.

Why the hell is the website still loading even as I post this?

The wiki article seems interesting though.

*points at his sig* Turns out the site was (as I thought) a test to see how sites like it spread and how the public would react to a suspicious website like it. They reached some very insightful conclusions.
EDIT: Hm, image sigs only work for veterans?
