+ 'it's armageddon week on the history channel', craig furguson shares, 'and i'm very excited. all this week it's specials about the end of the world. you know, a cheery start to the new year. they've got all the signs, they're studying them, and all the signs are there: they've got the four horsemen, plague of frogs, me getting married.... last night i watched a special on nostradamus, he predicted armageddon, he wrote 'there will be a great war in europe'. thats really going out on a limb, isn't it? europe is a densely populated continent full of countries that hate each other, and have for thousands of years. that's like predicting a politician will have a sex scandal, or oprah will go on a diet. many people say, of course, the best way to predict the future is to study the past- don't tell that to my new wife!'
