When I used to have an actual job, we knew to distinguish between normal time and 'software' time. If the software guys promised to have something done in 2 days, someone was sure to ask for the clarification, 'Is that normal time or software time?', it was important because the the difference was seldom less than a factor of 2.

Those testicularly challenged Heaves Gate folk at least had the balls, er, uh, fortitude, to act with the conviction of their beliefs. They sure didn't take the lame route of coming back with a new date!

You mean Preston bus station's still there?

She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

From eBible's Twitter feed:

The fact is that we consistently told people that October 7th, 2015 (being the end of the world) was a strong likelihood. And according to the good amount of biblical evidence at our disposal it was. Therefore saying it was a “strong likelihood” was a true statement. We also openly acknowledged that there was a small likelihood that it would not happen. There was no lie or deceitfulness involved in any way.

Basically it all comes down to the size of the likelihood.

My dad used to say: "Well, the operation was a great success, unfortunately the patient died." Good thing he wasn't a doctor.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.
