It'l be the end of the world as we know it... :-) (With apologies to, er, who sang that song?)
While driving around Philadelphia, yesterday, we couldn't help but notice some billboards: the world will end on May 21st. That's in a few weeks. :-)
Some Christian group (why are some Christians obsessed with the apocalypse? They need therapy, and we need a break from their rantings) has decided the world will end this year. On May 21st, or perhaps a wee while later. I wonder how they got to be so specific? (I should go check their website. I wonder if they took out the special? "Sign up for a year and get the reduced rate!" I also wonder if the billboard owners demanded payment up front? Or did they invoice the group, payment due on May 22nd?
Perhaps they're being metaphorical? The world will end, but only in a metaphorical sense, on May 21st. Which would be quite embarrassing for them.
Oh well. The world will end, one day. But can it wait until the end of baseball season? I want to see how the Yankees do. :-)
