It was last month. The people who did those calculations forgot that there wasn't a year 0, so they were off by one year. And hence the world ended last month.

I thought it ended last May...oh wait...that was just the invisible Rapture. He changed it to Oct. 21st of last year.

On the other hand... if you know people who expect that the world will be ending then, ask them if you can have their house, or their car, or some other valuable possession that they won't be needing after that date. Make sure you get a lawyer to draw up the contract. They should go along with that, shouldn't they?

The world has already ended. What you think is the real world, is actually the ripples on the sands of time.

Wait, so is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Am I caught in a landslide with no escape from reality?
