Oh, and just for grins he has a pamphlet all ready to go just in case, you know, NOTHING HAPPENS. Which apparently means that the end is still nigh just not yet here. Or something. Seriously, go read the article by Tina Dupuy on the Atlantic. She actually interviewed the old creepy dude.

At any rate, an untold number of people actually think old creepy dude has a point. So much so that they're preparing for end by giving away their money and quitting their jobs. Despite the fact that he's predicted the world's demise before and was wrong, there are still some that think he may be on to something. The rest of us? Having endless amounts of fun laughing at the old creepy dude.
I originally thought we should have a blow out end-of-the-world party Saturday, followed by another yay-we're-all-still-here party on Sunday. But since Harold says that end is coming sooner than I had thought, I may have to start tonight. Hmm. Is there enough alcohol in the house? Perhaps it's a good thing that Eldest is coming home this weekend.
Still, I expect that come Monday morning, I will still be here, as will the rest of the world. But just in case the world does end this weekend, you need to have seen this:
|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
|John Lithgow Performs Gingrich Press Release|
Which, of course, reminds me of this:
Damn, still funny.
