Writer's Block: Apocalypse now? @ 05:20 pm

Soundtrack: Lanny Wolfe - There's Something in the Air

It's the beginning of the end, according to Harold Camping. How will you spend what could be your last day on Earth?
I take all apocalypse predictions (whether or not I came up with them) with a "maybe it will happen, let's just wait and see" attitude, so probably the same as usual (i.e. on the same websites I normally go to, procrastinating the same things I normally procrastinate, and so on).

Yeah, I don't think the apocalypse will be anytime in 2011, but given the world we're in, it's not that far off either - it almost has to be in 2060 or earlier.

On one article I'd seen about the 5-21-11 prediction mentioned that a survey of how many Americans think that the apocalypse will definitely be 2050 or earlier.

When I read about it, I initially thought I agreed, and I was almost gonna say 2050 instead of 2060 in response to your comment, but then I decided there was probably at least a 15% chance (or so) that we'll make it past 2050, and so I said 2060 instead.

Plus, 2060 is Issac Newton's apocalypse prediction...and it contains the number 206 ;)

I feel like I would've lost my head/moved to Antarctica/become a hermit if I listened to all the apocalypse predictions, so same. I mean, it's like the bloody apocalypse is always impending, regardless of how many times the past apocalypse theorists have been wrong. :P

Given the state of society, I feel that it definitely is impending (just look how many posts I have tagged "apocalypse" or "ominous signs"). It probably won't be in 2011, but I'm almost certain that it'll be, at the very latest, 2060.
