The End

No time to write a new post. I have to get ready for the end of the world tomorrow.

Of course, this isn't the first time to tackle the subject on this blog. In May 2011, we braced ourselves to be raptured according to Harold Camping's predictions. Just a few months earlier, the Large Hadron Collider came on-line and some speculated it would create a black hole that would swallow the earth.

Two tries (three, if you count Camping's second try that October) and I'm still here. I figure I'll survive this one too. But just in case, I better get this post up early...

As a side note, an asteroid flew by the Earth last weekend and missed by only 5 million or so miles. I reasoned with my engineer coworkers that the Mayans did some pretty impressive math. 5 days and 5 million miles isn't too bad if you propagate small errors five thousand years.

What are you doing tomorrow to celebrate the end of the world? Me, I'm taking my kids to Legoland!
