Doomsday? Wake Me when it's Over

"One week till doomsday ..."caught my eye in the National Post yesterday.  Theoretically one week from today we will all be dead unless we happen to be of a certain religious sect, the world having come to an end next Saturday, May 21.  Yup, more religious wackos predicting another "end of days", "judgment day", or some such other garbage.  How boring.  How utterly ridiculous.  How sad.  Deluded idiotic Chicken Little's telling us the sky is going to fall (again).  And what happens to these crazies when their dire prediction doesn't come true time after time after time after time?  They will claim that their words were "misinterpreted", that they were somehow "misunderstood" - or that their god has heard their prayers and postponed Armageddon.  I don't know.  It's just all so tedious.
