I feel like this doomsday is just not as good as the one Harold Camping had back in May. It is kind of like in Big Daddy when Adam Sandler ruined the good surprise. When May 21 came and went without everyone dying, the man who made the prediction, Harold Camping, said he had miscalculated and the date was actually May 21. The problem with Harold and all his calculations is that he beat the odds on his life. He made the first prediction when he was younger and probably thought he would be long dead before May 21, 2011, came around. He probably figured he would not make it to 90 so it was a safe bet with no repercussions. Note to future evangelists, make sure the end of the world is going to happen after you would be 110. Just to be safe.

Ever since his prediction turned out to be wrong, his radio network of 60 stations has crumbled and he is down to just 25 people a week at his church services. Apparently people want their doomsday predictions to be accurate.
This time around Harold has dropped out of sight, but his church has already reserved space this Sunday in the place they worship. Guess that means we are safe.
