Avoiding the END OF THE WORLD.

As we all know, the world's gonna end on December 21st.

I have a plan though. If I sit just west of the dateline on Dec 20, and spot on midnight cross it, I'd jump straight to Dec 22, and thus avoid the end of the world.

Anyone see any flaws in this plan?

Maybe...what's your current position? If it's Bermuda, say, or Bimini, even Belize, you're in trouble.

But, worse case is there won't be anywhere to go; nor will there be a 22 of anything ever again.

This is the end, my friend. All of us who were planning to... you know... make nice with Linsay Lohan can probably fuggetaboutit.

Don't forget to buy American Express traveler's checks. They are good in heaven and in hell. Don't leave YOUR planet without them!
