The World Will (Not) End Tomorrow

Harold Camping

Henry Blodget, writing for Silicon Alley Insider:

"The prognosticator who predicted that the world would end this spring, Harold Camping, has updated his forecast, and the new End Date is October 21."

Harold's picture is visual proof that ignorance is, indeed, bliss.

The fact that Harold suffered a stroke in the months since his first prediction for the end of the world would seem to indicate that tomorrow has an elevated probability to be the of the world for Harold, if not the rest of us.
