As reports mount of pre-Armageddon panic in Russia, people gathering in rural France in the hope of being rescued by resident aliens, arks in China and survivalists in the UK learning to love squirrel (and don't say we didn't warn you), it seems the time has come for even a wizened old sceptic like me to contemplate the end of times.
As ever, we need to look at the positive benefits of the situation. What would be the upside of the end of days? Why should we positively welcome it? Here's a few suggestions, but I'm sure the P.ie hive mind can come up with lots more:
- Ending the world would be god's way of halting our march towards abortion on demand.
- It's one way to default on our debt with no future repercussions.
- We'd wipe out all overdue mortgages in an instant.
- Zerobrains needs it to happen 'in a matter of days' to obliterate all record of their previous predictions.
