Earlier today, I heard on CBC Radio a comment (in jest) that goes something like this: ".... If the end of the world is going to happen tomorrow May 21, 2011 at 6 pm, then one should rent/buy the most expensive and luxurious car or whatever indulgence on credit, and go nuts w/o fear of consequences ..."
Or, you can be like me, sitting now inside the Empire 7 cinema, waiting for The Bang Bang club to come onto the silver screen, and planning to (re)read the book tomorrow over a cup of coffee.
Or, you may find the latest "end of the world" prediction as another excuse for putting off your house chores till Sunday, if and when it comes around.
