End Of The World

6 Conversations

So, I am trying to get back to sleep after my 9 month old has awakened me at 1 AM. During this precious, while trying to regain unconsciousness, is when I have the most brilliant and most bizarre thoughts. It was at this time that I realized that the end of the world (according to h2g2) is going to occur on October 7, 2010. Now, this may have been a widely known fact, but it has just occured to me, therefore I'm going to write about it as if it is a fresh new idea.

The train of thought goes as follows:
* January 01, 2001 will be coming up soon and it will be somewhat of
a binary date (01/01/01).
* The binary for 42 is 101010.
* October 10, 2010 - Very interesting. (This date lands on a Sunday).
* It would come to reason that if Deep Thought created Earth to
compute the Ultimate Question to Life, the Universe and Everything
that numbers pretty much rule the universe,
the Ultimate Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything, which is
numeric, would play some part in computing the Ultimate Question.
* The Earth was destroyed on a Thursday, three days prior to the
completion of the computation.
* If October 10, 2010 (10/10/10) is on a Sunday, then three days
prior to this date in October 7, 2010 (a Thursday)

Now, is this some kind of mad coincidence?...

Did Mr. Adams plan this?...

Is he trying to pull a Prince "1999" stunt? (Making this date highly anticipated)...

The End Is Near
