Phew, we missed another one. I can only assume that if you are reading this the end of the world did not happen Saturday - as was predicted.
See, a group called BetCRIS.com released a statement that, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the world's population clock will hit 6,666,666,666 and that meant the end of the world was upon us.
This is related to the "fearful" 666 number sequence, of which this is the biggest yet.
Of course, there was a time when the population was 6,666 or 66,666, or 666.666, or 6,666,666, or ... well, you get the idea.
Now, folks like Nostradamus, and even the Mayans, may have predicted that the world would end in the year 2012, but could have the ominous population tally of May 10 suggested otherwise?
Well, the folks at BetCRIS.com offered up some odds.
Odds the world would end on May - 500 to 1.
Odds the world will not end on May 10 - 1/1,000.
"People have long debated what would bring about the destruction of the world," stated Spokesperson for BetCRIS.com, Esteban Siles. "While it may be unlikely that the world will end on May 10, one never can be sure."
Guess they were wrong. Should have taken that bet!
A good idea
