End of World Means Most Amazing Home Page Ever, Says Google
by Andy Borowitz
December 18, 2012

[newyorker.com...]

Regarding the Mayan Apocalypse this Friday...
"People are freaking out about the world coming to an end -- I totally get that," said the Google C.E.O. Larry Page in a conference call with reporters. "But at Google we view the Apocalypse as a unique opportunity. This company was founded with the goal to 'organize the world’s information' and we see the next three days as our chance to get that done."

That was too funny. Every paragraph of that satirical article is hilarious. But I won't spoil it for members by quoting any more of it. Just read it. :)

Didn't someone in foo only just get through explaining that the world is not coming to an end, they're just rolling over the calendar for the 18th time?

:: wandering off to research which calendrical system uses 18 December as the equivalent of 1 April ::

Lucy, you may want to consider reading the essay [newyorker.com]. It is satire.

Uhm, possibly you missed the remark about calendrical systems :P

Perhaps the only advantage of G+ over FB is that G+ works in the afterlife, but only for those who go south.

Where "south" = down?

Anyway, something must have changed, because my aquarium timer now jams at 1PM rather than 5AM.

@lucy24 - south as in the domain of that red scaly guy with the bifurcated tail and a hay fork.
