We are still here, how embarrassing for Harold Camping who predicted the end of the world. This is the second time his “calculations” have been wrong. Some of those who believed him even went as far as spending their entire life savings to convince others about the world’s “imminent demise.” Iceland’s volcano erupting and subsequent local earthquakes are the closest thing the world got to the greatly hyped fire and brimstone judgment day, but we already dealt with that problem back in 2010.

I, for one enjoyed entertaining the idea of dogs finally inheriting the world. We have been nothing but loyal to our human companions and deserve to take the throne once they are gone.

Seismic activity and other natural events (tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, etc.) are cyclical, and those humans who truly believed that May 21, 2011 was the end of the world need to go to the vet and have their heads checked.
