Well, we all still seem to be here...

What a surprise. Another doomsday has come and gone and we are all still here.
Look, if you want to try and predict doomsday, that's fine. It's especially fine because it really seems to have no consequences. Just once I'd love to see the followers of these doomsday prophets stop and say, "You know... my glorious spiritual leader has been wrong about this stuff time and time again. Perhaps he is full of hot air."
But no.
I was wondering, though... would the time of the apocalypse have been on Eastern Standard Time? Mountain? Hawaii? Here in Japan we're 13 hours ahead. What about us? If it happened at 2:00 pm EST. then it's 3:00 am the next day here. Seeing as how the earth is divided into 24 time zones, it's kind of hard to pin an event on a single day.

You know, I was thinking the same thing...
Maybe "Doomsday Time" is universal ;)
