Interesting story, Chief. I wonder if the estimated 100,000 people will actually go there by December 21st.
I don't know, but if so then Monsieur Delord will have to pony up a boatload of wine and cheese for the party on December 22nd.
(That's as opposed to the "whine and cheese" we see on this here blog site every day.....)
This is interesting. You know it will be interesting to observe just what does take place on the 22nd of December.
Frankly at this stage I don't think anything will surprise me.
We have already been witness to so very much change.
I hope it's not the "ultimate" change - but then again remember all the hoopla surrounding Y2K. That came and went, and the only one to experience "the end of the world" shortly therafter was Al Gore.
Ya gotta wonder what goes through the minds of people the day after the shabang goes down.

The buisnessman in me wants to get shirts made that say " I survived the end of the world and all I got was this crummy t-shirt" for the 22nd. Things like tis really illustate how fragile the human condition is.
Yes - the end of the world has been at hand for thousands of years. Here Smithsonian.com lists 10 predicted "doomsdays" that never happened:
