It’s the 21st of May, 2011 and I am still alive. Is anyone genuinely surprised?

Well all right, we should keep in mind that what Harold Camping, according to Wikipedia, really said was that it was actually the Rapture that was going to occur today and the actual Apocalypse on October 21st, which would explain why someone like me is still on Earth!

Now, what is it with Camping and the number 21? Does it have something to do with the answer to the ultimate quesion of Life, the Universe and Everything being 42, which is 21 x 2? My guess is that he read The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy before he went certifiably insane.
