The world-did-not-end traffic.

From my Site Meter, just now, under "Referring Search Words Ranked by Visits":



It's not all about the world not ending — Google traffic going to this post of mine. Somebody came here looking for "music to read to" and got to a post that I'm proud of. And then there was "you know i work on my hair" — which went here, where the clip from the movie with that quote no longer plays.

Did the guy say the world was going to end, or the rapture was going to occur? I thought it was the rapture.

Maybe it's just the case that no one we know was chosen?

People are googling: "Why did the world not end?"

I hope they're not disappointed but I suspect some are.

Becareful, the virtual world of the Althouse blog could end at any time.

It has before.

PS People should be glad it wasn't the Second Coming. Most of us aren't prepared to give an account of ourselves.

I was counting on it. I now have no idea what to do with the rest of my life. I'm thinking of a class action suit.

the radio preacher's original prediction was correct..the rapture happened in 1994..it's just that there were so few 'good christians' that nobody noticed they were missing.

Somewhere there is a primitive tribe sitting around wondering where the missionary, the nurse, and half the tribe went yesterday.

Sadly, there are those that have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

I am interested in Pastor Camping's explanation. Looks like he too has fallen victim to his own arrogance.

On the old music post: "On Land" as a throw-in for free shipping! Reminds me of the old days of browsing 12" vinyl in a brick-and-mortar and buying something on impulse because of the the cover art. I got a few gems that way, and here you got the best recording of its genre I've ever heard.
