My experiment to see if there were lots of people out there thinking all the time that the end of the world was imminent – conceived after an article, titled “end of the world is nigh”, I wrote about how a 10 metre wide lump of rock called 2009 BD was to pass close to Earth on 2 June generated lots of traffic – seemed to be suggesting that actually the fear was really June 2011.
I have not had a single search-engine-generated hit on my dummy article claiming that the end of times had been postponed to 2 July 2011. Until today that is.
So, there are still three weeks to go – lets see if the traffic builds.
