The Sun Also Rises

What did we find out when the world woke up on the following days?

August 17, 1977
December 9, 1980
April 1, 1994
April 6, 1994
August 10, 1995
September 1, 1997
July 17, 1999
February 9, 2007

June 26, 2009

Answer - the sun still rose in the east ,birds still sang, dogs still barked and cats still caused me to sneeze; rain still fell and flowers still bloomed, children were still conceived, people still died, rivers continued to flow into the ocean, the waves continued to crash on sand, apples miraculously still dropped from trees, politicians still lied and the sun still set in the west, as it had for billions of years.

Although the days before these ordinary days were also the same they were different in only one thing. A small (yet large enough to make their histrionic wails rise to the heavens) minority of people believed that day was the last day on earth that anything would remain the same.

And they all went to bed.

And they all got up.

And they all went on, the same as before.
