Well it took long enough! I finally finished this book today on my way to chef class. That's a huge relief to have it over with.

This is one of those books that has no characters or plot and is all really just a bunch of gathered quotes relating to the end of the world.

Now this book was published in 1999, so the end of the world that all these qoutes are referencing are for the impending Y2K.

Now as we all know, Y2K was just another false prediction of the earth's end. Now the big one is December
