Brent: Don’t Laugh re: End is Near

Responding to "Rapture ribbing leads to shooting," Brent Andrews comments: "I think we laugh off the end of the world at some risk. We could find ourselves laughing, ha ha, only to discover at Zero Hour that on May 21 the Japanese knew they’d never be able to clean up their mess; that also on that day the last whale left the Gulf of Mexico forever; and the last dancing woman, harassed and taxed to death and no longer able to make a living in a no smoking, no extras, socialist new world order - walked out of the Deja Vu never to return. It would take a while for the effects to be known. Whatever was supposed to have happened might have actually happened, but we just don’t know it."

Question: What sign would indicate to you that the end is here?
