True story: I found out the May 21th issue on May 21st
when Firefox opened up Bing and something like "May 21st Prophecy" showed up as a popular result.
While I obviously don't believe it, it's important to know the serious consequences. People are ridiculing others for their faiths or are being humiliated due to this incident. Some people lost their possessions (that Camping didn't compensate for) and some committed suicide, before and after.
The whole issue eventually gave me a headache to deal with, so after a few weeks I decided to forget about this until it was October. Now, I'm just waiting for October 21st to come so we can be done with this once and for all.
