The last day of the world was scheduled for the following Tuesday.
After a lot of heated discussion as to what should be the exact date, a compromise was reached between the scientists, the religious communities and the politicians. Next Tuesday it was.
Despite some panic, Tuesday came and went. People carried on working, playing, learning, loving – living. There was outrage, of course. The scientists said it had been a political decision, the religious leaders praised their gods for saving us all. The politicians were heard to observe, acidly, that they had not specified which ‘next’ Tuesday they had meant.
