Judgment Day Happened, We Just Missed It; We Also Missed the Social Media Bubble That’s About to Pop

[quote style=”boxed”]
On May 21, this last weekend, this is where the spiritual aspect of it really comes through. God again brought judgment on the world. We didn’t see any difference but God brought Judgment Day to bear upon the whole world. The whole world is under Judgment Day and it will continue right up until Oct. 21, 2011, and by that time the whole world will be destroyed.
—Harold Camping[/quote]

I’m surprised that Mr. Camping didn’t seize upon the terrible tragedy in Joplin, Missouri, as God’s first strike at Armageddon because the images from there are truly horrific. Mr. Camping, if you don’t recall, predicted the end of the world. To make matters worse, the Zombies (real ones) got in on the fun and warned they might host a Global Reanimation Block Party for those left after the Rapture.

And speaking of Doomsday predictions, Forbes.com already says the social media sector is ripe for a crash, even though we’re just now beginning the whole bubble part. Only a couple of weeks ago, I suggested we might want to temper ourselves with valuations of social media companies as investment angels pour cash into this sector. Yet Forbes is saying that, even as the recession hasn’t yet ended, the bust is coming, signified by the over valuation in the IPO for LinkedIn.com.

It’s just all around bad news.

Still, I know a lot of people quit their jobs because the world was supposed to end. If you quit your job, you’re not eligible for unemployment (and I don’t think you should be rehired because you’re just going to quit it again in five months). So maybe other unemployed might get a chance at their newly empty jobs.

Among those, me.

So we can look at the bright side of life a little bit, thanks Monty Python.
