Murphy's Law ALWAYS trumps apocalyptic predictions. And the Mayan prophecy is scheduling the end of time for this Friday, one day after this semester's grades are due. You know Murphy is not going to allow me to the pleasure of foregoing this crunch week of grading like the wind. If I try it on the off chance that End is (truly!) Near, Murphy will smack me in the face. Ergo, the prophecy is a joke.
You're welcome. We just don't teach enough logic in schools these days.
