Well judgement day has passed, I do believe the Jehovah witnesses owe me an apology!
Harold Camping also predicted the world would end in 1994.... Which only happened for hard-core Nirvana fans. #rapture
Judgment Day minister updates prediction: "The world doesn't end this week. Oprah does. My bad, sry."
