Apocalypse of the day  JUL 23 1999

It seems like every group, religion, cult, fortune teller, soothsayer, and psychic has their own idea about when the world is going to end. What we need is a Web site that keeps track of these various apocalypses...with email notification. An "apocalypse of the day" of sorts:

Today is July 23, 1999, and according to the Zoroastrians, the world is scheduled to end today at approx. 2:51 pm EST. If this turns out to be yet another false apocalypse (185 false apocalypses in a row...and counting!), your next chance to witness the end of the world will be on Aug 11, 1999. Have a nice day.
