The World Ends Not With a Bang, But with a Default

John Martin, The Great Day of His Wrath

From the blog A Blog Called Sue:

You know, in every movie I've seen about the end of the world, civilization collapses because of something wicked cool happening - an asteroid hits, nuclear war, a supervirus, an ape revolution, whatever. If civilization collapses over credit default swaps I am going to be pissed.

That's an excellent find, Counterlight.

So many guilty hands working overtime plotting greedy gains and fames...and then, alas, boom...nada, the new swimming pool, in the unpaid for mansion gets blown to smithereens (along with the mistress (a Ester Williams lookalike doing a final back dolphin while wearing her two carat diamond studs onward toward eternity).

Apparently perfect color/clarity aren´t such a bigdeal afterall...after the fall.

Gotta go punt and see if I can get the extra points.
