"Probably" The End Of The World

Remember back in May when 90-year old Harold Camping predicted that the world would end on May 21, 2011, causing some of his followers to donate their life savings to him, money he used to buy 2,000 billboards promoting the event?

Well, he's back.  After suffering national ridicule in May and a stroke in June, he's now predicting that the world will "probably" end on October 21st, in two days.  You really must have the courage of your convictions/numerology to go back to the well again on that so soon, just five months after such an infamous miscue.

I wonder how many followers he can possibly have left? And how much of this story is merely the news media amplifying the ramblings of a lone voice in the wind.
