Did It End?

I'm given to understand that today, 21 May 2011, is the date of the biblical rapture. This message is pre-written and scheduled to go out today, so I'm not actually online to report it.

So, was it true? Did it really all end?

Just in case it didn't, here's today's Forgotten English:


A word of Pope's coming, not to be imitated: 'Increase of years makes men more talkative but less writative to that degree I now write no letters but of plain how d'ye's.'

- Samuel Johnson's Dictionary of the English Language, 1755.
