The fires in Colorado have got some people thinking it’s time for the apocalypse (time.com). Of particular interest is the Left Behind series by Tim F. LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. This 9 book series (working on 10) chronicles the end of the earth, Revelations style, and has been charted as a best seller since starting in 1995. The combined sales have reached 50 million copies, which doesn’t include me. I feel just the same way when my advisor made fun of me for not having read Harry Potter. The series starts with a bang:
So if fillings and wedding rings don’t go to heaven, does that mean people will be leaving behind their tooth phones? That might be my only chance to have one, since they’ll probably be inordinantly expensive when they come out. I’ll have to find some sinning dentist to implant it, of course, and will only be able to talk to my sinner friends for a couple of days, but won’t it be cool? Tooth phones baby!
