The End of the World
Thursday, Sep. 29, 2005; 10:50 AM

What if there were a doomsday Web site, where if anyone logged on, it would instantly annihilate the world in a fiery inferno? And what if the url were published in a newspaper? You know, something like "Log on to "www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/mmedia/endofworld.html" (this page) and the world will end? How long would it take some irresponsible jackass to do that?

For Gene Weingarten, not too long. Listen.

Editors Note: This recording is played at half-speed and will not in and of itself end the world.
