Man Spends Life Savings Prior to Upcoming Doomsday

Robert Fitzpatrick, of Staten Island, has spent his entire life savings ahead of the impending Doomsday.  That's right, a giant earthquake is going to make the earth uninhabitable this upcoming Monday, and there is nothing anybody can do about it.  If you want to set your alarm to make sure you don't miss the beginning of 'the end,' 6:00 pm sharp is when the earthquake starts -- all of this, of course, is courtesy of Robert Fitzpatrick.

Many people have different ideas as to what they would spend their life savings on if the world was coming to an end: A high end sports car, maybe?  Or perhaps a trip around the world?  While these items may have crossed Fitzpatrick's mind, he opted for a different purchase.  Fitzpatrick spent his entire life savings advertising his prediction that the world is coming to an end.  That's right.  He spent $140,000 on over a thousand subway-placards, ads on bus kiosks and subway cars.

His advertisements say: "Global earthquake: The Greatest Ever! Judgment Day May 21, 2011."  One of the advertisements can be seen below.  He says the proof in Doomsday occuring this Monday lies in his self-published book, "The Doomsday Code," and of course, the Bible.

  1. What a waste of both time and money. I think if the world was certainly ending in one week my actions would not revolve around spending money. I would just do things I always wanted to try. Besides, if the world was ending I could accumulate massive credit card debt and my life savings would have no impact on my actions either.

  2. That's funny. The Post-Gazette just did a similar story on Monday about a minister who has this Saturday pegged as the end of the world: Either way, if I'm going to go out, I'm glad we're getting Thursday's Rock Bottom visit in first.
