This is all totaly irrelevant, as we all know that comets signal the
end of the world anyway (whenever a commet is predicted, the papers are
always full of "end of world stories"). Add to that that yesterday
was April 1, and I'm sure you'll agree that the world is going to
end April 30 (and that Bo, teleported to the comet, will rule Hale-Bopp).
