As Dec. 21 End Of World Nears, Men Regret Not Having More Sex (Really)
One in five Americans are concerned that the world will come to an end on Friday.
Please, world, take this 20 percent with you when you leave.
But seriously, a Harris Interactive poll commissioned by California online data-storage company Backblaze finds that Americans are indeed idiots:
Not only are 1 in 5 of us "somewhat concerned" about a Dec. 21 apocalypse, but nearly 70 percent are worried about losing digital copies of family photos if the lights go out permanently on Friday, according to results sent to the Weekly and other outlets.
Don't fret people: God tells us you can take your iPhones with you. (And, regardless, this doesn't get you out of having to buy us a gift for Christmas).
The online survey of 3,036 adult Americans this month asked about their end-of-world regrets too:
One in 4 men said they would regret not having more sex if the world does end. Only 1 in 10 women expressed the same sentiment.
