If someone tells a joke but no one's left alive to hear it, is it still funny? In the case of Jon Hansen's 101 Things to do Before the Apocalypse the answer is a resounding, "Yes!"
Hansen has put together a bucket-list folks from all walks of life can busy themselves with as we near the Mayan Doomsday date of 12/21/12. Whether you're a student, parent, work a white-collar job, or you're a lazy slacker, this book has easy to accomplish tasks, all laid out in a convenient format. They range from sound advice, to suggestions of questionable morality, to outright law-breakers, and there's even a few choices for the good Samaritans mixed in there.
Again, 101 Things to do Before the Apocalypse provides a wide variety of entertaining ways to spend your final days, and though there are a few points of repetition along the way, those moments don't detract from the overall enjoyment of the book. I had fun reading this lighthearted look at the disaster awaiting us. It's a fine reminder that sometimes we take ourselves too seriously.
