After discovering the latest omen of the world’s coming demise, the Clog encourages Berkeley students to put down their books and enjoy their short-lived time on earth.

We are: the guy or girl who posted the “erotic services” ad, without a phone or valid credit card number. You are: Craigslist, the web site that allowed us to do it and reach our customer base. Now you won’t post our ads and also, you’ve entered into an agreement with attorneys general from 40 states in which you promised to sue some companies that have been helping us get around … the law. And you’re going to start handing over information to the fuzz. WTF? We thought we had a connection!

Oh, and now you’re also taking steps to help reduce human trafficking and find missing children? Thanks, but we’re looking for someone with a little more edge to fulfill our needs.

(P.S. In a presumed blessing from the irony gods, right below this article on the CBS5 site, the link in the “From Our Partners” box reads “Careers: Find a job in San Francisco.” Um, you’re welcome.)

(P.P.S. This week’s other sign of the apocalypse. No, we’re still not over it. )
