Actually, I Do Feel Pretty Fine, Thanks For Asking

51 Stories With Titles Suggesting They May Have Something to Do With the End of the World 

Even if you never figured out all the words, I bet you’re already humming that catchy R.E.M. tune in your head:

That’s great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane
And Lenny Bruce is not afraid…

 Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs, don’t misserve your own needs
Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt, no, strength
The ladder starts to clatter with a fear of height, down, height
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
And a government for hire and a combat site
Left her, wasn’t coming in a hurry with the Furies breathing down your neck

Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane, fine, then
Uh-oh, overflow, population, common group
But it’ll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the Rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched

It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine…”
