The End

the end

Plug-in electrical timers, of the sort widely available in DIY shops and supermarkets are connected together in series so that an extremely long delay can be set. Nobody knows when the world will end. A trawl through books and the internet suggests that 1000000000000 years from now is when scientists think the universe will expire. Surprisingly, only nine plug in timers are needed to set this enormous delay. Nine plugs with nine leads plugged into nine timers in nine sockets all arranged in a neat row in a protective clear box, are connected to another identical box which houses a neon sign simply reading ‘The End’.
