Really any event, not necessarily where 60M people die, that breaks people out of their myopic thinking about October 14th. The world will probably exist on the 15th and you'll still be alive if the UPS guy delivers your phone then instead of Friday. God only knows how we managed to survive to this point without one. Even next week we'll still be amongst the unnoticeable few that actually have an iPhone 4s. Not unnoticed because it looks the same as an ip4, but unnoticed because nearly 7 billion (with a b) people didn't preorder one, don't know about them or don't care. Yet somehow, life goes on. Yes, I know that mine is in Kentucky right now but if it was still sitting in a cargo port in Hong Kong it'd be no big deal. I'd use the extra few days to remember all the good times I had with my 3GS before tossing it aside for the younger, sleeker model. Maybe even watch the Lions rock the Bears, have a drink with a friend of just watch the wind blow through the trees on a fall day, happy to have ATT and won't get interrupted by a phone call whilst doing any of these things.
