Friday 1 January 2021
Early this morning, 1 January 2021, three minutes after midnight, the last human being to be born on earth was killed in a pub brawl in a suburb of Buenos Aires, aged twenty-five years two months and twelve days.
If the first reports are to be believed, Joseph Ricardo died as he had lived.
The distinction, if one can call it that, of being the last human whose birth was officially recorded, unrelated as it was to any personal virtue or talent, had always been difficult for him to handle.
And now he is dead …
Who wouldn’t want to read on, after such strong opening lines?
The questions are endless, the answers probably quite chilling …
But I need to know!
