“I don’t believe it. It can’t be real. It’s a hoax perpetrated by Big Industry to sell more generators.”
Ah yes, the words I used to described the millennium scare. You remember the millennium? All computers were going to rise up and punish woman and mankind for having left them insufficient space to keep track dates.
I spent that evening with family. It wasn’t so I’d be with them at the end. That’s what we did every year. I took my guitar and played into the night in celebration of … my father in law’s birthday. He was born late on the evening of December 31st, or early on January 1st, no one was sure which.
The rapture was not much different except that I had nowhere to go that evening. Didn’t matter, I was sure I’d have to get up the next morning and work. And I was right.
But what’s up with ending the world on the 21st? Wouldn’t today have been a far more auspicious date? 12-12-12 seems like the perfect date to convince the world it will end on. Someone really dropped the ball there.
I doubt the world will be ending anytime soon. But if I’m wrong, I give you permission to scold me afterwards.
I doubt the world will be ending anytime soon. But if I’m wrong, I give you permission to scold me afterwards. Please wait til the actual end of the world has occurred though, so that you have absolute, incontrovertible proof and can avoid any embarrassment for yourself. Nothing worse than having to say “Oh, we’re all still here, sorry about that lecture-ous diatribe … heh heh. As you were.”
But, I do in fact have some pointers for those of you who, like me, have ADHD and are wondering how to prepare for the coming of the possible end of all life as we know it. Interested? Read on:
So, there you go, my suggestions for the rest of your life, whether it’s soon over or whether you have to see it through to its natural end. And I do think it’s likely that we’ll all be here on the 22nd. We have quite a mess to clean up, I don’t think we’ll get off that easy, with the world as we know it just ending. Nope, not us.
