Well, in a couple of days it’ll be 2012 and that (other than the fact that saying 20 in front of the dates instead of 19, still, after eleven years of it, sounds weird to me) is really no big hoop dee do. ANOTHER end of the world prediction seems to be the only big excitement we can expect. Elections, disasters, wars, not my idea of excitement. End of the world prophecy? Could be exciting.
All year long we are going to be hearing about people who are battening down the hatches. Survivalists are going to come out of the woodwork. Here’s my thought. If there is going to be a truly apocalyptic event, extra canned goods aren’t going to help. There will be people gathering in “spiritual” places like Sedona to await the 21st. Didn’t they see /Independence Day/ when everyone went to wait for the aliens with signs and stuff and the aliens proceeded to blast them? You NEVER get together in large groups with others when you are trying to avoid annihilation. Even my Dad who fought in Korea knew that and refused to sleep in the actual camp with everyone because he feared attack. In fact, he slept in trees like some giant, scary, armed leopard while he was there and obviously he survived.
So, what do I think will happen on December 21, 2012? I think it might snow. I think the Mayan calendar ends because they didn’t have time to make another one before they “went away.” My calendar ends in about two days and I don’t have another one yet, does that mean the world will end at midnight on Saturday? Probably not. Am I looking forward to 2012 so I can watch everyone freak out again like they did in 1999 when they thought the world would end or at least be irreparably damaged when it became the year 2000? Yep. I can’t wait. So let your freak flags fly people. It’ll give me a lot to write about.
Have a HAPPY Day!! 🙂
