12212012

I have a perverse need to thumb my nose at the end of the world slated to occur on the Winter Solstice, December 21, 2012.


In case you don't know, we will go kaboom on that date, as foretold by the Mayans and Nostradamus. I, for one, have planned all of my life choices based on these two extremely correct predictive sources, especially since they both agree completely on this topic.


The latest disaster I have heard suggested to end the current human reign on our little blue marble is rapid tectonic plate shifts. New York City will be where the North Pole currently resides and Alaska will straddle the equator. Cool, huh? Other sources of our demise include being hit by an off course rogue planet, the extinguishing of our sun's radiant power just because it's old, Satan and his minions overrunning our innocent selves and Tribbles.


We should begin lobbying to have that Friday declared a world wide holiday. If we are going to die, we should get the day off to spend with those we care most about and while I enjoy my co-workers, I'd rather be with family. 


I plan on sparking a bonfire, lounging in my beach chair while sipping a hot chocolate laced with Godiva® liquor as the fun house ride deposits me somewhere in the arctic zone. How will you be spending your last day of existence?

  1. I'm sure I'll be spending my last day running from Tribbles. *shiver*

  2. Drinking beer, eating pupu's and watching naked hula dancers on the beach

  3. Probably sitting around the house, watching soaps and eating chocolate covered bonbons -- you know... the usual.

  4. Well, if it was really true, and I knew it was coming, I'd partake in activities to guarantee I wouldn't feel it - and just think, I wouldn't even have a hangover :-)

  5. "rapid tectonic plate shifts"
    That is if you believe in conventional science.

    The concept of a growing Earth seems an interesting concept.
    A likely event for Dec 21 2012 could be the mother of all solar flares. Others discuss the concept that we are coming to the end of this particular human cycle.

    Google OOParts - fascinating stuff.
    Peace

  7. And after that, the next end of the world is scheduled for 2051, which we may not live long enough to enjoy that one, or be too old, so we'd better enjoy this one. Y2k sort of fizzled out on us.

  9. Ha, Tom! I'll be 88 in 2051, or something like that, but if I'm still here, I hope to still find humor in it.

    Oh, let's see...a nice IPA, some good cheese and nacho chips will do me really good on my last day. Nothing like comfort food for the end of times:)

  11. I already asked for a day off for the end of the world when the French were going to blow us all up with their black hole gizmo.

    I said I needed time to go and buy new shorts because I was going somewhere very very warm for a very very long time.

  15. Champagne, hot dogs and bonbons, and a personal masseur, just like every day.

  16. I think I'll get as worked up about 2012 as I did about the millennium.

  18. Actually, I guess I'll continue on doing whatever I'm doing...just in case it doesn't happen. :)

  19. It's all so interesting, isn't it?

    I like to read what people have to say about it, but I remember the Y2K debacle very well.
