COME MONDAY, it is three years and counting.
Three years till what?
Three years until the end of the world! You didn't know that? Where have you been?
Dec. 21, 2012--a Friday. That's the big day.
The Mayans have supposedly predicted that this is when the end will come, and so have several other previous cultures.
Why, even that old soothsayer Nostradamus is said to have determined that this date will mark the end of time.
Of course, that makes me a little wary, because nobody seems to recognize Nostradamus' predictions until after they happen.
After the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, for example, there were people coming out of the woodwork saying "Oh, Nostradamus predicted that!" If that was true, why didn't somebody warn us ahead of time?
I guess this time it has to be different. After all, if the world comes to an end on Dec. 21, there's not likely to be anyone around on Dec. 22 to exclaim, "Well, you know, Nostradamus predicted that!"
Just a reminder that the end is coming. So be prepared!

Goody its not till a week after my birthday...
In a year holding a three, or seven,
or five, or nine, or maybe not,
Two things, might be people, or armies,
Or anything really, blades of grass,
or stoats, or crapulous charlatans
Might do something nebulous.
Insert made-up-bit here.

If we’re lucky, something will come through that will wipe us all out.
The best case scenario would be if most people were wiped out, and a few remained to rebuild in a better way. Even then, their society would go to hell as ours has.
Maybe another species needs a shot at making it on Earth. Humans are great, but over the long term we get stupid and stop thinking, because of other people.
Here’s the plan when that time comes:
1. Gone a$$hole deep in debt with all my creditors.
2. Owe as many back taxes as possible.
3. Emptied my liquor cabinet and refrigerator.
“...but over the long term we get stupid and stop thinking...”
We freely chose stupidity from the very beginning of our creation.
So your saying don’t get the extended warranty?
