The World Is Really Ending This Time!

Categories: Open Questions

I can't stand Chicken Little types who always think the planet is coming to an a tragic end.

To me, their whining only adds to the general unpleasantness and their hot air can be detrimental to foliage.

But after taking a look at today's headlines, I'm convinced not only that the sky is falling, but that it's taking all the birds, planes, and clouds with it.

Here's what's happening in the world:

"Japan's ocean radiation reaches 7.5 million times the legal limit"

"A mysterious, contagious AIDS-like disease is spreading in China"

"After incident, the FAA orders inspection of 737s with many landings"

"Woman attacks Gaugin painting because she thinks it's too gay"

"Three more sets of human remains surface in relation to Long Island serial killer"

And I'm being gentleman enough to leave out the fact that Chris Brown has a number one record and The Kennedys is playing all week on a cable channel a lot of us have.

Could things get any worse?

Is it safe to even leave the house (or turn on the computer) with news this ghastly?

The world might end for the human race - for example, if that volcano under Yellowstone lets one rip or the earth is hit by a good sized asteroid. And even if neither of those things happen, things are probably going to get very ugly when the fossil fuels and other natural resources run out as they are currently well on their way to doing.

Yes, I had a similar thought this morning when I saw the various news items before checking my e-mail. I was shocked by some of them, then said to myself, "But the news is always awful!" then realized it seems worse than usual.

It does make you wonder if December of next year is significant - is it December 21, according to the Myan's calendar? What if we're more or less a science project for ancient aliens and our shelf life ends then? Well, might as well not have an aneurism about it. Enjoy today.

I really like that theory, Movielover. It would be hilarious if our universe was in a box stuffed under some alien teen's bed.
