Those damn Mayans

22 Mar

Mayan calendar = 2012 = End of time or the end of civilization, or at least the end of Jersey Shore 🙂 🙂 🙂

With all that has occurred thus far in 2011, the talk of the aforementioned prophecy from our fine ancient Mexican inhabitants has become more and more prominent, and more and more indicative of the fact that mankind cannot turn down a good “apocalyptic” storyline. Does everyone remember the hubbub (did I really just use that word!?) surrounding Y2K, and how this unseeming programming glitch was going to spell the ultimate doom, destruction, and damnation upon this world of ours. Well it didn’t and I’m sure on January 1, 2000 (2001) more people were concerned with killing their hangover, or wondering what gym to sign up for than actually worrying about the aftermath, or lack thereof, of Y2K.

Yes, the first three months of 2011 have seen a vast array of historical events, everything from full-fledged revolutions, to cataclysmic natural disasters…but does any of this lend more to the notion that the world will come to an end in 2012…Nah! At least not in my opinion.

My main intent for the post, is to remind everyone that you and I can predict the end of the world, just about as well as any other human can…yes they Mayans were human. So instead of heading to Home Depot, or your local Army Surplus store to stock up on military grade shelving units (you know for your canned beans, and marmalade), or indestructible underground pods…why don’t you put your money to better use and buy yourself a pet Lynx, I know I will 🙂
