Well it is December 21 in many parts of the world and guess what? We are still here. Of course the day isn’t over, but I highly doubt that lady at Walgreens advising me to buy all the canned goods I can afford is even remotely sane. My bet? The Mayan civilization collapsed and they stopped making the calendar or they just ran out of room. I’m not too worried about it. If we die we die, but I don’t think we will. I think it’s just another Y2K scare. Good news for the companies who make bottled water and generators and another reason for conspiracy theorists to panic. It is a reminder, however, to count the blessings we do have. One thing I can say… I have a shit ton of money’s worth of Christmas presents under the tree. If something does happen, I’ll be pissed I spent all that time wrapping.
