This Is The End...Or Is It?
December 21st, 2012...12/21/12...The End of the World...or is it?
I love to write about things that could never happen. I love it. Supernatural events. I love to read about it too, just like all of you. I am even currently working on a novel about the beginnings of the end of the world, but I sometimes wonder where we get all of this? I mean, wasn't the world supposed to end a while ago and the guy miscalculated or something?
Remember Y2K? That was supposed to be the end of anything that ran on a computer. We were going back to the Stone Ages, people! Me, my wife, and our entire neighborhood bought the local Wal-Mart out of gallon water jugs (don't judge me, some of you did it too, am I right?) But what happened there? Midnight of the year 2000 came and went and we all went on our merry ways like nothing ever happened. Remember...this was huge news back then. I believed it too. Of course I believed that Malli Vanilli sang all of their own songs and that the Twinkie would always be here with us (I said don't judge me! :) )
We all believed it because we wanted to...we chose to...Everyone seems in an all-fire hurry to see the world come tumbling down around their ears.
In my opinion, some have chosen to believe , because the Mayans didn't choose a big enough stone to create their calendar, that the world is going to end on December 21, 2012. It's a bunch of B.S. It makes engaging fiction. It sold a great movie with John Cusack.But it's B.S.
But hey, maybe I'm wrong...
Maybe these are the last days of this great planet Earth. Maybe we all only have less than a month...What do you think? I sure would like to hear from you. Tell me what you think...Is it all going to end just like that?
In the meantime, I'm going to spend my last couple of days writing...because if the world doesn't end, I need to make my deadline...
