Thanks to Robotic Rhetoric for his humorous essay regarding the end of the world. If the world does come to an end in 2012, I hope I can find the humor in the situation. It makes meltdown bearable if one can laugh in the face of oblivion.
Many are paying a lot of attention to unusual happenings around the globe. YouTube is full of videos on the subject.
Robotic Rhetoric addressed the ending of the Mayan Calendar and the prediction of the end of the world. I smiled my way through his editorial and replied as follows:
IMHO, the guy running the Mayan calculations got a massive migraine, the carver of the calendar stones got carpal tunnel and tennis elbow, and the rest of the committee took a cruise to the Galapagos. Then their Captain ran the ship aground. Hence, the end of the Mayan calendar.
