Save Me John...save Me!!!
I have to say at the tender age of 44 and being one of the most practical people on the planet...(well I bulk buy and always carry an umbrella) that I am really freaked by the whole 2012 end of the world phenomena!!
I have been following a lot of the conspiracy theorists writings on the events that...on paper look pretty convincing. The whole link with the i-ching, mathmatical codes that revealed fractiles that co-related to time waves is pretty mindblowing stuff but when someone lays out 1 plus 1 equaling 2...you kind of sit up and listen...
Of course there is also the other worry...that they made a movie about it!!! Everyone knows that when they make a movie about it...it's damn near gonna happen!!! ok so it didn't happen for Lord of the rings...but you just know, when the world governments want to convey a message to the global population and they don't want world wide mass panic...they make it into a blockbuster with a cute, gorgeous hero telling it like it is to make you feel better. You can almost hear the relieved sighs 'John Cusack will save us!!! John Cusack will save us!!! praise be!!!'
I have a personal worry, in that, for the last 2 years I have had nightmares about the world flooding into oblivion. I take it that flooding will most likely be the way it ends...after all it worked before didn't it???
I have a plan to tie myself to a tree in a field (as high up as I can get). I shall be wearing a wet suit and breathing apparatus and strapped to my leg will be an inflatable lifeboat. Yeah I can see it now...popping up out of the water, inflating my boat and then waiting for Kevin Costner to come rescue me from the evil smoking lord, ala Waterworld!!!
Seriously though, it highlights how fragile things really are and hearing that a giant asteroid has hit Jupiter...well thats only 390 million miles away !!!! it's in the neighbourhood people...it's just down the street.
I have a method to calm myself when I think about world annihilation. I think of Paris Hilton and her enourmous shoe collection...surely indestructable!!!! If Paris bites it...then it's good enough for me...but then again...she'd probably be taken back to Uranus...where she belongs!!
