Now I didn’t expect an asteroid to destroy the world but I was looking forward to SOMETHING. More realistically, the Mayans did not predict the end of the world, just the end of the cycle. We made it into something sensational because it is human nature to hate life and desire death and destruction.
Besides, it was fun.
Now we have a major problem. There is nothing left to look forward to. There’s no point in living because it just goes on and on ad infinitum. Boring boring boring nothing nothing sucks.
I figured our best chance in a world-changing event might be terrorists taking advantage of the hype and setting off a dirty bomb somewhere in the US or maybe taking out the power grid. But no. I don’t think we have much to fear from terrorism. They just don’t have their act together. The best they can do is small stuff. If you really step back and look at it 9/11 was small. Just one building complex and some people. Small potatoes. You need to take out a whole city if you want to change things. Taking down the grid even for just a few days would really get people’s attention and perhaps wake them up.
We are a few days from the “Fiscal Cliff”. Some people seem to think it is a big deal. I don’t understand it or care but maybe it is a big deal. They say if things aren’t changed by January 1st the cliff could take us into a new depression. That could be fun. So far it is not looking good for finding a solution but they always make it better at the last minute. Boring. I’m hoping they don’t so things will get interesting again.
The world is not really having any energy crisis. Plenty of oil and gas. Gas prices are relatively low.
More people than usual are going crazy and shooting up malls, theatres and elementary schools. This may be a rising trend. This may be interesting but doesn’t affect me other than boring me with speculative reporting.
The aliens haven’t revealed themselves. I was hoping for that.
The weather is warmer than usual. Global warming continues to increase. It sucks and is not very exciting. Like watching paint dry.
The worst part is that I have to go back to work next week. Mundania in suburbia continues to the maxima.
Anyone else disappointed?
