Waiting for the end

Bird on a wire

Now I have no need to remind you that there are many people out there who believe that the world will end on 21 December 2012. This is when the Mayan calendar runs out and apparently when this happens it all just falls into a heap.

This is why in 2010 we had a rush of Hollywood films about the end of the world. You would think that 2012 would be the best year for these films - but you know what Hollywood is like. They get an idea in their heads and just can’t wait.

Sure there are those curmudgeons who believe that the calendar will just start again – who knows what mumbo jumbo science they base this on.

But you know – based on experience – I am not going to indulge myself this time.

Goodness knows how many times I have sold everything I own and gone to live in the woods with my AK 47 – Bowie knife and 24,000 tins of baked beans - to wait for the end.

Sure this stopped when I cancelled my subscription to Rapture Ready - but if they have let me down so many times how could I rely on the Mayans – who aren’t even here anymore.

So I am sitting tight.

But just in case I am leaving my last minute shopping until 22 December. 


  1. Anyone with any cents and sense knows the final day is the 22nd, not the 21st. I am looking forward to later today, or in your case the past, when the date and time wiLL be 12/12/12 12:12:12

    I am not sure what I wiLL do at that moment, maybe I wiLL flip a coin.

  2. In case you didn't hear, the Pope said everything is gonna be fine.

  3. esb: on the 22nd I wonder if it US or European time?
