Clever Graffiti

This is a picture I took in my neighborhood. I’m not much of a fan of graffiti, but I thought this was clever.

Quote of the Day

My ex-girlfriend truly believes 2012 is the end of the world. She bet me 50 dollars that the world would end in 2012. I explained to her if the world is going to end, then there’s no way I could pay her. I either win the bet, or we’re all dead. With a frustrated look on her face, she doubled the bet to 100 dollars.

Forecast 2012

This what the forecast will look like in 2012:

Oh, oh – I know the answer to that question! Unfortunately, the 2012 mania is already in swing. I happened to stumble onto this movie preview the other day (put out by the appropriately named “the disinformation company”):

Another video about the same movie here. Seems to follow the same pattern set down by “What the Bleep do we know?” – put a bunch of “expert” talking-heads on video, as if they know what they’re talking about. At least this seems to be going straight to video. But, it’s not the only one jumping on the 2012 bandwagon. The History Channel is putting out “Nostradamus 2012” next week, too.

Of course, I’m not particularly worried. I’ve lived through my share of apocalypses. I lived through “88 reasons Jesus will return in 1988” (a best seller) and the slightly-less popular sequel: “89 reasons Jesus will return in 1989“. And, the Concerned Christian’s destruction of Denver, Colorado on October 10, 1998. I survived the Y2K timebomb. Then, only five months later, I survived the ultimate disaster: 5/5/2000. The end of the world in 2001. I lived through the House of Yahweh’s nuclear war on Sept 12, 2006. (I mean June 12, 2007 .. er, June 12, 2008.)

It would be nice if people would actually learn something when December 21, 2012 comes and goes uneventfully, but we’ve already got plenty of failed predictions through history, and plenty clustering around the year 2000. They haven’t learned yet.

Now all I have to do is find some people willing to bet that December 21, 2012 is actually going to be the apocalypse. Easy money.
