What’s this world coming to?

So it was about a year and a half ago that I got introduced to this whole 2012 end of the world stuff that was all over the internet (I know … a bit late but that’s when I started reading stuff other than tech and games on the internet) and to be honest, my reactions were very very mixed. I’ve had conversations with tons of people on this topic and again, I’ve heard mixed thoughts. Some say that it’s outrageous and it’s never gonna happen… others say that it’s definitely coming … and others still, who simply don’t care (or are too busy to care). Personally, there was a part of me that wanted the world to end, and another part of me that told me what a big douchebag that first part was. So I was confused… as usual, and the more I tried to convince myself otherwise, the more convinced I was of it happening. But a good 6 or 7 months later, someone released a movie (2012), and that kinda sealed the topic because it was so outrageously stupid that I completely dismissed the idea… until recently..

natural_disastersNow in my head, the lead up to the end will be filled with crazy random things happening… things that no one would ever expect, or atleast that I wouldn’t expect… and the past year has been full of random $#!t… first up, what’s with all the natural disasters all over the world? It’s kinda scary when theres news of some new disaster every time I sit down to watch the news ( sure that’s not often, but still… ), Tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes… yeah if this doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will. Added to that is the whole global warming thing. I’ve always been anti global warming, and proud of it. I haven’t done anything significant, but I do what I can, when I can, and I honestly believe that if the world DOES end, it’ll be because of that…

But the one thing that absolutely conviced me that the end was coming soon wasn’t the fact that there were giant holes appearing randomly on streets (Guatemala, Argentina – 31st May 2010), or that there are volcanoes out there that were dormant for the hundreds of years and suddenly decided that now was a good time to melt things and cover Europe in ashes (Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland – 14 April 2010).. No it wasn’t any of these. It was the fact that an octopus can tell us the results of a football game before it happens… The one thing that’s still keeping me sane is the fact that pigs don’t fly yet… and I wouldn’t be surprised if I opened my window tomorrow morning and saw that too…
