"It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine...."

“A man is like a novel: until the very last page you don't know how it will end. Otherwise it wouldn't be worth reading.” ― Yevgeny Zamyatin, We
     According to some interpretations of the Mayan calendar the world ends on December 21st, 2012. You have about two weeks to fully enjoy yourself or better yet, BEGIN enjoying yourself. NASA released an educational video ealier this year that explains the Mayan calendar reassuring thousands of concerned citzens there is no evidence a meteor is whizzing through space to destroy the Earth. Much to my surprise there are hundreds of governments around the globe issuing statements to calm anxious populations. Here in the United States, I've explored a few online news stories wih the pleasure of discovering comments by trolls and sincere posters.. Here are a few sample quotes from an "end of the world" article: "I bet a guy $1000 the world doesn't end on 12/21/12.I can't lose either way."******* 
" What about the aliens that are going to attack us and billionaire, Robert Bigalow knows the secrets !!!"******* 
"Buy an island to live on, the zombies cant swim, the downside is you will eventually run out of Twinkies and starve.." 
********"Just in case it is true don't pay your bills until January."
*********"The world better end on the 21st. I've done no Christmas shopping this year."
******"I think I died long ago and this is my eternal punishment."
*****"Wow! If they can promise the world won't end why can't they promise a budget?"
******* " If the world were going to end I'd eat a load of chocolate, cakes, drink beer, then hire ten female escorts to send me out with a bang!"*****I adore, Earthings!
*** ******* Have you ever thought about how you would spend your last day on earth? What would you do? Who would you spend it with? Would you cry in a corner or make love? The truth is we never know when our time will come. Any of us. Appreciate and be grateful for the moments you have right now. Let perspective change your worldview rather than unfounded meteors, alien attacks or doomsday prophecies.
