Okay, so tomorrow it is going to be the end of the world as we know it. What I want to know is … what time and who’s time zone will it be? After all, at my time of writing this, there are some people who are already on tomorrow, and when I am on tomorrow, there will be some people who will be on yesterday. Okay, amusement over
Some people have taken this seriously, and given up everything. They have gone to retreats and hotels where they can watch the End of the World from the best possible view. This is not The Forge Of God (Greg Bear 1987). There is going to be no climactic destruction of the earth. Well, not in our lifetime anyway. I will say, for some people, yes it will be the end of days, and I am sorry for the families and friends of those people. For others life will change and no longer be the same. Again, I am sorry for these people.
But the world will still keep turning. The tides will still keep flowing. The birds will still keep bombing people. If the Mayans could predict the end of the world, then did they take into account the Gregorian Calendar? did they go by the biblical calendar? (the one that had Noah aged 950) or is it some other calendar? The scaremongers will always find ways to try and scare us. Some times they succeed, but this time they are wrong. If it’s me that’s wrong, then feel free to tell me so on Saturday.
I will say though:
Like no one is watching
Like nobody cares
Like there’s no tomorrow
HAVE FUN … ENJOY LIFE
Just because the world isn’t going to end, that doesn’t mean you can’t tell that person you love them. Pluck up the guts and say it. Ask them out for a drink. Celebrate LIFE! You are alive! Be alive! Live!
And then pay for the hangover afterwards.
