You know, I'm beginning to think that there might not be any actual evidence or proof that the world is going to end. It's almost disheartening. Y2K fizzled out without so much as a single satellite lobbing nuclear missiles at us. The Mayan's just needed a new desk calendar. And don't even get me started on the rapture.
In fact, the only thing that really seems to succeed is the money to be made on the end of the world. Armageddon made over $500 million and 2012 made over $700 million! If ever there was a sign that people like the idea of an apocalypse more than they believe in one, the fact that these movies continue to be made and make huge cash is it.
Here's my New Year's Resolution: I'm going to jump on the next big end of world scenario. I don't know what it is, and frankly I don't care because it doesn't really matter. And if I can't find one that I like then I'll make one up of my own. It doesn't seem to be very difficult. Maybe something like if you look at The Sphinx through some Spanx you can see the date of the end of the world written in the stars.
Whatever it is, I'm going find it and I'm going to cash in on it. So watch out for my line of doomsday scenario branded tea cozies and pens.
Why should the end of the world be such a downer?
Happy New Year everyone, and a Merry Pre-Next-Big-Apocalypse-Prediction!
