The World's Ending in 2012? Now That's An Injustice!

The Month of Injustice marathon continues over at Huggy Bloggers Dot Com. Never have so many done so little for so few. But not me. Noooooo sirreee! I've been posting several blogs a week now aimed at combatting injustice, real or imagined. And it's time I draw your attention to the mother of injustices - and I'm not talking about Chelle B.

Shave my feathers and call me Chicken Little but were you aware the world was coming to an end? Well pluck me! How unjust is that? The apocalypse is upon us - you, me and the four horses you rode in on.

I'm talking about 2012.

OMG, it's the end of the world!

Here's the synopsis of the movie 2012 that hit theatres last week, where art supposedly imitates life:

Never before has a date in history been so significant to so many cultures, so many religions, scientists and governments. '2012' is an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors.

And here's an overview from Wikipedia on the year 2012, where life supposedly influences art:

The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs and proposals, which posit that cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on or around December 21, in the year 2012, which is said to be the end of a 5,125 year-long Mayan Long Count calendar. These beliefs may derive in part from archaeoastronomical speculation, alternative interpretations of mythology, numerological constructions, or alleged prophecies from extraterrestrial beings.

Holy poop, sounds serious. We have to do something to prevent the injustice of such an apocalypse.

And my wife may want to re-think what she said to me the other day.

"Oh Dufus, you're only turning 60 in 2012. It's not the end of the world"

Yeah, right! Thanks, hon.

Well, call me "apathetic". I don't think there's really a dime's worth of difference between any of the politicians. Sarah Palin in 2012 or not - stick me with a fork, I'm done.

word veri: imphork LOL!

Me-Me: I'm with you. Pretty much the same thing here in Canada. And the latest rumour is Lou Dobbs is contemplating running down there. I love American politics!

Quirks: It'll be an apocalypse enough when I turn 60!!!

My 9 year old daughter proclaimed to her CCD class (Catholicism class) that the world was going to end in 2012.


Yet ANOTHER church we can't return to.
nonamedufus said…
Moooooog: Yeah, what's with all this "world's gonna end talk" AGAIN? Remember Nostradamus?

Are you running out of religions, Moog? Won't matter. Haven't you heard? The world's gonna end in 2012. I say we all start sinning, big time.

Bring it on...! 2012 sounds good to me although I wouldn't worry too much about Palin becoming president. Perhaps a senator...I'm more concerned about if we get a tax break on groceries here if the world begins to vaporize in 2012.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Don't think you have to worry about a tax break if the world starts to vaporize. Can you say looting?
OK, we're doomed. I say we start partying now and don't quit until we go out in a blaze of glory.
That Palin 2012 sticker is one of the scariest things to the Palin/Dobbs sticker that will be coming soon. I mean, after all, didn't I hear somewhere that they got married? Yikes. It's the end of the world as we know it and I poop. I know it's not how the song goes...but if that happens, how I'll feel.

"eschatological beliefs" - I didn't know the Mayans believed in escalators. They certainly were an advanced group.

Mike: I've already started. Woo-hoo.
nonamedufus said…
UR: Hey, you've been visiting another, well-written and thoughtfully-intelligent blog, sounds like.
nonamedufus said…
Deb: Hey, the Mayans are on the up and up. Take it from ME.
Mr. Knucklehead said…
Wait, I thought the Y2K thing was supposed to wipe us out.

Someone needs to revisit the story of the Little Mayan Who Cried Apocolypse.

DK: Nah, that was 'why 2K?' not Y2K.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
