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.
Donnie said…
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.
nonamedufus said…
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.
Chris 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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)

Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...

I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
