Once again, the end of the world has failed to happen. It’s now after 21/12/2012 so I guess we’re safe – for now. These predictions are starting to get a bit old. Any number of raptures have failed to materialise (although the chap in charge of that prediction has gone quiet so maybe he went on his own).

There was even a film made specially for this occasion (“2012”), which was released early enough to ensure ample profits before the world blew up, and the end of the world still didn’t happen. Stupid lying film.

This latest prediction was based on the end of the Mayan calendar – actually the end of a 5125 year cycle. Did anyone not think that maybe the Mayans couldn’t count past 5125? Or that maybe the “end of the cycle” didn’t necessarily mean the “end of the world”?

What about all these people who devised ingenious means to stay alive? Do they really want to live all alone in a dead and ravaged world? It’ll be quieter and a lot less complicated, I suppose.

Merry Christmas!

    I haven’t seen 2012 yet but last year or the year before I saw the Knowing and much more years before (and much more end of the world movies ) I saw that ghastly Schwarzenegger movie, ‘The End of the world’. I think we’re part of a very elaborate conspiracy here. Or at least at the brink of the end of good movies.

    Anyhoodle, I secretly hope more countries will follow China and lock the loons up around this time of the year.

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

      I did have a lovely Christmas, thanks. I hope you did too!
      Never fear, I’m sure that the secret “League of Dark Film Makers” will soon engineer another end-of-the-world prediction in the hopes of peddling another blockbuster film.

      “Anyhoodle” – now there’s a cool word I need to remember to slip into conversation!
