and I feel fine. Just in case the world really is ending, please read this. I love to see the page views numbers go up and I want to die happy.
According to Robin Harp, who was interviewed by the Southern Chester County Weekly, “We’re in our final days,” Harp said in an interview near his RV parked at a deserted service station off Route 1 just outside Kennett Square. “There is absolutely no possibility that this won’t happen. There is no question mark.” Oh, well, if Robin Harp says it, it must be true. He is after all parked at an abandoned gas station holding a cardboard sign. Why wouldn’t we believe him? Actually, I think God speaking through a guy standing by the freeway with an RV and a cardboard sign is a sign of the apocalypse. If God really wanted us to know something I’m pretty sure we’d get a text about it. The article goes on to say that Harp is one of “thousands” of “messengers” worldwide who are predicting the apocalypse to begin this Saturday. Hmmm….I wonder if I should hold off on mowing my lawn…
The prediction of the world ending comes from a loosely organized Christian group. Apparently the Christians didn’t check their Mayan calendar which apparently has set aside a date in November 2012 for the end of the world. Nor did they speak with Michael Stipe of R.E.M. who predicted the end of the world in 1987. If Lenny Bruce is not afraid, neither am I.
For those of you skeptics who are reading this via the link on my Facebook page you can go right back to Facebook to join the page titled “Post Rapture Looting” which offers this invitation, “When everyone is gone and god’s not looking, we need to pick up some sweet stereo equipment and maybe some new furniture for the mansion we’re going to squat in.” By Wednesday afternoon more than 175,000 indicated that they would be “attending” this “public event.”
In the news yesterday a current day Mayan leader said, “Dude, seriously, I am so sick of hearing about this. If the world does end, don’t try and pin it on us. Damn, did you ever think that maybe the guy making the calendar just died, got laid off, or was fired for stealing office supplies?” I may be paraphrasing a bit, but that was generally the gist of what he said. He also pointed out that in some other carved-in-stone tablets another Mayan referenced the year 4077. He didn’t reference a specific day, but I’ll be pretty damn mad if the world ends right before my birthday again. My cell phone, pda, and computer all have calendar functions and all of their calendars go past Dec. 21, 2012 so there’s all the proof you need that the world is not going to end in 3 years. In fact, I have written a post and dated it to be released to my blog for Dec. 22, 2012. Suck on that you Mayan calendar nutjobs.
