This whole 2012 apocalypse thing is just plain stupid. It’s a waste of time and if anyone actually spends their time thinking about it, it’s because they’re fatalistic, whiny babies.


There will always be a doomsday theory. There was Y2K that didn’t quite pan out, and the hype behind it was insane. But guess what happened? Life went on. So what makes people think this will be any different? Dec. 21 is just another fear-filled narrative.
