    Well, the end of the world is now one hour and five minutes late Midwestern Time. I’d make a sandwich, but I’m on a diet.

    The title of this post made me go read C.S. Lewis’ essay, “The World’s Last Night”; this passage struck me (apologies for the length):
    __________________________

    “The doctrine of the Second Coming teaches us that we do not and cannot know when the world drama will end. The curtain may be rung down at any moment: say, before you have finished reading this paragraph. This seems to some people intolerably frustrating. So many things would be interrupted. Perhaps you were going to get married next month, perhaps you were going to get a raise next week: you may be on the verge of a great scientific discovery; you may be maturing great social and political reforms. Surely no good and wise God would be so very unreasonable as to cut all this short? Not now, of all moments!

    But we think thus because we keep on assuming that we know the play. We do not know the play. We do not even know whether we are in Act I or Act V. We do not know who are the major and who the minor characters. The Author knows. The audience, if there is an audience (if angels and archangels and all the company of heaven fill the pit and the stalls) may have an inkling. But we, never seeing the play from outside, never meeting any characters except the tiny minority who are “on” in the same scenes as ourselves, wholly ignorant of the future and very imperfectly informed about the past, cannot tell at what moment the end ought to come. That it will come when it ought, we may be sure; but we waste our time in guessing when that will be. That it has a meaning we may be sure, but we cannot see it. When it is over, we may be told. We are led to expect that the Author will have something to say to each of us on the part that each of us has played. The playing it well is what matters infinitely.”

    Everything I had is now gone. As I sit naked in front of this library computer, it’s comforting to know the world will leave me with what it gave–nothing.

    It has been an honor living with you ladies and gentlemen.

    P.S. This whole myan shit better be right cause I’m fucked otherwise.

    I sure would like to see them do Survivor: Detroit, or Great Race to get the hell out of Michigan or do an MTV reality show there. But that would be putting Socialist failure clearly in the spotlight of pop culture and that’s a big hair No No.

    “….But we think thus because we keep on assuming that we know the play. We do not know the play….”

    It’s those who DO think that they not only know the play, but also think they can re-write it mid-show – who also happen to be in a position that can cause great harm to society by their actions – that are the biggest threat to civilization.

    Sure am glad there is no one like that in our part of the world (/sarc off)

    Regarding the EPA story:

    “…stormwater came into contact with dust, feathers or small amounts of manure on the ground…”

    There are some Great Blue Herons and a flock of ravens who roost in some cypress trees in our neighborhood. The street underneath the trees looks like someone’s been splattering white paint all over it. And when it rains, the water goes down the storm drain which is marked “No dumping. Drains to ocean.” I had better get the EPA on those darn manure spreading birds.

    Lurch got nominated for Sec of State. Just heard 0bamas’ endorsement of him on the radio, do any people actually believe this crap?

    I want to see someone play that {{{B O N G}}} sound effect from the Adams Family at a press conference before they ask him a question.

    About Michael the Hutt –

    And I was fascinated…of how fear is used…

    Just like all of your “movies.”

    And [most guns are] in the suburbs and rural areas where there is virtually no crime and no murder. So why is that?

    Has it ever dawned on you Mr. Chins that it is the reverse that is true? There is virtually no crime in the suburbs and rural areas because that’s were most of the guns are?

    I think the plaque and cholesterol have narrowed his arteries so much there’s practically zero blood flow to his brain. Or whatever’s in his cranium.

    The end of the world didn’t happen and here we are in overtime and are given a link to Michal Moore wondering why there are no shootings in places where there are guns and therefore they should give them up because there is no crime, but they hold on to them because of the blacks. HOLY SHIT the world did end — I’m sure of it — because that’s twilight zone brain dead zombie type thinking… (cue twilight zone theme)..

    Bastards, a big piece of my retirement planning was the world ending December 21, 2012. Now what the hell am I supposed to do. Hmmm, I wonder whether the braintrust behind Canada’s CPP and the US Social Security also included this in their actuary studies of the plans fitness?

    @MJA thank you that helps. But every blog has a set of allowed HTML code and smiley faces that are “built in” some blogs post the list, some don’t I was curious. Unfortunately I typed in the wrong email address yesterday so I don’t know if anyone did send them.
