12212012

I was browsing through my email this morning and came across this email from a friend informing me that the world according to the Mayan calendar would end on the 21 of December 2012. Now, I seriously don't know if that is true or not. There has been so many predictions that the world was going to end that by right the world should have ended centuries ago if all the prediction were actually true.

Now, I'm not saying that the 21 December 2012 prediction is not true and neither am I saying that it is. But hey, what's the big deal about it? If it really is true, then we're all going to be dead by then and there's not a thing you can do about it. Well, unless some major technological leaps can be made in the next 3 years so we can all leave this planet and go live somewhere else.

My point here is basically aimed at this friend of mine. Please don't send me crap like this, especially on a Friday which is one of my most favourite days of the week. I'd really rather not know when the world was going to end and I really don't care. If it ends, it ends. If not, then life goes on and trying to spread this end of days scenario just isn't going to achieve anything. This is my humble opinion.

What about you guys though? Would you want to know when the world was going to end? Would it make any difference in your way of life if you knew the world was going to end say a month or even a year from now. Would you make peace with yourself and sit calmly waiting for it all to end? Would you start worrying and panicking? Or would you just not give a damn and carry on with life?

Like I said, I for one couldn't care less and I really wouldn't want to know if I was going to wake up tomorrow and find out that the world has ended. I'd just rather carry on living my life the way I've been living it irrespective of whether the world was ending or not. Well, maybe with one exception, I know of a few people I would like to beat into submission just before the world really ended, if it was going to end ... LOL!

I know this is not one of my usual posts but I just had to get it off my chest! So, if you happen to be reading this, you know who you are, please try not to infuse your negative vibes on me about the world ending and that I must make peace with myself or some crap along those lines. And especially not on my favourite day of the week! Besides, maybe those Mayan's got it wrong with their calculations. They didn't have calculators back then, you know ... hahaha ...

Happy weekend folks :D

  1. I hate those type of emails and chain mails too.

    I can't be bothered with when the world is gonna end. Death is inevitable; every second moves us closer to it. So what's important to me is how I live my life :)

  2. I really dislike those chain mails that goes like if you do this...watch and see if something happens to you in the next few days or minutes blah blah blah....

    Living with a sense of purpose and knowing where you're headed makes a difference in the way one lives. My 2 cents.

  3. the world's gonna end on MY birthday?!
    oh no!


    honestly, i cant bothered by this sort of thing as well. i believe that if it's time, it's time.

    i guess people would probably die early than the said armageddon date due to worrying so much.

  4. Perky - Exactly. I don't wanna spend my days worrying about an impending doomsday (if it ever happens). I'd rather just go about doing what I normally do. When it happens though, I hope it's quick and painless :D
