Some Thoughts on the “End of the World”: May 21, 2011

If you’re reading this on May 22, 2011, then the world didn’t end on May 21, 2011.  Silly.

Anyway, why do people want to drive themselves nuts about the apocalypse?  No one can be sure about when our lives will meet their collective ends.  It’s simply better to live our lives one day at a time.  Just prepare in the manner of your choosing; it can be religious or not.

Sharing a few silly ideas that crossed my head:

  1. Is it possible that a lot of people lost their virginity in the stretch of May 20 to May 21 because they didn’t want to die a virgin?
  2. If a lot of people let go of themselves and ate whatever they want, regardless of dietary restrictions, they’re most likely in the hospital right now.
  3. If a lot of people binged on alcohol — one last drink before they pass — chances are, they killed themselves DUI.
  4. Harold Camping has a better chance predicting a winning lotto combination than predicting the end of the world…I think.

  1. Found your blog by renxkyoko… cool.
    Well, now that the NEW and IMPROVED date is October 21, 2011, I can’t wait to see what he will say when nothing happens on that day. LOL

  2. LOL
    I just blogged about the Rupture!

    For a moment there, it got me just a tiny bit worried. I mean, who knows, right ? And i was like, oh, nos!, what if i’d disappear ? I want to skydive, I want to finish Skip Beat, I want to whatever I have not done yet…. bummer.
    (=.=)

      1. nah, I was at work for a few hours, then came home, took a nap, blogged, and read manga. Routine, routine, routine……. I didn’t even notice the day was over and Rupture didn’t happen.

  3. Those are good points–if it really were the end of the world, or at least if people truly believed that, they would do tons and tons of stuff that is stupid, bad for them, and bad for other people–because if you’re dead in 5 hours no matter what, it doesn’t matter.
    But then the world doesn’t end and we have more pregnant teenagers (no one’s going to use a condom at the end of the world!) and bad allergic reactions and everything else you said.

    1. LOL. I totally forgot about the condoms!

      One thing’s sure. All it takes is one nut to follow another nut to start a movement. 🙂

      Cheers! Thanks for dropping by.

    1. Hey, Angela. Good point. Don’t just drink anything that will get you numb. Drink something to please the palate. 🙂

      Cheers! Thanks for dropping by.
