Shall I compare thee to a winter's day?

With apologies to Mr. William Shakespeare

Shall I compare thee to a winter's day?

Thou art more cold and maketh me desperate

Hailstorms deter not the lone wolf on its way

And winter's lease leaveth no room for hate

Sometimes too deep run the crevices of lust

And oft is its crimson complexion dimm'd

And no fair from fair will ever rust

By chance nor nature's changing course untrimm'd:

But thy eternal winter shall not fade

Nor lose possession of that poison that thou owest

Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade

For Death himself is but thyself slowest

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,

So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

In other words, I'm crazy about you when I know I shouldn't be.

Doomsday? Really?

Apparently the world is going to go kaboom on December 21 (or 23, depending on who you ask), 2012 (conveniently a few weeks after the US elections).


Believers will tell you this is because the last day of the Mayan
Calendar falls on this date.


As absurd as this... uh... "prediction" sounds, there are people out there who seem to be taking it very, very seriously. Just do a random search for 2012 and you'll see what I mean.

So if the world as we know it is really going to end in another three years, WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE GOING TO DO TO SAVE OUR ASSES?

I mean, I'm not saying I believe this stuff. It may or may not happen. It could happen in 2012 or even 3012. Point is is we just don't fucking know! Heck, it could happen even TOMORROW.

What have we, as a world, and as a species done to prepare for such an eventuality?

Not much obviously.

Hopefully at least this (KICK ASS) movie will wake us up:

2012 by disaster movie pro Roland Emmerich.

Prepare to drool. It looks fuckin' amazing.
