    Better yet, just get rid of the TV, then you won't have to watch the "news" like balloon boy, politicians mindless ramblings, scripted reality TV,
    the stock market, and other nonsense.

    Another idea from the Bible I like to remember is that your eyes are the window to your heart. What you put in front of the eyes can imbed itself in your heart, so "be careful little eyes what you see" is not only for children.

    My DH loves to watch post-Armageddon movies, and there are quite a few out there; not just Dr. Strangelove. He was watching a particular one entitled Threads, and I had to leave the room. Too much for me. It took me a week to get the stuff out of my head.
    I don't watch the Armageddon shows on the History Channel. But there's really nothing you can do about the commercials. They're there before you can hit the mute button or change the channel. And a lot of people are talking about it lately with the movie having come out. Kind of hard to stick your head in the sand entirely. Besides, it's one of those things that's kind of been at the back of my mind since I was a kid. Crazy, I know.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    Now if our elected officials tell us our bad economy will be over in two years, I'd be really worried cuz if 2012 is for real, then Obama's spending has no means to the end, just an end.

    It is near eschatology getting nearer all the time, the myth of death slowly
    arrives in to the now in tangible time; Y2K all over again. But what is true
    is only ever in the present, not some myth about the future.

    And then if our inquiry is in to the truth, no future time will fix what is not
    already here now. So will the planets turn, will the stupid warmongers
    continue to screw up the planet? Probably. Are you some kind of god
    who can change it? Probably not. So whatever about the future;
    its whether one is true to the present, where the love is, where the choice
    is about who we are, and what peace and magesty there is in this world.

    Then we are only ever alive in this profound moment, and we can change
    our minds, our hatreds and our beliefs, or drop them all together. And who
    are you behind this moment, but a mysterious ghost who will observe from
    a body for a while before it dies. Choose deeply, brother, sister, love
    deeply, and 2012 whatever, we share the seasons of the lord.

    Meh.

    If the world ends, the world ends. No sense trying to save the environment in the first place.

    Like every living things, a world is born, ages, then it dies.

    I do find it ironic that some people who are trying to save the world and her environment by recycling and stuff, doesn't do the same for their bodies, which is a planet by itself (inhabited by bacteria and whatnot).

    As for me personally, I'm hoping the world ends sooner.

    I was just wondering:

    Did the Sacred, Intelligent, all-knowing, omniscient Mayan Calendar predict the fall of the Mayan kingdom as well?

    From what I've heard (third-hand, and I haven't checked), the Mayans were significantly decimated before the armies of the East (i.e., Europe) even set foot on their shores. When Europeans (Spanish) got there it seems the culture was already significantly in decline.

    Did they predict and avoid their own conquest?

    Perhaps we'd better watch out!

    K!
