Positive Vibes for 2012 by Pika-la-Cynique Positive Vibes for 2012 by Pika-la-Cynique
... while I don't subscribe to the Mayan end-of-times prophecy for 2012 (December 21 is 'The Hobbit' release, the world can't end then!), I do feel horribly cynical and a little depressed at the way some things are looking up ahead for the world (you know - financial meltdown, Big Money getting away with everything, the rise of the far-right parties here in Europe, the head-banging obscurantism and reactionary sexist, poverty-bashing attitudes coming from the Republican candidates, SOPA and its ilk....) .... despite being guardedly optimistic about my personal situation ... and, more whimsically, I can't help but wonder if the sheer amount of expectations that something is due to happen in 2012 won't somehow, in some Discworldian-power-of-human-belief rules-of-narrative-causality twist, cause something to actually happen...

Anyhoo. In the light of all that, best wishes to all. :)

I've found that out since. Popculture ignorance osmosis fail.

meh, always live each day as your last. If you aren't satisfied when you go to sleep at night you have no one to blame but yourself!

My history class came to a consensus. The Mayan calendar making guy died before he could start the twenty-second.

You know, the Mayan calendar didn't account for Leap Years. This was technically supposed to happen around last July.
