And speaking of 2012…

(in which I reveal my personal enjoyment of conspiracy theories – the entertainment value is, after all, quite high, lol!)

You were, of course, aware there is a movie coming out right?

Perhaps Hollywood is trying to warn us eh?  Or, more likely, throwing fuel on the fire. *smirk* As conspiracy theories go, this is one of my favorites; that movies and tv shows are actually REAL but presented as fiction to desensitise people so the ultra-sensational won’t be impossible for them to comprehend or…to throw people off track as to what’s “really” going on behind the curtain because, after all – “that’s too unbelievable – it only happens in movies”.

Still, it’s pure genius.  Take the show “Jericho” as a prime example.  Here’s a series that takes great pains on educating (or miss-educating?  but that’s a whole other conspiracy theory, heh) the viewer on what this small town did after a nuclear explosion.  And what was going on at the time this show premiered?

National Preparedness Month – September 2006

If you’re interested, you can get a neck-deep view of this whole conspiracy theory by checking here, here, here, and here.  Entertaining reading indeed, lol!  :D

Either way…this whole 2012 thing will probably wind up being a self-fulfilled prophecy because whenever you get enough undereducated/easy to sway, panic-ridden, startled people inside the idea that <choose your 2012 end of the world scenario> is going to happen…they will rush the banks and stores, buy out the shelves disrupting the food distribution as distributors try to keep pace with panicked demand which will cause speculation and greedy a-holes will gouge the public with higher prices on everything from electricity to toilet paper and eventually, the end of civilization will happen anyway because we were trying to prepare for it.  Ironic no?

I’m a big fan of irony, but practical enough to stock up on peanut butter now- not because I fear what happens when the Mayan calendar ends, but rather because people ARE stupid and will bring about the very thing they are trying to avoid because they cannot calm the f*ck down long enough to realize that “hey man…it’s just a calendar.”

Though…as Albert Einstein is supposed to have once said, “If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live. No more bees, no more pollination … no more men!”  All I have to say is, where are the bees going?  Do they know something we don’t?  <insert creepy music>
