I woke up a couple of hours ago. I appear to have survived the Mayan Apocalypse.
I wonder what the next cockamamie end-of-world scenario will be? And how soon it will be predicted for?*
One thing that you can confidently predict: Every generation has the conceit to convince itself that the End Times will occur during its lifetime. It's been the case since humans developed beyond the hungry wanna eat/thirsty wanna drink/horny wanna fuck stage (which, sadly, some never grew out of).
