It’s my understanding, based on reliable sources, that the world is going to end on 12/21/12.
So that means I actually have less than a year left, and I haven’t even started getting into shape! Of course, one might also take the stance that there is little point to getting into shape if it’s all going to blow up in our faces on December 21.
The sad thing is, the way things are going, it really doesn’t seem entirely beyond the realm of possibility that 12/21/12 could be a watershed date. I mean, things have gotten really, really crazy.
Consider the New Hampshire legislature which has been busily dismantling state government and the safety net for months now. This was a process that got started under Craig Benson – the governor who put his paramour, Angela, in charge of homeland security for New Hampshire – but refused to pay for essentials like education, as I recall.
Fast-forward to today. I imagine the Craig Benson is enjoying a posh life somewhere, quietly (or not so quietly) spending money and playing golf, and screwing around with Angela or some other such person. What he started is being pursued with a fervor even more unhinged and even less informed than what he brought to the project of destroying New Hampshire.
It’s been a couple of years now that the entire 400-something member NH State Legislature has been composed of a large percentage of proudly-know-nothing-Bible-thumping-tea-drinking yahoos who happily pass laws allowing them to tote their guns into the Legislative Office Building, while simultaneously working to outlaw dangerous practices like gay marriage.
In their view, when the world ends in 2012 it will be because they somehow failed to eradicate the evil that keeps them awake and sweating (and one has to assume, fantasizing) at night. In reality, if the world ends in 2012 it will more likely be because there are too many guns and we’ve all shot another.
So my question is, should I exercise or not?
