If you’re reading this, CONGRADULATIONS! You’ve survived the 9123810923809129308123-th end-of-the-world scenario! Take a brief moment to applaud yourself for this life-changing amazing achievement. You really have achieved the unachievable. Done the undoable. Nothing but pure greatness oozes out of your incredible self.
Now obviously if you do not sense the sarcasm in that introduction, the Mayan end-of-the-world scenario should have probably hit you. Just kidding, jokes aside… This ridiculous event that has swept the world off its feet has been pushed just a little too far in my opinion. Have you seen the Facebook posts? If you answered “no”, I respect you sir. Or miss… because you probably did the sane thing and logged off those social media websites for the two days revolving around the event like me!
It all started (well, exploded) with the 2009 movie “2012” (IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1190080/). To be honest, I was one of the people who were most excited about this entire 2012 end-of-the-world scenario and went crazy with all the research about it, about planet X and all that. But for the love of God people, I was 13 back then; I was allowed to be stupid! I’ve seen people as old as myself, or sometimes even older, COMPLETELY freaking out about this whole thing. Even read that some guy managed to get rid of his entire wealth and everything he owns before the “world ended”. I don’t know about you, but I would love a new laptop bought from the generous donations of a lunatic. Until he or she demand their money back of course…
It’s just mind-blowing how we as a society, an advanced global society could still believe in such myths. I mean, whether it’s the Mayan calendar fail, the 2000’s THE ENTIRE WORLD IS GONNA DIEEEE thing or that old redneck guy who told all Christians that the rapture is coming, the entertainment coming out of such ridiculous events NEVER seems to disappoint. And REALLY humans, how gullible can you be? I mean If a 70 year old man on the death’s front doors can fool a few thousand people into believing the world’s going to end, what can a 17 year old IB student do? THAT’S RIGHT. Write about that fool to gain CAS hours. (Does this still count as creativity? ^.-)
Anyway, as I come to an end, more like have nothing to say anymore, I would just like to take a brief moment to tell you lovely readers this:
The world’s ending next week… Seriously… For real, look it up on Google or Bing or isuckwithtechnologyandletmygrandsondoallthesearching.com I don’t know… Just know that your dearest possessions, your money, your house, your cars, and any other things you think I can scam you for with this could be sent directly to my address. I’d be more than happy to receive them and pray for your survival, I mean really, after all, how do you think you survived the last 1238120938910238 near-world-end events?
