And I feel fiiiiiine!
In case you haven’t heard yet, the end of the world is scheduled for 8 days from now. As a result, R.E.M. has been stuck in my head for about 3 weeks. Watch it now: It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I feel fine)
Be honest: You don’t know the fast part either. And now that song is stuck in your head too.
But seriously. If you are at all worried about the world ending on December 21, 2012, I have some important information for you:
And, Philosoraptor has a great point:
So, as I have proven, the world is not ending next Friday. But just in case, I am going to share two things with you. 1. a survival guide. 2. My 2012 World End To-Do list.
(Special thanks to the Official 2012 Survival Guide site for these survival suggestions!)
The first item you need to buy is a solar powered cell-phone charger. Why? Because if the world ends, you’re gonna want to Tweet about it.
Now, I am slightly concerned about the ‘cosmetic use only’. Despite this being found in the Official 2012 Survival Guide, I’m not sure it will actually protect one’s lungs. This raises quite a few questions: if it’s military surplus, were the military gas masks for cosmetic use only? can we trust 30 year old masks manufactured in east germany? what cosmetic use does this gas mask actually have?!!
Important questions, I know. But we don’t have time for all that. Like I said, there are only 8 days, 17 hours and 27 minutes to go. Which brings me to my next point,
My 2012 World End To-Do list:
1. Bake ginger cookies
2. Take down the Christmas tree (it’s a fire hazard)
3. Finish my hot chocolate mix (no point in keeping that)
4. Travel to my parent’s house. (I’m unsure that being on the eastern seaboard of the USA is the safest place to be, but I’m also a bit concerned about Canada’s military response capabilities…)(Plus, there’s a way greater chance of fresh-baked cookies upon my arrival there)
And just in case you don’t want R.E.M. stuck in your head for the
next 8 days rest of your life on earth, here’s a meme that made me laugh loudly in an empty apartment.
