We are all gong to die some day anyway. We are all doomed. Who cares if it happens on the same day? Quit worrying about it. Live. Enjoy life. Dont spend it worrying about the inevitable.

I worrying no more so..


This Christmas, I have a wish for you, that you have a heart filled with Joy.  A wise spirit, a controlled tongue, ears that hear only good and hands, that are always willing to help others in need.  May you walk a path full of light and happiness.  May you only receive and give goodness.  May you laugh all the days of your life, enjoying each breathe as a new wonder.  May the light in you remove any darkness from another in need.  May you be a blessing to all those you meet.  May the light within you be bright and your heart always young.. May the Creator bless you and yours.

Merry Christmas

How about an asteroid collapse? We haven't seen one those, yet. How about a full-on, systemic asteroid collapse. Quick, somebody call the FED. FAST! They can print up some virtual meteorites.

I don't know about the end of the world but it appears the Zombie Apocalypse is here based on the number of brain dead souls that seem to be increasing in numbers on this planet.

The end of the world?

This is tied up in the inability of man's ego to grasp that it will vanish on death and that all else will continue and change without him.

This is the same driver behind "global cooling", "global warming", and now "climate change".  The poor masses are bamboozled into the idea they, as a species, are actually having a significant impact on the astronomical forces behind millions of years of weather change by those seeking to achieve more power by implementing more "solutions".
