Now that the election is over, there is a more important thing to consider.
I'm talking life and death.
Of the planet.
I am referring to the Mayan prediction.
Because the Mayans were not a group either the Democrats or Republicans were pandering to, their prediction of the world's end has been lost in the public consciousness.
That world ending day is December 21, 2012.
What if you wake up on a fine winter morning and find that things just aren't right -- with gravity, with the tides, with the weather, with the earth itself?
As you watch CNN you find that the world is gradually ending, parts and chunks are flipping, crashing and rolling into itself, what would you do?
Would you sit and be calm, at peace with yourself, or would you panic and run to the imaginary edge of the world, until the disaster catches you? Would you pray? Curse? Make a pact with the Devil? What?
The Mayans are wrong of course.
They are wrong, we all know that, right? Right?
And if they are not?
