End of the world parties
Everyone is planning their "end of the world" parties for next week when the world will supposedly end on the 21st. Here is the problem though, everyone is planning to have them ON the 21st, generally in the evening. Seems to me this is really poor planning because we don't know exactly what time the world is going to end. It would really suck to have a big party planned and then never get to have it because the world ended an hour before it started.
So here is my plan, I am going to party hard on the 20th, drink myself into a major hangover and then on the 21st I am going to the airport to go see my brother and his family in Mexico for Christmas. That way, when the end of the world comes I won't be sad about it. If the end of the world comes early I will be hung over in an airport buying $12 bloody mary as my hair of the dog. If the world ends at that moment I will welcome it with open arms. If the end of the world comes late I will already be in hell (mexico) so I probably won't even notice.
If you know when the world is going to end, don't plan on doing something fun at that moment, plan to be done having fun and in a condition where you want to die. Anyone here planning on attending any end of the world parties?
It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken
