It's the end of the world as we know it ....

It's the end of the world as it we know it .... Or not.

Admittedly, there are some freaktastic things happening right now. Birds falling the sky all over the world, hundreds of thousands fish dying and other marine life just keeling over for no known reason. 

That's some scary stuff.

And if you're like me and have a vivid imagination, it's not too hard imagining this happening.

Where in the hell is Sam and Dean Winchester when you need them? They would know what to do with the mass animal death. 

Look, they can save the world shirtless and in towels. Only they can. They  have experience with this ....

Alright, enough with the pictures. Is this it? Is the end nigh? Did the Mayan's completely screw up the calendar and the world isn't ending in 2012 ... or is this just the beginning of a global catastrophe of epic levels? 
So I took a look at my pantry to see if I'm prepared for the legion of doom. I have no water, very little canned good, and probably even less survival skills. I've been banking on a zombie apocalypse and not the second coming. 

I'm so screwed. 

But wait .... Kirk Cameron says this isn't the apocalypse. Sigh. Huge Relief. 
Sorry. Couldn't resist.

It could be something different. It could be aliens. Like in Independence Day or something. Maybe the birds are flying into shields. I have no answer for the dead fish thing, but if it's aliens we are still probably screwed.  Considering their technology and intelligence would make us seem like ants, they probably aren't here to make friends. So please do NOT go atop a building with a welcome sign. You're an idiot, if so. You're going to die.

Then there's the conspiracy theories involving the govt. testing chemicals, killing some official dude, etc. I'd be more inclined to believe this theory but then there is another. Okay. One more picture. I found this an it made me laugh. 


But there could just be a scientific explanation for all of this. A shift in the temperature, a change in our ecological system. Possibly all the pollution and bad stuff has hit the tipping point and mankind just wiped thousands and thousands of animals? Or is it disease, a virus? Apparently, mass animal death isn't that uncommon, but in the age of Google, we see more cases of it then we every did before. (Google is mapping the mass animal deaths by the way. Thanks Google for freaking me out even more)

What do you guys think is going on? Should we all quit our jobs, drink and be merry? Should we start thinking more about our impact on the frail ecological system? Or should we just watch some Jersey Shore?


  1. Thanks for feeding my obsession. Ugh! I literally stay awake at night sometimes thinking about this stuff. When we lived in NJ, I alternated between worrying about the chemical plants in Newark and wondering why the hell Manhattan office buildings needed to be so well-lit at 3 a.m. There can't be a good reason for it, can there? Although perhaps I can some comfort in the fact that Kirk Cameron doesn't think it's the Apocalypse yet.

  2. Ummm... I don't know. I think we just KNOW a lot more about this kind of stuff now then we used to because all the information is more readily available to us.

  3. I think we should not watch Jersey Shore...but we should watch more Supernatural and take after their example and save the world shirtless. But only if we look like Sam and Dean. If we don't, we should keep on our clothes and buy a sawed-off as our first step to building our very own basement panic room! Complete with Devil's Traps. :)

  4. Great post..I have a somewhat rabid obsession with the boys of Supernatural (especially Dean). New follower-Stop by and say hi if you get a chance!
