2012 is supposedly the year the world ends, so we’re all fucked. It hasn’t happened yet,though as far as I know, so there’s still time for me to do the things I’ve always wanted. Like buying a pet hermit crab or going to the moon or becoming a famous opera singer.
To be honest, I don’t really believe the world is going to end yet, I think it’s a load of bollocks. The only way I reckon it could end is if some massive meteorite trundles into us and disintegrates the planet or there’s an alien invasion and they kill us all and live on our planet instead. And after all, wouldn’t those people at NASA know if a meteorite was on its way to us, by looking through their massive telescopes? So I don’t think we’re all going to die. Yet. There is always a chance of nuclear war breaking out, though…
However, a recent incident in Russia nearly proved me wrong. People were just getting on with their lives; driving, walking around etc when a massive explosion erupted just outside St. Petersburg which lit up the sky and made everybody shit themselves and run to their nearest church declaring their faith. They thought it really was the beginning of Armageddon or an alien invasion. It happened at around 9 in the morning, and one guy managed to capture the explosion while he was driving. Fittingly, he was listening to ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon. Good thing this didn’t happen over here as the cops would have arrested him for using his mobile while driving by now, or would even have nabbed him for listening to such a depressing song.
Pretty cool explosion, right? Cars were even apparently braking everywhere as the explosion was so awesome it knocked out street lights.
An explanation for it all soon came to light, though, and the churches soon emptied. Instead of the explosion being the start of the end of it all, it turned out to be some real shit: a technical malfunction at an electrical power plant. I don’t know how that would cause an explosion to be that big, but what I do know is that we’ve still all got a bit of time left to enjoy ourselves so I’m gonna go and grab a San Miguel and listen to some Bee Gees.
