As we slide headlong into another election cycle, everyone’s doomsday scenarios play out across the news and internet. Depending on who you ask, Obama or Romney’s election spells the end of everything as we know it.
Another report about sunspots, toxins in our food, cancer on the rise and crazy people eating faces.
Bored now. What else you got?
I can’t help but remember one my favorite comedians, George Carlin and his take on our real impact on this planet. Make no mistake, we will probably cause our own extinction but the planet is doing just fine.
“The decay and disintegration of this culture is astonishingly amusing if you are emotionally detached from it…
I sincerely believe that if you think there’s a solution, you’re part of the problem. My motto: Fuck hope!”
I’m taking up Carlin’s mantle. He talked about rooting for chaos and disorder because he was a huge fan of entropy (which posits that disorder is more probable than order). Perhaps that’s why we as a species just can’t get it together.
Misquoting Charles M. Schultz, There are some people I like, it’s Mankind that I can’t stand.
Well, at least we put on a good show. Shit’s getting crazy and it’s only the beginning. Our entire social structure is beginning to come apart at the seams. I think that’s why rich people are behaving like looters do after the power goes out. Grabbing all they can while they can because they too know it’s all downhill from here.
See you at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. We’ll have a drink and watch it all go boom.
