Apathy, Atrophy and the End of the World...

So I was really bored today. I had nothing planned, no work to do, no idea about how to spend my day. The reason for this is that I, like so many other Christians and biblical scholars, thought that the world was going to end yesterday. Come on, the calendar date was 666, how could that not signal the end of the world. So, here's to end of the world apathy...what the hell am I supposed to do with a day that I had planned to spend watching the last judgment?

I hate the American media. It's possible that I hate the Canadian media as well, but I don't remember seeing any nonsense about the end of the world or the Apocalypse (I will save my annoyance for the popular use of this word for another day) on any Canadian news outlets so I'm letting them off the hook for the day. To all of the American media outlets that carried any story, any story at all, about the world ending or the mark of the beast yesterday I have only one thing to say. Your brain is like a muscle, if you never use it, it will eventually atrophy and all you'll have left is a useless lump of crap between your ears. Idiots.

Ah, I can sense your utter disappointment of what could have been. It reminds me of my own disappointment with the start of the new millenium! Same crap, different pile.
