Time Out: End of the World Post(poned)

“In the beginning, the universe was created.  This made a lot of people very angry and was widely regarded as a bad move.”–Douglas Adams

end of the worldI’m kinda hoping this Mayan calendar thing is right as I haven’t paid my cable bill yet this month.  And I’d endure almost anything to make sure the Cowboys miss the playoffs.   On the other hand, I hate to think of all those unused frequent flyer miles I’d lose.  Either way, I’m holding off writing my next post until Saturday–just in case.



  1. If its anything like May 21st it’s going to be fun!

  2. Ha, ha! Loved this!

  3. Thanks for the “like” btw, Douglas Adams is my all time favorite!

  4. Being a Redskins fan, I commiserate with you about the Cowboys missing the playoffs, but I don’t think we need the end of the world to stop that sort of mischief. The Cowboys usually screw that up all on their own. And, personally, I think the Mayans would root for the Redskins too (or is that a racist comment? My bad!)
    Too bad about those frequent flyer miles, though. That really sucks!

    • On the other hand, the restrictions on use of the miles will probably ease up considerably! (Doesn’t that sound like something Woody Allen would say?) As for the Redskins–I’d certainly prefer them to win the division over the Cowgirls or the Ugglies. As for my Giants, I think there world ended yesterday in Atlanta, but you never know.

  5. Douglas Adams rocks. Arthur Dent would’ve been prepared for this whole Mayan nonsense… 😀

  6. I’ll with the Oreo-cle

  7. I’d put my trust in the cookie. Besides , the Mayans predict nothing. It’s just where the calendar ends which is dependent on the size and shape of the stone.

    • As Daniel comments after you, the Mayans couldn’t even predict the end of their own civilization, which occurred hundreds of years before European settlers arrived. I don’t know about death and taxes, but I’m resigned to having to pay that cable bill. Maybe I will use the frequent flyer miles to visit Machu Picchu! 😛

  8. I still don’t get how could the Mayans could’ve predicted the end of the world when they couldn’t even predict the destruction of their own civilisation. Maybe when making the calendar they ran out of room… they never would’ve imagined this much trouble would be caused by it! 🙂

  9. The Oreo looks yummy, but if the world ends, I’d rather fetch my Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, in the “DON’T PANIC” edition
