As you may have noticed, we're just about a year from the 2012 apocalypse, which is definately real and happening*.  As you also may have noticed, the news seems to be chock-full of stories that just a few years ago would have seemed incredible, but with the impending return of Quetzalcoatl, have now become about as shocking as a major sports upset.   

Example: A politician named Weiner is caught emailing a picture of his genitals.

Please share stories you think signify the end of days. They don't have to be grim, either. Here's mine, which I think is kind of cute:

*satire... you never know, some people might not get it.

Lady gaga is viewed as a revolutionary, trendsetter and a non conformist for using the ideas started by Bowie, expanded by Madonna and turning that into meat dresses. The leader of the largest conformity since ICP. Wait, worlds not ending people are just stupid.

Tom cruise somehow got a deal for another mission impossible movie.
Stephanie Meyers, no more need be said.
A calendar somebody got tired of writing or died before they could finish it ends on 2012.

I'm actually writing an essay about Lady gaga. Well it's not about her, but she's in it. My thesis is on the upcoming generation and how they're fucked because of our generation's idiocy. 

Signs of the apocalypse you say? The number one searched thing in 2011 was 'Rebecca Black - Friday'. This is also in my essay.

The fact that people watch those "Desperate Housewives of Hell's Kitchen" or whatever reality shows.  Then the dumb whores on those shows make song singles and actually take themselves seriously.

The fact that that Britney Spears is still around after 10 years and is referred to as "a living legend" by the media. 

The fact that the media actually cares what Justin Bieber and his girlfriend do every weekend and takes picture of them kissing and this is considered news.  

The fact that Ashton Kutcher is considered an actor and Two and a Half Men is one of the highest rated sitcoms in America.

I like that Katy Perry song about Friday in response to that Friday song.

I think I knew the world was about to end when I saw that girl singing "Fuck me Ray Bradbury"

... I don't mean "people's tastes are so terrible the world must be ending."  I'm thinking more along the lines of, like, cannibalism for entertainment:

Heard this report on the news about a guy who buried his wife alive. Luckily, she escaped by cutting her binds with her engagement ring.

When he got caught, his excuse was, "I was just trying to scare her."

 

People are too fucked up to keep the world going round.

If I stop and count up all the apocalypses I've lived through, starting with Y2K...... I'm pretty sure I should have my own television program on the WB.

People have been talking about the apocalypse since medieval times, its a religious fabrication. There is no supreme end in sight yet unless the sun explodes. Even cockroaches live on. We just want to justify our bad behavior by giving up.

@avery--it's the CW now which stands for charismatic whites. You should be on a show called Killing the Kardashians and the only way they can survive is if they learn how to read. Have fun!

Really?  CW?  I feel like I should have known that.  Since it is apparently targeted right toward me (charismatic whites)! 

The Kardashians wrote a book.  Okay, they published a book with their names on it.  It was hot pink and had glitter.

I don't care when the world ends, as long as I can get laid and get drunk one more time.
