We Are All Just Waiting For 2012

In just two short years, the world will end. We know that. California will fall into the ocean. Tidal waves will spill over the mountains of Tibet. Humanity will disappear into an Apocalyptic chasm and time as we know it will cease to exist. This is all written. But what are we supposed to do until then?! Two years will probably seem like almost nothing by the time the End of the World actually arrives, but from where I’m sitting, that’s still a fair amount of time to kill. I already had a sandwich today. Now what? Watch a video of a guy placing an anvil on top of another anvil, with gunpowder layered in between, and shooting one of the anvils 200 feet into the air? I guess. But why is he doing it? I said why is he shooting the anvil 200 feet into the air? What do you mean because? It just seems kind of pointless, doesn’t it? I mean, there has to be a reason besides “because.”

Oh, because he too is simply passing time until the world and all of human history is swallowed into a silent nightmare of annihilation, and so until then he goes to the park and shoots anvils 200 feet into the air because what else is he going to do?

FAIR ENOUGH. Ring that bell, monk! (Via Neatorama.)
