Running Down the Street with My Hands in the Air...

I hate to be the doomsayer running down the street with his hands in the air, but have you watched the news lately?

Just today, I clicked on the "Middle East" link on BBC News and my browser exploded.

I'm sure its not the end of the world, the world will be here long after all the humans on it are dead, but things are certainly a little hectic right now.

North Korea is testing long range missiles, and Japan is rattling its sabers at them.

Israel is bombing the crap out of Lebanon, and Iran is rattling its scimitars.

More earthquakes in the ocean, and tsunami's are rattling the bamboo in Indonesia.

Not to even mention that hurricane season is just getting ramped up. (and old people in Florida are rattling in their hammocks)

And people are complaining because the President is cursing? He'd better be cursing with all this shit going on!

Now, I'm not saying that the apocalypse is coming, and I'm not saying its not (ok, its not) but things could definitely get more difficult for us all.

So maybe think about keeping a jug of water under your sink, or at least keeping the Brita full. Maybe buy a few extra can goods at the store next time. And you should really think about converting your basement into a giant gasoline container.
