Let’s Party Like There’s No Tomorrow

Unless you live under a rock, you know that the Mayan Calendar ends tomorrow and many predict that the world will end with it.
You’ve chuckled at the weather forecast image that’s gone viral:
The Mayan Channel Forecast . . . Thursday: partly cloudy, high 45. Friday: Fire and brimstone.
You probably think this is just silly fun, but some are taking it seriously, if only to let others know they are not taking it seriously. Even NASA has a rebuttal page on its website and a video to debunk the doomsday theories. NASA has been deluged with emails.
Here’s how a typical message begins ”Dear sir, I know you work for the government and cannot be trusted since Congress has passed a law making it illegal for anyone to tell the public about an incoming near earth object, but . . .
Such trust in our government . . .
Well, if the world ends tomorrow, at least we don’t have to worry about falling off the fiscal cliff.
Some companies are cashing in on people’s fears.
In the Siberian city of Tomsk, what began as gag to offer end-of the world survival kits has since turned into a profitable business venture.
The $29 kits include candles, a rope, a notepad and pencil, a can of fish . . . and vodka.
Just the essentials . . .
Even restaurants are cashing in. TGIF—Thank God it’s Friday Restaurant is promoting the day heavily:
- Your last Friday
- Your last meal
- Party like there’s no tomorrow
And don’t worry about dressing up for the last day. Remember—it’s casual Friday!
Really, you don’t need to worry. . . there have been 160+ “end of the world” predictions before . . . all wrong, obviously.
So, if you haven’t bought your Christmas gifts, the end of the world won’t get you off the hook this year either.
And, what will I be doing on the last day? Going to my son’s wedding! I keep telling him . . . it’s not the end of the world!
Let’s party like there’s no tomorrow!
