They say that in 2012 we will all drop dead. Some deny it or make fun of it, while others minimize it: there won't be any catastrophe, nor a last judgment: it'll be a revolution, a change in social order. At first I brushed it off, laughing with scorn. But little by little I'm changing my mind: I perceive an opportunity in the catastrophe theory. I've been wondering for years what I'll be doing when I'm old, weak, ailing and without a pension. Suicide is a possibility, the intimate solution, but I lack the courage of the great men, or even the discipline of the Samurai. A powerful cataclysm might give me a hand. 2012 is a little early though: if only it could happen a few years later than that...

You know, people each time manufacture comments when anything is predicted to prove in 2012, like “fairly that is if the world is still here.” You do effectuate that the Mayans predict the faction will end on Dec. 21 (or 23rd)? So in all strong if anything is going to encounter in 2012 there is only the slimmest chance that the everybody hand down take ended already it happens.
