Happy New Year!!! Of course this is the year predicted for the world to end by the Mayan calendar. So I guess we should start getting ready. Many people are prepping with food and guns and supplies and such. Of course if it is the end of the world then there will be no survivors so why are we getting ready.
Guess it is because everyone thinks that whatever happens it will not affect them. In zombie movies everyone thinks they are the guy with the shotgun and not the zombie. Or in the dungeon scene that they are the one escaping and not the skeleton chained in the corner.
In reality someone has the car accidents and fires and earthquakes and someone wins the lottery. We just never think it is going to be us except for the lottery which we never win. Hope is what we have and hopefully it will never go away.
