Doomed, I tell you.
Yes, it is a mere two and a half minutes to The End of Days, so I have to type quickly or I’ll never get this published.
Fuck me but they’re a cheery bunch, aren’t they? They sit around counting the ways we are about to annihilate ourselves and calculating just how near we are to extinction. Their Christmas office party must be a right fucking barrel of laughs? They would almost make the Health Fanatics look like a cheery bunch.
So they started this happy little exercise back in ’47 and reckoned we were all of seven minutes from the edge of the cliff? Why the fuck didn’t they start it at midday which would have given us a bit more leeway? They start off by telling us we have less that 0.5% chance of survival yet we are still here?
So what is the purpose of this little exercise, you ask? Search me. They claim it’s “a symbolic instrument informing the public when the earth is facing imminent disaster“. Symbolic? Simbollix! Why on earth would anyone want to be “informed” about a hypothetical and frankly dismal forecast of our imminent demise? Jayzus but I have far more important things to worry about, like whether I have enough baccy to last me until I go to the shops.
There really is enough doom and gloom around these days without this bunch adding to it. The news for the last while, post American elections and Brexit has been nothing but bad news. Everything is negative and I have heard nothing positive about either. No one has come forward and sad that maybe Yer Man in the White House just might [remotely] have an idea or two. Not one person has claimed that Brexit might be the right way to go. No – it’s all negative, with predictions of nuclear holocaust and financial meltdown.
The only person I know who is extremely optimistic about the future is our Dame Enda and he’s just a fucking idiot anyway and no one listens to a word he says.
Well, it’s over two and a half minutes since I started scribbling this and we are still here. Maybe they meant two and a half hours? Or days? Or millennia?
After all, it is only symbollix?
