Does anybody else feel like the world is ending? Seriously. There's
so many bad things... When you watch the news, you get a
feeling that things are never going to get better.
The most creepy thing is that mystery illness that's taking over
Asia. I mean, people are actually wearing surgical masks in the
streets. Everytime I see footage of that, I think, woh -- this is
how it'll end. Five years from now, after the world's population
has been reduced to 150 million or so, we'll look at that old footage
and remember that's how everything started. First the disease,
then the panic, then the riots. It's like the beginning of Steven
King's "The Stand." Lucky for me, I'm one of those chosen ones
who have an immunity to the disease. But I feel sorry for the
rest of you. I don't want to be posting messages to the Cboard
when all of you are dead...
And then you got the whole North Korea/Nuke issue...
And the economy. Even McDonald's is reporting losses. McDonald's!
People aren't even spending their money on $0.99 cheeseburgers!
What hope does any other industry have?
And the Department of Homeland security... Just thinking about
that article that some posted last week -- the one where the
anti-terror czar in Jersey says that all business will be closed
during a red-alert, that's creepy too. I can just picture my city
with nobody other than the police (in riot gear) walking the streets...
I have a bad habbit of starting paragraphs with "And."
