I suppose by now everybody except Jerry and me have grabbed their savings and are heading to Barstow. Why? To reserve for themselves and their families a bunk in the underground nuke-proof bunker that is being touted as a way to survive doomsday - the end of the world - which is scheduled for December 12, 2012. The way I hear it, $50,000 will get a bunk in a four-person room. Reservations are $5,000 for adults and $2,500 for kids. Pets are free.

Never mind that there is a fool born every minute. Never mind that those who believe the bible is God’s word know scripture says “but of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” Never mind that in 2006 alone, the end of the world was predicted by various major personages (major enough to have followers) to happen on Jan. 26, May 26, June 6, August 22, September 8/9, Sep 12, and Dec 17. Did it happen and I just didn't know it? No, I think not.

It seems now that the buzz is about the Mayans and an ancient calendar that gives the doomsday as 12/12/12. At least nobody is blaming the potential disaster on computers like what was feared at the 1999/2000 changeover.

The thing that causes me to laugh about all this whoopla on the part of sellers and buyers of underground bunkers is this:

There are a few of us who are passing on the bunkers. Personally, I'm saving my cash for a space ship ride to a safe planet in a far off galaxy.
