Happy New Year everybody! 2006. Another year closer the apocalypse. Or so we can all hope.
Ever hear about the ancient Mayan belief that the year 2012 would be the end of mankind? When all of our mechanical devices grow minds of their own, and domesticated animals lead everything we'd used and enslaved for our benefit against us? Of course, their end came much sooner, and certainly not due to their own selfishness and god-complexes.
In Scotland today is referred to as Hogmanay, and children even go door-to-door to collect gifts. In America all we do is gather in big cities into drunken and often brutal crowds to watch a ball drop. Woopdeedoo. I want my presents!
Well, in any case, 2005 hasn't been the kindest year. I'm quite glad it's behind me, and that God has given us all a new slate to work on. I don't quite know why the New Year came to represent that to us all, really it's just a continuation. But, meh, I'll take it.
I hope that your New Year is adventure-filled. That a cure for cancer is founded, world peace established, and all of the hungry fed. And then the next day they make more affordable video games, because my wallet does have a limit (coughcoughsonycoughcough).
