2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!
Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.
The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.
What do me and O.J. Simpson have in common?
That date is what the two of us have in common. June 17th is my birthday. But June 17th is also the date of O.J.'s infamous slow speed chase through Los Angeles with the LAPD after the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
It didn't help that the chase was aired on TVs all over America and that alone overshadows anything else very important. I mean, the cure for cancer might be discovered on that day in the near future, unless the 2012 bullcrap happens, but everybody will probably still think of O.J.'s chase with the cops on June 17.
Many good things in sports happened on that day or so ESPN's 30 For 30 will show, but O.J. saw all the good sports stuff, got jealous and greedy. So he decided to kill his wife and her friend and decided "I'm going to get in a white Ford Bronco and lead the LAPD on a slow chase all over the city, where TV cameras will pick it up! Yeah, that's what I'll do." But that's just my interpretation.
Maybe on the 17th, I'll play Grand Theft Auto IV, kill some people in that game and lead the cops on a slow speed chase throughout Liberty City.
