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.

Irene is heading my way

Posted August 26th, 2011 at 6:14 PM by Mario The World Champion

Hurricane Irene has the eastern coast of the United States in her cross-hairs. The Eastern Seaboard is going to get hit. Very hard. North Carolina is first in its path and every major city on the east coast will get in Irene's way. New York City might be hit the hardest not from the initial storm, but the water surges will easily flood New York City's subways.

As for me, this is the first major hurricane that I have experienced. All the major storms I have been through have been snow storms and that tornado that ripped through Hampden County in June. I live up in Hampshire County in Massachusetts. Even though Massachusetts is deep in New England, I saw how big that hurricane is and from the projected path of Irene, we're gonna get hit hard as well.

I don't live near any water and I live at a good elevation, but that doesn't mean we're in the clear. My house has a bunch of trees in the back that could easily fall on top of the house. So, I got a lot to worry about, never mind we'll lose power for a few days.

I hope that when Mom goes out shopping for supplies, we can still get the stuff we need like batteries, a new flashlight, food and water. That sort of stuff.

    Bless all of you on East Coast. Irene passed Florida and even then, the surf and sky looked rough. :C

    I've got plenty of online friends that are in Irene's path, and I'm just wishing that all of them, as well as you make it through this okay. :/ Watching about it on the news is nerve-racking because we can't do anything about it..
