What do you mean?
I think you chickened out -- you are taking the easy way. Instead of sitting down writing your own little essay -- putting the effort in. You figured that it would be easier to answer questions.
This is not working out like...
What a wimp. I am asking you questions now, and you are sitting there contemplating starting this essay over because you can't answer your own questions. What is it with you?
Well, you know, I thought we could work in partnership like Roy Rogers and Trigger, or Einstein and, uh, Mrs. Einstein. I thought that we could work together to...
I'm sure that she told him every morning, "You can't go out in public with your hair looking like that."
We saw how well that worked.
Okay -- I'll feed you something simple. What -- God this is boring -- are your New Year resolutions?
I don't have any for this year. I was waiting for 2012.
I see -- you are now feeding me questions. Why wait (and I apologize to the reader) for 2012?
Hello? Are you there?
That is so odd...no -- so stupid on so many levels I don't know how to respond.
But I have an ace up my sleeve.
You see. The world really isn't going to end so I will have become a better person without really having to die.
Why did you drag me in here?
To ask questions, and as you can see, I'm doing a really good job of answering them.
What should I ask you now?
You could ask me why the world isn't going to end in December of 2012.
If that is what you wanted to write about, why didn't you just write about it? Okay, why aren't we going to whatever it is in 2012?
Well, I didn't write about it because I just thought of it. I know I could start over but I've already put effort in this and now you are asking really good questions, so...
|The Amazing Non-Perpetual Mayan Calendar|
Boring, and not very scientific. I know, don't say it -- you don't want to confuse people with science. Oh, what now? Huh? You want me to ask about planetary or stellar conjunctions?
|Things Aligned in the Sky|
I don't think trigonometrically is a word. Anyway, I'm betting on the wandering giant comet, or is it a planet, that is heading our way and is going to smash us to smithereens.
Why would it hit us in December of 2012? Because the Mayan calendar ends?
It is unfair to ask an astronomer to prove a negative.
"Prove that a massive body is not heading our way and going to crash into us?"
"See I told you. That proves there is a government conspiracy covering the whole thing up."
Can we stop now?
I'm just getting started.
I invite your readership -- the last I counted it was four people -- to ask a question...
You can't do that?
...and see if they can get a straight forward answer. I'm getting a headache. So put your thinking caps on and throw those hard hitting questions at Jerry.
Wait a minute. Okay....I'll pick three to answer.
Like I told you. A wimp!
