12/21/12 is about six months before I graduate from high school. So no, the world is not going to end on that day. I refuse to let twelve painful years of school go to waste. I want to go to college, dern it.
People predict the end of the world all the time. Doesn't mean it'll happen when they say it will. Of course, the world will end someday. But not on that day. I'm getting out
of high school first, thank you very much.
(read as: I don't believe in stuff like that. It ends when it ends, when God says it does or we blow ourselves up or the sun goes kaboom. And hey, if it does end in 2012, then at least I won't have to worry about paying for college.)
I'd much rather a zombie apocalypse, anyway.
