01.03.2010 22:48 - Always Bring The Weather With You
March roars in like a lion, and that can only mean one thing. The rapid movement of large bodies of hot air. It's happened before and it will happen again. It is not, as the constant doomsayers of the popular press keep reminding us, the End of the World. Just because it gets a bit cold, then blowy and a couple of earthquakes happen doesn't mean that we're all going to die in 2012. Just because the Incas calendar runs out then. I mean, seriously? If you're going to take the word of a bunch of superstitious savages who were so busy counting they actually forgot to invent the wheel, then you deserve having a big tree dropped on your car.
I mean, did no-one actually take note of what happened ten years ago? Remember, the "Millenium Bug" ho ho ho? Remember what really happened? I'll tell you what happened. Nothing, apart from a bunch of chancers with MCSEs (Minesweeper Consultant, Solitaire Expert) made a lot of money "Auditing" the computers of the more gullible, which they promptly invested high-risk investment funds. Oops.
I think we need a little reminding of the Laws of Human Stupidity.
Especially certain builders in Cologne.
