So have you made your plans for December 21st yet? Have you collected on your investments and is the helicopter ready to take you to that unnamed island or bunker?
What I really like about this story of the mountain which will open up and a spaceship will take all the new age hippies away is to look at it from the Captain’s point of view.
Ok, the mountain opens, he’s ready to go. Is he really going to take a mass of be-sandalled, hairy, unwashed hippies with their self-entitlement with no effort writ large on their foreheads and radiating from their lovebeads?
Or is he more likely to take Aung San Suu Kyi, Mother Theresa, Ron Paul, your own mother and father and all the other unsung heroes who’ve passed under the radar?
I mean, let’s say the good Cap’n has ten places onboard – whom do you think he’ll allocate them to?
To put it another way – which ten, in addition to yourself, would you take on board if you could beam them to the craft tout suite?
