I couldn’t believe that the National Geographic Channel would, with all seriousness, present all these junk science Mayan prophesy 12/21/12 nonsense, even with a stunningly flawed piece of excrement implying a sudden climate shift (was the end of the world 5200 years ago that somehow we all survived) would repeat, like clockwork, of course, and if modern climate change scientists can’t create convincing models, somehow we’re supposed to believe stone-age folks did.
Anyway, so to all my readers out there, hopefully one of you will be gullible to believe this rubbish, so as my man Nate says, put your money where your mouth is – make a bet about your prediction.
So I’ll offer you 10 to 1 (for the right I’ll even consider higher) odds that nothing significant, certainly not earth-shattering, end of the world, pole reversing, sudden climate change or whatever doomsday scenario you want to believe is going to happen. No, not some small little thing you can try to spin into a claim of proving the end of the world; it has to be BIG and measurable.
Now, of course, you believers are saying, of course this fool will make a bet because when we’re right and the world ends (or at least for anyone who isn’t a prepper) I’ll never have to pay off. But, no, we can arrange that. I’ll place my payoff in the form of some useful (to preppers and after the world ends) goods, well hidden and secure, and known only to you (you’re welcome to come inspect the cache). You can then collect this stuff long after I’m dead, along with all the other stupid people who ignored this prophecy.
But you too have to put my side of the bet in some form of escrow since I know it will be easy enough for you to duck out of town when you’re proven wrong. And I want real cash (you know, paper bills you can actually buy stuff with, not gold or some other nonsensical “real money”) to placed somewhere I can get it and you can’t take it back.
So if you’re right, I’m dead and you collect. If you’re wrong, you’re stuck alive and embarrassed with egg on your face and your money in my pocket.
Have we got a bet?
If not, then shut the f**k up about all this doomsday nonsense.
