So pardon me as I don my aluminum foil baseball cap but um...did we all forget the Mayan calendar/2012/end-of-the-world thing already?
Hello crackpot theory from Seattle: This, of course, is based on the idea that back when the Mayans disappeared it was because they were a super-intelligent race which developed space flight/cool star-trekky teleportation/something similar and POOF! Gone, in a pre-historic instant!
So the theory goes that come the "end of the world"/calendar, they are returning to bring their forgotten brothers home (ET-style). When my people come back in the spaceships, come December 22nd when they start taking a headcount...do you really think there'll be room for 6 billion? I don't.
I mean, just counting the peeps who live in the D.F. (Day-Effay for full effect), that's over 20 million! Now I'm no UFO expert, but thems a lot of peeps to stuff in the ships. So a pandemic here, a war there, it's just what the Mayan witch doctor ordered to keep the numbers in check, or something.
Right, you all think I'm super nuts now, but need I remind you all that TWO states found me sane enough to teach children? Buahahaha!
