Stop, stop, stop. On the last point: the absolute majority of Russians can safely try on the laurels of the world's saviors, because we were the ones who voted for the uncle who doesn’t let the gunpowder cellar explode for fun for the vultures. All other horror stories - nonsense.
To this day, I have already counted 15 pieces of the “doomsday”. In 80-x, I remember, in all the newspapers about Barabashka it was printed: it’s necessary to somehow divert people from the coupons for sugar and from the shortage in stores.
I have a question: why was this hysteria supported? What did people want to divert from? What really waited and waited?
I repent myself a year ago with a clever air, saying, “something must happen there, some kind of event. But we, the Orthodox, it should not touch. If the end of the world is Mayan, then something bad will happen to the Indians, and we have nothing to do with it, we have other precursors. ”
And then - nothing. You are waiting for more events from the New Year, although you don’t believe in Santa for a long time.
If in fact what kind of cataclysm was planned, we would not be told exactly. It's like in that 2012 movie, when multi-billionaires quietly built themselves arks, leaving everyone behind.
My friend, despite all my vehement objections, somewhere 360 days ago took a large loan at crazy interest, because you don’t have to give it anyway (Andryukha, hello, how are you in bank slavery? But I said, I warned) . He now has his end of the world, his whole life will be rotting, not seeing the light of white. This hero of the film “Armageddon” could take a similar loan and spend it on whores - after saving the world all debts are canceled.
A neighbor works in the office of “Fast Money”. He says a year ago there was a lot of work. Fools (she calls her clients so) was full.
The surge in consumer lending around the world has been incredible. What people would never buy, even on credit, even in installments, flew like hot cakes.
“Get ready to die, but this rye” - they did not know this popular wisdom. Here "after us even the flood" - this is for them, stupid.
The world has fallen into recession, a widespread decline in sales and consumption, there are so many stale goods in warehouses, and then the Mayans came to the rescue. All the costs of the "end of the world" beat off, and the methodology for future hysteria has turned out.
I play the strategy "Civilization". My units are close to the apocalypse, since my spouse is very jealous of them. They lead the epic heroic defense of Novgorod against the Japanese-Spanish hordes. Peasants harvest another crop, workers cast new cannons, soldiers bravely meet the invaders. So, they will all have the end of the world when I click DELETE.
About the same sometime will be with us. Only our Creator is much kinder than me and my wife. He will allow to finish a lot of things, give birth to and bring up children and grandchildren, bring sadness and joy at his own discretion and for my own good in the end.
By the way, the DELETE button. It will hit suddenly, without announcing this event. And here, buy do not buy salt, matches and alcohol "for wiping glasses," we will not go anywhere. Well at least some feedback is available. There are people of great moral heroism, steadfastly ignoring the temptations of the mortal world (I, unfortunately, not so), who are able to ASK for us all, not such: and suddenly we will think again ...
Then the comet will fly past, and the sun will not go out, and the rulers will prove themselves in difficult times.
