There have been a lot of chat lately about how the world is ending this Friday, Dec 21st. If the apocalypse really is near then I’m afraid there’s little we can do about it. But if nothing happens then those ancient Mayans were some of the best trolls ever ☜(ﾟヮﾟ☜)
Despite what the outcome may be, can this prediction benefit our financial lives? Yup, you bet 🙂 If you haven’t done all your holiday shopping yet, just tell your friends and family that there’s no point getting each other Christmas gifts because we’ll never get the chance to celebrate Christmas this year. Tell them you are busy making end of the world “preparations” and if they really respect you then they will understand, hopefully. However, you should now be able to save tons of money on not having to buy presents anymore 😀 Which is good in the event that the world doesn’t end. And nobody can fault you for being cautious :0)
Random Useless Fact: Some animals like goats have rectangular pupils which give them 320-340 degrees vision. This means goats can see pretty much all around them without having to move their eyes. Human vision by comparison only covers 160 -210 degrees 🙁 (source)
Love the pic! Not sure it works if you don’t want to be considered crazy for the rest of eternity… or the next 3 days…
Crazy people are sometimes geniuses with ideas not yet ready to be accepted by the masses. In the possible event that things do become chaotic on the 21st, they can be all like “told you so :P” lol
I joked to my fiancé that we should open our Christmas presents now “just in case”.
Cool, I wouldn’t be surprised though if some people are really considering to do that 🙂
I’m pretty much planning on still being here!
Me too. But I might stock up on comic books and video games just in case 😉

Lol, children probably probably don’t need to hear about it. At that age they have bigger things to be concerned about, like eventually coming to the realization that Santa is not real 😉
That’s a pretty creepy picture! I don’t think I’ve ever stared at a goat long enough to notice that. I think I might have to put it on my list of things to do for next year. 🙂
Man, I wish that excuse would fly; I have barely started my shopping! 🙂
I think sheep have similar pupils. I’ve never seen one up close before either but will be paying more attention next time I run into one lol.
I’m not too worried about the end of the world. I had a great year so if it’s the end, oh well : )
I’ve heard archaeologists have now discovered that the whole end of world prediction was based on a faulty translation by some researcher in the 1960s or something. And that’s how it all started. It’s hard to know who to listen to when science and facts are always changing. When I was little, I remember we had 9 planets in our solar system, now apparently we have 8 🙂
If this is the year that the world will end as we know well I’ll die happy!

Haha…love the random fact even if that pic is a bit on the scary side!
Try imagining what it would be like to look through pupils like that (O.o) Our peripheral vision would increase dramatically 😀
haha I love this post. And those eyes are very, very creepy.
Damn nature, you scary…(°□°)
Shut up, goats have rectangle pupils? That’s insane!
They probably started out round like ours but over many generations they started to stretch in order to spot predators easier. That’s just my guess but I’m sure there’s a perfectly good evolutionary explanation for it out there… :0)
I like how you decorated your freedom bird with Santa’s hat… getting into the festive spirit I see. Tick tock… at least my list isn’t big. 🙂
Thanks, I’m glad you noticed 😀
Mayans! Cheer up! Don’t worry if your prophecy isn’t fulfilled, it’s not the end of the world you know…LOL
Haha, they are faced with the tough decision of picking a side, either admit their ancestors might have been mistaken, or believe that the world will end, tough choice :0)
To all Mayan calandar followers, please, please before tomorrow, take the time the time to redirect all accumulated asset value to “Phil in Ontario” 🙂 Cheers and Happy Holidays to those that survive. Should the world not quite end as anticipated, party will be at my place on the 22nd!
I’ll attend your party and bring my finest bottle of Bordeaux :0) After you sort through your windfall I call dibs on anything you don’t want 😀
