This week has made it official: the apocalypse is nearing. 

In the past decade, the Rams, Patriots, Buccaneers, and Colts have won the Super Bowl, while the Seahawks, Panthers, Cardinals have earned Super Bowl berths.

And in the past week, there is now a Republican Senator in Massachusetts, and the New Orleans Saints in the Super Bowl.


This is no statement of political ideology, but I think regardless of ideology, most people would have never expected to see the Saints in the Super Bowl.  Or yeah, the Democrats lose an office held by a Kennedy to a Republican in Massachusetts of all places.

Other things I never thought that I would see.

A Democratic presidential candidate winning the EC votes from the state of Indiana.  Jose Canseco as the most trustworthy man in sports.  A snow storm in Redding, CA.  The Tonight Show being the butt of all jokes, and not the other way 'round.

Did I mention to that on the tenth of this October the date will be 101010, which in binary code is 42?  For those who don't know, 42 is the answer once given by a computer when asked what is the meaning of life, the universe and everything else.


Well okay, perhaps this is premature, because after all, the Browns and Lions have yet to earn Super Bowl births.  And some order has returned with USC reclaiming the title of University of Spoiled Children and the University of Second Choice with the hiring of Lane Kiffin.

Methinks however that even Satan can't afford the gas bill from the oil companies and had to turn down the heat, which might explain the last decade of events. 

After all, we have been drilling most of that dinosaur based oil.  Methinks that perhaps the dinosaurs disappeared, because Satan needed something to fuel the fires of hell.
