So, apparently it's the end of the world next week. Again.
On March 19th we are due for an ocurrence known as a 'Super Moon' when our only natural satellite will be at its closest for 18 years. Such events are said to cause extreme weather conditions. Erm, maybe I've been imagining it but aren't extreme weather events practically a weekly ocurrence these days? Previous Lunar Perigees have ocurred in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005. We all remember the earthquakes of '55, the tsunamis of '74, the terrible London hurricane of '92 and the small shower over Droitwich of '05 of course.
Why are we so obsessed with disaster? 11 years ago we were all going to die as every computer system in the world imploded at midninght on December 31st 1999, and only last month a terrible massive solar flare was going to obliterate communications networks all across the globe.
NOTHING HAPPENED. And nothing is exactly what will happen again.
I'll give them a bloody super moon, and I won't wipe my arse first.
