Reality Repair
by William Cottringer

This is a book to help readers plow through the enormous overload of the 95% nonsense to find the 5% common sense that is hidden away, which is needed to sustain long-ter..

Will the world end,

Since of God we did offend,

Did the Aztecs to us send,

The knowledge of our eventual end…


So much destruction of late,

Is our world getting closer to its fate,

If so I got to admit I think its great,

Hopefully I will be here for its final date…


Will we all in the end perish,

Or will we be able to of our lives cherish,

Our world seems to be of itself ending,

Hard to believe there is anyway,

To ever see it in the near future be mending…

...ah well, the journey matters more than the end anyways, like dear Ursula used to say.

but like I always say, it really depends on who is driving.

I love the cartoon. It takes the sting out of the sobering words a bit.

A lot of conjecture about 12/21/12. [Certainly] we shall all see when that day arrives. The font is perfect for this. Take care. Have a decent TGing day. richard
That wheel is not a calender of but the year and date our collective pension funds will run out, and then maybe a few weeks later, starving, we collectively blow our brains out. I think that wheel was for the cheating bankers, and what follows from there. Love yer style Jersey, you gots class. Bless ya!

You certainly can come up with some cheerful stuff. There is really no indication that number mode 12/21/12 will be any different from any other day.

Great cartoon that speaks volumes. We're a mess but a date is just a date. Patrick

I've already told Mean Tall Woman to skip work on 12/21/12 so she and I can both hug our pets good-bye in case those ancient Mayans were right, and we all become cosmic dust particles that day.

PS: On the bright side, we won't have to buy anybody Christmas Gifts next year - including you!

Yup, I don't see it mending either, Ed. We are in for some bad times.

DELUSIONS ó Pragmatic Realism by Stan Law (aka Stanislaw Kapuscinski)

Dedicated to Richard Dawkins,in gratitude for many hours of enjoyable reading. While he and I donít always see eye to eye, the doctor might find, here, additional arguments for his..
