The Real Prophets of 2012

•December 21, 2012 • Leave a Comment

Ethan Cohen and Mike Judge earn their prophets’ badge by surpassing the Mayans and Nostradamus in their predictions with a 2006 American film; a satirical science fiction comedy “Idiocracy.” Gangnam Style reached 1 billion views on youtube today, and the world has officially reached a turning point. The two writers predicted the future in a dystopian society full of extremely dumb people.

In their prediction–advertising, commercialism, and cultural anti-intellectualism have run rampant. A dysgenic pressure has resulted in a uniformly stupid society devoid of intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and coherent notions of justice and human rights. Sound familiar? I don’t know about you, but I would say these guys are pretty on point here. These guys are GENIUSES!! And what do you know? For those who predicted the rise of Asia, you were right too! Today marks the official Idiocracy of our society, led by the newly predicted super power.  Congratulations!  

I wonder, what would the Mayans and Nostradamus say if they were alive today?

Fund to Benefit Victims of Sandy Directly

<a href="” title=”Fund to Benefit Victims of Sandy Directly”>Fund to Benefit Victims of Sandy Directly

ear friends and family,

As you all know Hurricane Sandy has nearly destroyed my home state and I am reaching out for your help. Most of you know me to be a skeptical towards large organizations; therefore this effort will not be going towards such.

I have friends whom I know personally that are using all of their free time to go to local shelters and deliver diapers, food, and necessary supplies to help families get through this tough time. Any donation is appreciated and I will share on Facebook pictures and specific details of where your money is going and how it is being used. 100% of your money will be used to help those in need. Remember, your donation is still tax deductible! THANK YOU!

DANI

A Maldição do Samba.
