Janaury 2009 is "Your Fucked Month"
 
Kicking off the worst month of the year so far we have Isreal invading Gaza, Somali pirates attacking random shit, the realization that Mexico will fail, Spontaneous riots for various reasons, now we have another for the list. North Korea has proudly announced that it has just completed the weaponization of 30.8 kilograms of plutonium.

And its all out fault.

Evil Robot Jan 17th, 2009 06:51 AM

Oh yeah, and we just lost Circuit City. Now where will I buy the same crap I can get anywhere?

pac-man Jan 17th, 2009 02:30 PM

It's good to know that 2009 is starting off on the right foot!

Guitar Woman Jan 17th, 2009 05:28 PM

dibs on Mexico.

It's also East Coast Freeze Month apparently.

Lord, it's insane. In the words of Lewis Black, "Where the f*** is Global Warming when you need it?"

Oh yeah, and there was also that plane crash into the Hudson, though fortunately everyone survived that.

The geese didn't.

VaporTrailx1 Jan 17th, 2009 10:46 PM

The geese should have known better and flown south months ago.

ZeldaQueen Jan 18th, 2009 12:13 AM

Let this be a lesson to all geese on this forum: Never wait until the last minute when it comes to travel plans.

Suddenly, the 'you're fucked' i was expecting this month has become a 'you're fucked' of a much better context.

Abcdxxxx Jan 18th, 2009 06:49 PM

Are you sure January isn't just the month you became aware of the current climate instead? None of this popped out a box on New Years day. More people have died in the Congo, and the Chinese and Russian are jailing minorities left and right, without anyone caring....this is just getting started.

Evil Robot Jan 18th, 2009 08:09 PM

Quit that crap about the rest of the world, your always trying to make everybody look like uncaring assholes by pointing out that they don't spend every waking minute solving the worlds problems.

ZeldaQueen Jan 18th, 2009 08:23 PM

There've been problems the whole world over since life began. Time was primative life was probably worrying about the loss of ocean water and whether or not they could develop working lungs.

Evil Robot Jan 18th, 2009 09:08 PM

Yeah but dinosaurs never had no nuclear bombs and shit.

ZeldaQueen Jan 18th, 2009 11:32 PM

Nah, but they did have meteors and bigger, carnivorous dinosaurs to worry about. You ever see those "Walking With Dinosaur"-type movies? The narrator will be like "We can see the mother leaving her nest. The eggs will soon hatch. But the noise in the bushes indicates that a hungry egg-eater has other plans. The mother senses danger, but is not in time to rescue three of the five eggs. Then, an ancestor of the modern-day alligator comes out of the water, looking for dinner. The mother turns to fight him off, but she is too tired from her fight. She will not last long, leaving the remaining eggs defenseless..."

What the fuck are you talking about? He's talking about this month being fucked up, not January of 27 million B.C. I mean, shit, I don't think we're going extinct this month. Not to mention journalism from that era is spotty at best.

Evil Robot Jan 19th, 2009 02:56 AM

It is my belief that world strife progresses at the same exponential rate as technology. "International bad events" will continue to grow in frequency and grow worse with time.

Evil Robot Jan 19th, 2009 02:56 AM

This is also the belief of the Discovery Channel.

Dimnos Jan 19th, 2009 11:04 AM

Now they say coral deeper than 4,200 feet is dying. :tear What is our world coming to?

My point is that the world's always had messes. We've managed to (more or less) stumble through, but it's kind of weird to think about it.

kahljorn Jan 20th, 2009 01:57 PM

WE LIVE IN FASCINATING TIMES IN WHICH THINGS ARE DIFFERENT THAN OTHER TIME PERIODS! EVERYTHING IS FUCKED UP CAUSE THE EMPIRE IS GOING TO FALL. IM A PROFESSED MILLENARIANIST.

Big Papa Goat Jan 20th, 2009 03:43 PM

That's millenarian. Millenialist is also acceptable.

ZeldaQueen Jan 20th, 2009 06:10 PM

Speaking of Millenium, whatever happened to that Y2K thing? Wasn't there supposed to be some technological apocolypse? :\

Your nearly a decade too late on that one. i think it would have happened by now. dont know exactly how young you are but nothing happened.

ZeldaQueen Jan 20th, 2009 10:47 PM

I know nothing happened. I was in fifth grade when that came up. My teacher passed out copies of "Time Magazine for Kids" to us all and we read about it, the result of which was that I came home from school freaked out that the world was coming to an end.

Of course, come New Years nothing actually happened. Go figure. :rolleyes:
