...with all of this, "The End Of The World Is Nigh" " ...2012" & et. merta goin' on,lately. It be-struck me as odd, that one near-earth object has not been mentioned much by the near-scientific and scientific community when it comes to meteors. asteroids and errant comets... Our moon. They always have these space-bodies striking earth- Yet, seldom- if ever... Hit the moon! Think of the implications! Now say, a sizable chunk of space-rock whacks the moon very, very hard and kicks up a massive amount of rock and dust... And a lot of this debris makes its' way into the moons' orbital-plane. Then begins to stretch out until it forms a ring about this planet... I'll bet the guys over at the, Ol' Farmers' Almanac will be in a tizzy over tryin' to come up with a new formula for th' next years' best plowin' an' plantin' schedule, to say the least! A grey-dark shadow shall greet the mornings' sun-rise. And accompany the moon during every phase... Lessee, how's th' Bible put it..."...th' sun became black as sackcloth... ...and th' moon blood-red..." Rats... I'm too sick to really 'enjoy' the end o' th' age... Any of these "...end of's" is gonna suck worse for the luckless ill-folk...like meself. ...mebbe, when or if any of this stuff actually happens, I pray(and I do!) the dudes-in-charge will make th' fire-hall across th' street from me, Rx 'headquarters'... ...just a muse, mind ye. An outstandingmuuse of a sittingmoose... ... .
