The movie 2012 and its relevance with the actual end of the earth

2012, is a film that is just about to be released here in Australia.

The movie provides great pictures and scenarios of how our world may end. (im gonna watch it in the movies, seriously) But, guys (and girls) im sorry to say… pack away your guns and any materials you might possibly use for anarchy, coz the end of the world aint coming. (not in our life time atleast).

Im saying this because many people around the world who heard that the mayan calander depicts the end of the world, just took it the wrong way…

WOW, some calander ends in two years and this gives us the excuse that the world is going to end? BIG DEAL!

Let me prove to you WHY it wont happen!

The mayan calander is much like our own.

We have 365 days in our year (not including leap years).
Our calander only runs for one year.
After every year, we make a new calander.

Now, WOULDNT you think this also applies to the mayans?
well, correct me if Im wrong, coz i typing this from the top of my head.

BUT, the mayan calander has an age of 5,125.36 years.
so in 5,125.36 years, they need to make a new calander.
This is the end of the ‘Great Cycle’

See... it looks JUST like a clock..

so then, after this amount of years, their calander ends, and they need to replace it.

Now, coincidentally (yes, thats right, coincidences happen) the calander ends in two years (since 2009 is practically the end and the beginning of 2010).
But many people say, if the the calander is ending, and its not depicting the end of the world, then why arent they making a new calander?

Simple reason folks, VERY simple.
The mayans are an extinct civilization. If there were to still be some distant relatives or survivors, i would seriously doubt their ability to create another system of exceptional engineering, mathematical mastery in cyclical deviation and complex thinking in terms that incorporate time for past/present/future!

So therefore, the world is not ending. Only that we need to replace an irreplaceable artifact that has simply…gone out of date…

Dogs+Controlled Breeding = Evil!

Today, i will be talking about the topic, “dogs”, “breeding” and “evil”

I guess I’ve just summed it up. Yes, what i am trying to say is that, the controlled breeding of a dog, purely for improving its “deformation” is utterly and despicably inhumane! If you don’t understand what I’m talking about, the let me show you some examples.


This is the widely known face of the Bulldog

This is the face of the dog before controlled breeding…

As you can see, there are some obvious differences in the two pictures.
1. The nose of the bulldog has been severely deformed.
2. The size of the bulldog (although not shown in the pictures) has greatly diminished compared to its older relative.
3. There is a noticeably less amount of flabby skin on its face and back.

Over the many years of controlled breeding, we have created numerous abnormalities in almost every of our dog species. So from these features of the bulldog, let me…enlighten you on the disadvantages and advantages.

Disadvantages:
– The deformation of the face is due to the shrinking of the dog’s skull, the nose of the dog’s skull has shrunk due to the years of controlled breeding. This causes an irregular shape in the dog’s nose which in turn creates many respiratory infections, diseases, problems and physical limitations. Every bulldog that is born, develops respiratory diseases and problems!
– The diminished size of the bulldog compared to its older relative is very, very bad. why? well, its short legs means that it has to take more steps to walk an amount of distance. e.g. if i take one step, the bulldog must take four. This including the dog’s respiratory limitations equals an unhealthy and problematic dog that would cost its owner many tens of thousands of dollars to correct.

Advantages:
– The more deformed the dog, the better you will rank in a dog show.
– The more deformed the dog’s face, the more it makes us say “Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww… how CUTE!!!!!!!!!”

Now, I don’t need to tell you, for you to understand how badly we are treating dogs (or any other species might i note). So…why would we be doing this? Is it because we did not know that it was bad? Is it because we like deforming dogs, merely for entertainment? OR, Is it because of a trophy and $10,000 reward money?

I know it is the 3rd answer. Breeders, from since the early 1800s, have intended on deforming their dog, to have the more “extreme” feature compared to any other dog of its species. They did this because of the dog shows and where might i say, did these dog shows originate from? England of course….

In my opinion, our lust for better complexion in one’s face, our desire to increase one’s feature even to the point of being a “freak” and our obvious expectation to create predicaments points to none other than, our greed. Now, i don’t mean all of us do this, but there are those who always ruin this for others. I myself have a dog, and this is the reason why i am so..passionate to such a topic. My dog is a Labrador a guess what? It has already been deformed. But this deformation occurred in the 1800s and as generations have passed, every Labrador has inherited this problem. You may be wondering, What is the deformation? every, Labrador i know is normal as far as i can see. Well, let me tell you this, its deformation does not lie on any visual features, this deformation is actually down to its bone. So, in fact, every Labrador will encounter arthritis sometime in its life.

Other dogs with deformations include, Chihuahuas (it used to be a much bigger dog with a bigger jaw), “Wiener dogs” (it used to be taller and its body was obviously shorter), beagles were taller, almost as tall as a Labrador. So in conclusion, i say that breeders who breed dogs purely for the entertainment of others and the reward for a trophy is what i label as evil and inhumane.

There we have it, another rant from Rawk My World

We do not own any of the pictures, videos or any media related material other than the text on the website.

We look forward to any feedback.

The Dust Storm (named by the media:Life on Mars)

1st thing in mind?

STORM! RUN! HIDE! – and gone. Hahaha.

Three days ago the (23rd of September, 2009) there was a phenomenal natural “event” that occurred in New South Wales of Australia.

I labeled this occurrence as an event because it did not show any disastrous effects, excluding the large expenses for electrical companies such as energy Australia.

On that Wednesday, were winds blowing from up to 80km/h in the rural areas of western New South Wales, these winds had apparently picked up the reddish/orange dust of the outback and blown them all across the states of New South Wales. These winds blew all the way from the city of Broken Hill to Sydney.

By the early morning, every man, woman and child had woken up to a sunset which had enveloped their field of vision (orange dust had covered, well, basically, anything that was outside. Lulz.)

You may be wondering, “how could these winds have blown so much red dust from such a large distance”? (points and measures the distance from Broken Hill to Sydney on the globe).

Well, the answer is: “These winds did not blow, they literally fanned the dust for hours on end without ceasing”.

I should also note, prior to the dust storm, was a HUGE amount of thunder, rain and wind. Seriously!  The thunder was MAJOR, i was listening to Human by The Killers, and the thunder made my bass jump and my speakers go static.

This happened because i literally saw a flash of lighting hit a house right in front of my street, the sound of the lightning and the flash happened at the exact same time.

So here is how i saw this whole event. i’ll list it as a time line for you folks.

06.00pm: i wake up to hear a huge rainstorm. my roof was ringing with “thuds” and “cracks” from the fat rain drops.

08.00pm: i turn on my music, and then watch the amount of water flowing down the street whilst feeling amused at a guy struggling to accelerate his car upwards from my steep hill.

08.15pm: the guy is still struggling. thunder strikes in from of me, electronic system goes berserk.

11.00pm:  rain changes to a light shower, i begin doing an all nighter for the exam tomorrow (lol)

01.00am:  wind suddenly picks up and the house is filled with rattles, i look outside and see huge gusts of wind that even shape the palm trees to the form of a banana, the whole place turns dark outside.

02.00am:  my brain: “hmmmm, the curtains are abnormally redder than usual”. i flip open the curtains and i see a canvas of red. so i put on a raincoat and go outside. instead of rain, i get hit with sand? *runs back inside, takes shower and returns to work*

04.00am: street is orange, the dust storm has stopped.

08.10am: (on train to school) –  friend: “hey, when i woke up, from my window, i saw that the whole city was orange”.  Me: “so? i walked outside at the time when the storm was blowing red…owned much?”

Here is a Scene from a driver in Broken Hill

Some fun facts:

 

the dust that blew over Sydney had also flown over the sea and had colored New Zealand’s mountains orange

-coincidentally, the price for car washes had been increased.

-this dust storm is said to have occurred every millennium

-second dust storm due to occur on the coming Saturday-Sunday (rumor)

Here is a news article that talks of what happened after the Dust Storm.
