The Post No One Will Ever Read

Here it is, the eve of the end of the world, December 20, 2012.  It's mysterious to me why I sit, yet again in front of this computer screen, attempting to coalesce a few hundred words together into a coherent essay.  Why bother on this night, for surely this will be the post no one will ever read.
