The Solar Eclipse Hype Feels Like We’re in a Hollywood Disaster Movie
When I saw this sign this morning it made me feel like Jeff Goldblum in Independence Day.
I mean, after the aliens landed and the shock wore off, people started throwing alien parties. They went in droves to rooftops to greet the aliens, and all the while, Jeff Goldblum was cautiously warning people to get far away.
You have a rare, astronomical event that makes animals crazy, affects the tides, and comes at a time when the world is burning politically, socially, and economically. What could go wrong?
Well, let me tell you what could go wrong. Here are just a few examples:
- Your every day, run-of-the-mill lunatic sees it as an opportunity to loot and steal s--t.
- You have people who will take some deeper religious meaning and do something deadly in the name of their God.
- Then, there is the possibility that this event is significant to the aliens and they use today as a chance to strike us.
Those are just a few, but there are so many. The scientists can guess all they want about what this is, how it works, and what it means to us all, but do they really know?
All I am saying is protec' yo' neck. Be like Goldblum today, not the spaced out stripper on the roof who gets blown up by aliens.
