I need to do another Countup from Dystopia post…

…because this problem isn’t going away.  And by ‘problem’ I mean ‘the rolling date for Apocalypse’ that seems to exercise a certain class of perpetual professional activists.  Latest version: we have eighteen years to find a second Earth to live on.  That is, if we listen to the World Wildlife Fund, which apparently also thinks that we should all use the average Indonesian’s ration of resources.  Indonesia, where the average per-capita GDP is $4,700 and half the population lacks basic sanitation.

Ach, well, the WWF needs to eat, too. I mean, have you seen the price of fair-trade coffee, lately?  That lifestyle ain’t cheap to maintain…

    I can’t even muster up the energy for an eye-roll at these people.

    Even if we found another planet, they would complain about the amount of fuel/energy/resources it would take to launch rockets.
    As long as the world doesn’t end this year, the last Wheel of Time in being released in January and I have waited 20 years to read it.

    World Wildlife Fund? Isn’t that that bunch of losers who take advantage of First World communications and legal arrangements to try to convince/force everyone else to reduce to Third WOrld living standards? You first, guys. Lead by example.

    Does it really count? It’s not the same author.
    .
    And I thought the whole schtick of the series was that, as time is cyclical, the story need never end. I even had a theme park attraction planned out for it: you get in the queue, walk past scenes of animatronics acting out events in the books (lots of sniffing and foot-stomping), then exit the queue a few feet from the entrance.

    The new author is finishing the series based upon a massive amount of information provided by the original before he passed away. Notes, outlines, interviews, already written out portions, etc. Sanderson is an excellent author in his own right and, honestly, I didn’t notice a huge change in The Gathering Storm when it went from Jordan to Sanderson.

    Dude, Moe. Chcek out The Human Disguise and The Double Human by James O’Neal, you will not be disappointed. If you are disappointed, let me know. I’ll donate what it cost you to download them to your paypal.
