Countdown to the End of the Countdown

With the year rapidly coming to a close, the economy has received a much needed boost from last minute shoppers -- who are purchasing ammo for their weapons. As everyone knows the world is scheduled to end on December 21 ...
The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs according to which cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on December 21, 2012 This date is regarded as the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae related to this date have been proposed.
2012 phenomenon
One recognized harbinger of the apocalypse was foretold to occur on Monday, December 5 -- the day Eighth District Congressman Joe Walsh had scheduled to announce his plans to run for re-election in the Eighth District. Or, according to Fox Chicago News, maybe not the Eighth ...
Joe Walsh to Announce Where He’ll Run After Congressional District Remap
(But it's going to be the Eighth.)

In commemoration of the impending conflagration, and to tick off the minutes, your LakeCountyEye has posted a countdown clock widget. This same countdown widget appeared on this blog about one year ago, as readers of this blog are ...

... hold it ... this just in. Frequent Tweeter Calvin from Plano has informed your LakeCountyEye that Armageddon is scheduled to occur on Dec 21, 2012 -- while the current year is 2011. And that 2011 is very different than 2012. Yearwise.

Your LakeCountyEye's green eyeshade sure must look red. Well there's no harm in putting that countdown clock to some use anyways, after your LakeCountyEye went to the all trouble of retrieving it from the pawn shop mothballs:

Nice clock, BB, but according to my calculations the time remaining is 2 days, 2 hours, and 30 minutes if Walsh announces at 8:00 PM at the Tea Party Meeting which starts at 7:00 PM. Your neat little graphic won't have him announcing until the wee hours on Friday.

If he is waiting to announce on the 8th, it might just be a coincidence that he chooses to RUN in the 8th.

What does your crystal ball predict?

Jow Walsh has announced that he is (yet again) postponing his announcement where he is running until January 2, 2012. In a prepared statement read aloud by a low level staffer, Walsh is quoted as saying "Now is the time to announce a delay in the timing of the announcement. Good things come to those who wait, so keep waiting for me to do something good".
