Daily I get at least a few emails from what I call the Hysterics Crowd. The basics of which are “THE WORLD IS ENDING, THE SKY IS FALLING”. There are some common memes these folks tend to latch onto as to our impending doom. No matter the meme de jour though there are some common components to most of them.
The first commonality is they are generally based on facts that have been bent, skewed and twisted to sell an idea. The second it that it is hard to believe that such people can really believe them as they stray so far from the logical to be ridiculous. The third being that they feel a substantial need to do something when in reality if what they say is true is true, there is little they can personally do. Hence they are freaked out and looking for something to do now! HELP ME!
Okay time for a big blue mental valume and a side does of reality on a ton of this stuff. The sad part being that the truth is someways is more terrifying then fiction.
