people have always flocked to disasters and freak shows. rubberneckers on highways where a gruesome crash occured, or freak shows like michael jackson concerts. end of the world hype with death and destruction is so exciting to these misfits. mankind will die a gross and nasty death, but the world, terra firma will still be here. and the meek shall inherit the earth. cool.

I've always laughed at "the meek shall inherit the earth" thing. Nothing meek ever inherits anything.

I was not talking about attacking or being meek to humans.

An example: The praying mantis is known as the lion among the insect world. Very vicious! I actually have an egg pod sitting on my desk.

Down here in Mexico there are a lot of them. They also eat my friends chickens, especially the babies. They may not be vicious to you but they are to other smaller animals. For smaller animals they would be comparable to maybe a lion amongst humans.

I read they will even eat rattlesnakes and are immune to the venon.

I am sure they are a vicious predator to small animals. A totally meek animal would be one that eats only fruit or seeds. A fruit bat would be considered meek. I realize the guy being attacked in the youtube video is just an isolated incident but apparently they can bite and come at you under certain circumstances.

I also collected fruit flies in Mexico for genetics studies in the USA with scientific permits. Have collected and at one time cared for over 1,500 reptiles. I literally know family, species and subspecies of over 5,000 reptiles in Latin of course. I have seen and dealt with hundreds of opossums and I know they are timid to humans and larger animals.

I know and have worked with many warm blooded animals and also know many of their names in Latin. I go into the field at night here in Mexico and find animals and photograph them. So I am quite familiar with most animals that exist in the North America, but also in Many other countries as well.

Not trying say you do not know anything, but just saying I do know something also.

Well folks it looks like we made it! No Great Earthquakes, No Tsunami, No Super Volcanos, No Texas size Comets or Asteroids, No earth ending events due to Pole Shift & Pole Reversal, No Ice covering the planet,
No wild Fires on every one of the Continents. Wow that was a close one.

I Guess the Mayan Calendar true meaning was start a new Calendar starting on the first day of winter in 2012.

Can you imagine the look on the faces of all the ding dongs who bought million dollar igloo looking homes in the side of mountains and the bunker type homes dug a 1/4 mile down that same mountain.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years to all who see this post.
