I sat down one Tuesday morning like I always do. I have my bowl of oatmeal in front of my computer and check email. This mainly consisted of clearing my spam folder of  generic advertisements for Viagra knock offs that would probably leave me forever celibate, and some massive foreign bank needing...

On one hand I was shocked, but at the same time I was not surprised. I had been playing Grand Turismo 5 (a car racing game for all those that are gaming challenged) on my Sony PS3 game console for much longer than a man of my age should that day.

Now that we can put another Valentine’s Day behind us, I woke up that morning feeling extremely sad that it would be the last one for mankind. Since 2012 is the year that will bring about our demise, I pondered how I would send the day off with a bang. This is how my day went. First, I headed...
