Unexplained Confidential: 2012 or bust

unexplained5

It’s becoming more and more evident to me that our time on this planet is limited. It’s a strange thing, this 2012 rhetoric.

You need only look to the skies to see thousands of dead birds dropping to the ground, to get the point. How about all the dead fish washing up … Continue reading
