In Reality...What Is Really Going On?

    I don't consider myself uneducated or unknowing of business, economics or politics, but rather unexperienced. I wake up everyday wondering if I'm going to get that email from the prospective job I applied for whether it be a sports writer/editor position or a clerk at a gas station making $8.00/hr simply to pay the bills or have enough money to have get lunch with a friend at a local restaurant or afford a ticket to a baseball game with my old man. At 23 years old, I don't have the experience others on this forum do, but I beg the question: What is going on with this world/country? Gas prices are increasingly rapidly by the week and jobs have declined by the tens of thousands over the past several months. Are we really on our way to another Great Depression? What plausible conclusions can we make about our country within the next six months or a year? It doesn't take rocket science to know that we'll get out of this slump, but to what extent or what price?

    I seek simply just insight from others that the news isn't telling us.

    Well, The Real World keeps putting crazy people in houses together and all they do is drink, fight and fuck, the Mole is back for a new season, American Idol is still a ratings juggernaut but their winners will barely be remembered a decade from now, one of the networks is now ripping off Spike TV's MXC with I Survived A Japanese Game Show but it will still be funny, American Gladiators is back and probably employs Victor Conte on its medical staff, Flavor still hasn't found love, Brett Michaels still wears too much eyeliner and Tila Tequila is still a whore.

    It's all on The Soup, really.

    42 is Hitchhiker's Guide I believe. I stand by 4 for Back to School without consulting Google, consequences be damned.

    EDIT: Upon further review, maybe you weren't contradicting me.

    That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane and Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
    Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs.
    Feed it off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength, Ladder start to clatter with fear fight down height.
    Wire in a fire, representing seven games, a government for hire and a combat site.
    Left of west and coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck.

    Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped.
    Look at that low playing! Fine, then.
    Uh oh, overflow, population, common food, but it'll do.
    Save yourself, serve yourself.
    World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and the revered and the right, right.
    You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign towers.
    Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.
    Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting.
    Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.
    Light a candle, light a votive. Step down, step down.
    Watch your heel crush, crushed, uh-oh, this means no fear cavalier.
    Renegade steer clear!
    A tournament, tournament, a tournament of lies.
    Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide.
    Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
    Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!
    You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it. can't I have some time alone?
    It's the end of the world as we know it can't I have some time alone? and I feel fine...fine...

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it. can't I have some time alone?
    It's the end of the world as we know it can't I have some time alone? and I feel fine...fine...
