  • Pop Culture Signs That Doomsday Is Upon Us

    Think about the most famous people on TV these days. Jerry Seinfeld? Nope. Jennifer Aniston? Gone to the big screen. Instead, we have self-made reality TV stars like Bethenny Frankel and Kim Kardashian. Frankel recently made a reported $120 million by selling a line of low calorie cocktails to a major liquor distributor. Kim Kardashian reportely made $65 million in 2010. "Jersey Shore's" pouffy princess Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi got $32,000 to lecture to students at Rutgers University. Remember, these people got famous just by being themselves. Call it luck, call it talent, or call it a sign that the world's gone mad.

  • End of Days

    As the 1990s faded into the 2000s, it seemed one of the most disturbing epochs of music had finally come to an end -- the boy band era. But like a nightmare you just can't shake, it's back. New Kids on the Block and The Backstreet Boys are combining forces, touring this summer (assuming Doomsday doesn't destroy them, of course) to the delight of ... who, exactly?

    Maybe the world is about to end because humans seem to care more about their pets than they do about themselves. Time magazine reported in 2009 that annual spending on pets in the U.S. had reached $43 billion. After Doomsday does its work, perhaps cats and dogs will inherit whatever's left of earth.
