Man On Verge Of Self-Realization Instead Turns To God

AUSTIN, TXA major existential breakthrough was averted Friday when, moments before he had a realization of monumental personal significance, 29-year-old local resident Darrell Gatsas instead turned to God. "He was so, so close to discovering something truly fundamental about himself and his place in the universe, but nopehe went with God," close friend Peter Rankin, 27, said. "For a second there it seemed like he was going to seriously consider the cause-and-effect relationship of his own actions and elevate himself to a new level of compassion and understanding, but then he suddenly changed course and asked God to swoop in and fix everything." Reached for comment, God chuckled to reporters that Gatsas is, indeed, a real piece of work.

3. The Myans may have been on to something with this 'new era' stuff......

The noises made by republicans, the NRA and the like sound like satire.
In the mean time The Onion starts to make sense.
