You know why American students are so bad at science…?

Here’s an example.. A story comes out that an asteroid may hit in 2032 (and another one in 2036, but that’s besides the point) .. and what does the news media collectively do? Put it at the end of their newscasts, or the back of the paper, and make a little funny quip about ‘better get your stockpile of food ready’ or something else they find funny.

But it’s not very funny to think that an life-altering event may take place—in our lifetimes! It’s not too humorous to imagine a world where food can’t grow, water is not clean, and everything eventually dies off.
Science is also mocked, left until the ‘end’ of the broadcast.. and when spoken about, changed into a political debate instead of scientific one..
Science is not respected much by this modern world.. And certainly kids in high schools aren’t given many examples in life of their piers respecting much of anything about it.
Believe in earth changes? You’re an elitist.
Scared of 2032’s asteroid strike? You’re a prepper..
All political.
Never scientific.. 
It is frustrating indeed.

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
