Apocalypse Now?

It has been said (by the director of Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow) that the world will end in the year 2012. However, the same thing was said in 2000, and guess what? We're all still here. (While we're on the topic, how come the Mayans, Nostradamus, and all the other future-predictors only foresee earth-shattering, cataclysmic events and not everyday things like "On October 25th, 2009, there will be heavy eastbound traffic on the Belt Parkway beginning at 10 am?" That would be way more useful. And are we really supposed to believe that these ancient civilizations could see things thousands of years ahead of their time when Al Roker and the Doppler 4000 can't even accurately tell me what the weather will be like this afternoon? And isn't The Day After Tomorrow just plain ol' Wednesday?)

Anyhoo...back to the point at hand. One of the signs of the apocalypse is purported to be a swarm of locust, and we here at the Cyclones offices may be experiencing this harbinger of doom as we speak! Either that, or we have way too many fruit flies.

OK, OK. So they are actually just fruit flies and not evil insects prophesizing our doom (although that would be way more cool). And the fact that they are simply uninteresting non-world enders just makes it even more annoying to sit at your desk all day and feel like this:

In fact, if this infestation gets any worse, I may have to call Billy the Beekeper. And believe me, no one wants that type of extreme measure to be taken!
