There has been a lot of hype about birds falling from the sky dead, a whole flock of them in Arkansas and now reports of it happening around the world.  Whole schools of fish have been found dead as well and a lot of people are crying that this is all a sign of the apocalypse in 2012.

Experts are reporting that these incidents happen all of the time, but because of the internet and immediate media coverage these days now people are actually hearing about it.  Wait, if this happens ALL of the time, then we would have heard about it before 2011, the internet was not invented last year.  I'm not sure if I believe that this is all apocalyptic, but I am worried that there really is something wrong with our ecosystem here or perhaps there has been top secret government testing and officials are trying to cover it up by having experts report that this is commonplace and not to worry to prevent some type of public hysteria.  Decide for yourself.
