Don't forget to bring a towel.
The day draws near, are we ready?
Don't forget to bring a towel.
All my failures in life recently will be wiped clean when the world is destroyed
Are we talking all of reality here or just South America?
Just watch, someone is going to play six degrees of connect the dots with whatever political/astrological/mana derived event into the next ever-impending apocalypse of the imagination, when nothing happens 12/21.
Someone finds proof God is a women. She pulls the plug.
I'm going to grab a 6 pack and enjoy chilling online watching all the crazies go nuts when the world doesn't end.
Anyone have some good suggestions for boards where all the Lumie's hang out?
There needs to be a place where people can come and confess all off the stupid shit they pulled because they honestly believed it was the end of the world. Telling their bosses off... spending all their money... fucking random strangers... finally using the GOOD towels, total insanity stuff.
I have to admit, I had some time off work a while back, and I probably spent a good 10 hours trolling the 2012 forum on survivalistboards.com . There are some SEVERELY demented people over there. People that are absolutely sure they have been abducted by aliens *multiple times*. One wrote a whole post on how he killed a small gray alien. One believed that he was abducted, and that they physically removed his brain, copied it, and then put his brain back into his body, and the copy in a jar, and that he was able to see from both points of view at the same time (I know, no eyes on the copy, etc.) Almost all of them believe in Niburu or whatever the supposed planet is that these retards think is like hiding on the other side of the sun waiting to smash into earth. They believe in magical numbers, prophecies from Alzeimer patients, and of course Nostradamus. If you troll over there, look for jimmykeller or icesplitter. Absolutely insane.
At least it is on a FRY day.
I'll take my population well done please.
I really wish someone would cover this shit like election night. send out field reporters. host interviews, the whole 9.
Last minute chrimtmas shoppers are going to clog stores more than usual after the apocolypse doesn't happen on the 21st and they find out they now have to get out and buy presents.
I haven't followed any of this, was this an actual prediction or did their calander just stop on that date?
Does anyone in this community actually believe shit is going to end? If so call it now.
No, even if they somehow knew it would happen , it would have been months ago due to the addition of leap years.
I don't think the world will end.
I still betting there will be some kick ass end of the world parties though. Seems like a halfway decent theme for a party.
End of the world party at my house, just in case, I won't be drinking.
Some people will wake up on 12/22 sure as shit feeling like their world should have ended the previous day.
What time is this supposed to happen? 00:00:01 ? 09:43:39? High Noon? It's a Friday, so this is important.
LoL just realized I took the day off so if the world does end at least I will not be at that shit I work at. Seriously fuck that place I hope the earth opens up and shallows our building first.
I like to think we get a technological fix for most of this by 2050 but maybe the odds go up.
Of course eventually, on a long enough timeline, the survival rate drops to zero.
Kiribati. So probably the world will be over before most Americans even get off work on Thursday.

Seeing as to how the Mayans setup shop around 90°L I'd say more like 12-11 Central.
Seriously though, yeah the Mayans actually had a pretty advanced calendar, and did freaky stuff like know about the 11 year solar cycle. And they were pretty advanced in Astronomy, Language and Architecture. But they were also brutal savages who performed live human sacrifices and worshiped corn (the crop) as an almighty god.
All in all I'm very disappointed the Mayans are in fact a bunch of idiots and the world won't be ending on the 21st
I just hope anybody who actually believes doesn't go crazy and start looting shops and killing people.
Well, they did that on Black Friday, but on a larger scale.

Title: So When I was Young I Killed What You Call A Grey Alien.
I Killed it with a Knife, but they got the Body and Took it away. It still Haunts me knowing that they remind me of Camel Spiders, but in a Way they actually helped me to accept Things that horrify me.
Atleast I can say that I've never been "Abducted", and that they will never "Get me".
If they even tried, it would be their End.
It's like the "Creeps" won't let me live comfortably, but I don't let them get away with it Either.
Once as a kid I had an eerie experience, I remember waking up and feeling like something was terribly wrong and walked around our farm house, must've been between 7 and 9 years old. I don't remember seeing any of them (greys) back then but that feeling, it's the same when they suppress you to sleep.
I only know the feeling from when it happened twice recently, but thinking back on that it was very similar. So we are a big science experiment. I should smash the matrix computer with a wrench, because I know where it lives, aliens be damned. Everything be damned really, if I smash it the universe will fail to exist, there would again be nothing.
Would nothing be preferable to something? Probably if the something is constant pain. Smash with wrench, don't smash with wrench. I am confounded by the linear existence that is reality. We think we have choice. Obviously I can't smash with wrench because I exist.
Sometimes thinking out loud is just as confusing to others.
No I don't suffer migraines or take medication, and no they didn't speak to me (though I tried verbally to communicate to no avail during one encounter where they performed a medical procedure on my back).
A couple of the encounters were in near dream states like the one mentioned above (suppressed mental activity) so the memory of it is more like a dream memory than reality, but there are a few events which occurred in lucid reality.
In my basement one night around 3 am after all my friends had gone offline I went to the bathroom before I turned in, and looking in the window at me was a small creature, about 2 feet tall, which when I looked at it ran away into the night.
It walked upright on 2 thin legs and was frail in appearance though ran ably enough when I saw it. I didn't see details as it was silhouetted from the moonlight but I saw its silhouette clearly enough to realize it was no animal or human.
The other event which is out of place (and this one still hurts my eyes when I think about it...) is I was awake, in a jar or clear tube filled with a transparent fluid, no body, no mouth, just a brain in a jar with needles connected to a machine that penetrated into my eyeballs, I could feel them but with the machine off I could also see past them and through the fluid my brain was suspended in to see a (slightly blurry) short gray aliens face. I used photoshop to try and recreate it a bit, it's close to the one I linked there, though not exact.
It was doing something to the machine I'm connected to, the one I'm probably in even now, being deceived into believing is reality when my reality is that I'm merely a brain connected to a highly advanced computer.
Anyway, after I grasped the situation I was in (not having a body, mouth, or any kind of sensory input except the dull pain from the needles in my eyes), I noticed him reach to my right and as he did, I was instantly back in my body in what you might call a lucid waking state, the way I am right now and you probably are, there was no transition, I was just instantly back in my body in the here and now.
That event lasted less than 30 seconds before I was back in what you would consider to be reality with no discernible difference between what I am experiencing now.
There are other events but those put everything I need to know in perspective for me quite well. I'm no more than a brain in a jar connected to a highly advanced alien computer. My reality is an illusion, I've seen the magician.
Haha ok I can't take wading through their stupidity any more!
Didn't people sell off all their worldly possessions back in the 80's when the rapture was suppose to suck them all up into the sky?
I'll be watching craigslist in hopes in fleecing people of their shit at pennies on the dollar.

no the world isnt ending and if im wrong may we all be crushed from above somehow.
It actually happens more often than you think. There was a massive one back in the 19th century iirc, the bible and Revelations has hardwired the idea of some apocalyptic end of the world into our civilization. Personally I don't see why people find the idea so appealing, but there you go.
" I wonder if you are destined to be forgotten. Will your life fade in the shadow of greater beings?"
It's win win being sane.
If it turns out all the logical thinkers are wrong and the world does indeed end, then all the people who are right will be too busy getting burned to death to say "I told you so."
I remember reading in Kiplinger's this ass hole had his entire families teeth pulled and dentures done for Y2K because he felt society was going to crumble and there wouldn't be any dentists. I think it was an issue or two before the non event. Amazing what gets stupid people riled up.

Oh a related note: Back when that old minister predicted the Rapture I read an article that a group of atheists had offered to take care of the pets of those who thought the world was going to end. What became of that after the world failed to end? Did they hand the pets back or what?
Im pretty sure the deal was something like- For $100 "when" the rapture hit, the atheist would go to the persons house and retrieve the animal and take care of it. Kind of like pet insurance.
something of that nature.
the mayans were so good at predicting the future in their calendars they couldnt even predict their own demise. way to miss the fucking boat quetzokuato!
That's a great infographic there Lambourne.
One of the main reasons for the hype around the "end" of the Mayan calendar in my opinion is the cultural clash between the Western linear model of time and the Mayan (and others) cyclical model.
The linear model by default has a beginning and an end. It is so pervasive in Western society that it's practically impossible not to be drowned in apocalyptic visions of the future end times: The biblical Apocalypse and return of Christ for the Christians; the Deep Freeze, or the universe's implosion (Gib Gnab) by the scientists, depending on whether they think the universe will expand forever, or cycle back and collapse; the zombie apocalypse for nerds; the rise of the robots for geeks; the list goes on.
So when people hear of the end of a cycle, many instinctively view it as The End, with a capital "E", oblivious to the fact that they are placing their linear model on a cyclical one.
i was expecting major events of mass crazyness all around the world from ppl freaking out, but so far, they have been few and minor
not to mention that fucking Requiem banned Lumie. Screw the whole board thing, that was the worst thing he did and no one mention it
anyone able to contact him and get him here? we need our lulz
maybe i had to be more precise: i was expecting crazyness not just the 21st, but in the month before the date
Maybe we can introduce Lummie to my mother, shes like to pick up strays these days.
All I know is there better be some fucking zombie's or I will be highly disappointed.
Anyone who believes the world will end on 12/21/12 deserves to be sodomized by a ballistic missile. Enough said.
I, for one, am really excited about the new Steve Carell movie.
Severe Space Weather Events: Understanding Societal and Economic Impacts National Research Council (2008).
Here's the page that matters, page 92.
That chart talks about a "geomagnetic reversal" of the poles (not any time soon that I understand), do you guys think this will effect GPS in anyway?
"the orbital period is roughly 12 hours - contrary to popular belief, GPS satellites are not in geosynchronous or geostationary orbits"

I already put this in the political thread because I forgot we had a 21/12/12 thread, but pretty funny shit from a usually boring PM. Amazed she actually did it.
In an amazing, 50 second clip released Thursday, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard delivers a perfectly deadpan doomsday address that is as hair-raising as it is hilarious.
The clip, which was filmed to promote a tongue-in-cheek local radio station's breakfast show, Sky News notes, warns that predictions of the end of the world this December are both correct and unavoidable.
Surrounded by Australian national flags, Gillard begins, "My dear remaining fellow Australians. The end of world is coming. It wasn't Y2K, it wasn't even the carbon price. It turns out that the Mayan calendar is true."
The so-called Mayan apocalypse is slated to strike on Dec. 21, despite the best efforts of scientists and government officials attempting to dispel the rumors. (The Russian government, for example, reassured the country's citizens last week.)
In the video, Gillard vows to fight for her citizens to the end -- whether that end comes in the form of "flesh-eating zombies, demonic hell-beasts or the total triumph of K-Pop."
Flexing her comedic chops, the politician ends by highlighting the silver lining.
"At least this means I won't have to do Q&A again," she says in a reference to an Australian TV show where politicians usually have to face tough questions from the audience, according to Reuters.
"What Australian doesn't mind a laugh from time to time? Anyway, the world's going to end tomorrow so shouldn't you be writing about that?" a representative for the prime minister's office told the Herald Sun.
The outspoken Gillard made global headlines earlier this year after she excoriated a fellow politician for hypocrisy and sexism on the Parliament floor.
" I wonder if you are destined to be forgotten. Will your life fade in the shadow of greater beings?"
Just a question. Does anyone really, truly believe anything is going to happen on the 21st that isn't a man-made bullshit catcher? It'll be just another day for me, the end of a long work week and looking forward to the extended days off due to the holidays.
I'm getting pretty tired of the hype. It has nothing to do with the way I go about my daily business.
I do admit though that I'm looking forward to the cries of the believers. Their tears will be delicious for some time to come. [/cartman]

AFAIK, the only thing that might happen on the 21st is that Congress might decide not to come back to fix the Fiscal Cliff before January. However every board needs a good Doomsday thread so maybe we can get the mods to change the date once we're past 12/21
the real "end of the world" scenario is the fact that the federal reserve is buying up all the mortage backed securities of the united states at an alarming rate and using our money might I add, they will become by far the biggest landholder in american history, who here thinks that will be a "good" thing.
I offer the following response to your actual question: the entire premise of the question is idiotic, and no one gives a fuck about your delusions. Shut the fuck up.
I am pretty sure that the crown is the biggest landholder in american history, and that the federal reserve will never hold as much land as the crown did (before you colonists stole it!).
The Mayan 'Prophecy' is stupid why not talk about other things in this thread?
Someone somewhere is hiding in a bunker waiting for it to begin.

Well, that was two with one stone right there.
And as far as the end of the world? That happens every 30 to 40 years or so. Every generation experiences the end of their world, it's just that it usually becomes their children's world at that point and doesn't come to a complete halt. So whenever some elderly person gets a far off look in their eye and starts reminiscing, it's basically like a mini apocalypse going off in their mind. Getting old is definitely not for the weak or the faint of heart, it's probably the scariest thing anyone can do.

Oh hai guys. Well it's 11am here in bonny old England. A cursory glance out of my window suggests all is business as usual, it's actually quite mild and sunny.
I have run out of milk though, so I had to have coffee this morning using powdered milk, maybe that's what the Mayans predicted?
If look closely, you can almost see the end coming. Just a little longer!
World still quite here in not-so-sunny Germany.
Too bad, now I have to go in to work.
I guess we'll have to keep on trying till we run out of cake.
the whole shit with the board is nothing compared to the ripoff Requiem did to us when he banned lumie
for fuck sake we were waiting for this moment for the past 3 years.....
I saw this guy and his family get into their bunker last night on television. I wished I had the monies for going there with a bunch of friends and set off fireworks, guns and anything else we could get our hands on right over his underground bunker. Why? Because he was such a dick about screw my neighbors I'm surviving. I wonder how he is getting along with them this morning.
it's starting. reports of brimstone & sunder on the east coast.
The cable went out this morning and it was hell trying to convince the kid that it wasn't the start of the end.
