So it begins. Prepping Russian style

Some people fear that the end of the world is coming in December and have stocked up on food, while others killed a cat and broke their mother’s leg in preparation for Doomsday.

The twin brothers, 43, in Novokuznetsk locked themselves in their apartment, broke their mother’s leg, and killed the innocent cat in preparation for the end of the world, local police said.

More on this story:
"There were two men born in 1969 and their mother in the apartment. One of them broke their mother’s leg. Both are registered in a psychiatric hospital as being schizophrenic. They were preparing for the end of the world,” he said.

He said the men killed the cat “to take its nine lives to help them survive the end of the world.”

“They were saying that there were demons in the mirrors. Their ship left, and they remained on Earth, and had to prepare to survive the apocalypse.”

The twins were taken to a psychiatric hospital.

Psychotic episodes are often triggered by stress...fear of the EOTHWAWKI is certainly stress inducing if you believe it is imminent.

A reason we should all be aware of our surroundings and people in the coming weeks.

In other words, keep your heads, people. The Mayans didn't have some sort of unique, privileged understanding of the cosmos. Any more than Harold Camping did.

Stay calm, carry on, and take advantage of all those sweet deals on like-new survival gear that start showing up on Craigslist in January. :clap:

Yeah, pretty much the only reason I'm paying attention to that date. Weird ass reactions from weird ass people.

Y'know, my calendar runs out every December. I just go to Office Depot and get a new one. No big deal. Fuckin' Mayan drama queens. :D

I like the post one of my friends on fb shared. "Utility companies should shut off services for a couple hours on Dec 21, 2012 just to freak people out. Yes, I know. It is a sick and twisted joke, but the look on peoples faces when their tv won't turn on in the morning? Especially if they didn't believe in it to begin with?

As funny as it sounds,

It would lead to mass panic and hysteria...not the good kind

If Stephen Hawking tells us that TEOTWAWKI is going to happen on 21 December, then I'll start worrying.

And carry an extra mag (that'd make three) for my EDC.

And maybe kill a cat to get it's nine lives.

For those that want to know the Mayan calendar was a series of rings that in a way can keep going on and on its just the rings all reset back to a starting point like in this picture.

Image

Some of the calendars look like Aztec or other calendars from the area around that era but with a Mayan twist. But it was made to just keep going and going. Just do a search for Mayan calendars and look at the images.

I don't believe the world is going to end Dec 21st, but I do believe crime rates will spike simply because of how prevalent this doomsday prediction is. Anarchy is a state of mind, and though I expect that most people will not do anything rash on the 21st, I'd wager that a few people will. Unfortunately, a few unbalanced individuals can cause serious problems for the rest of us -- look at the Aurora theater shooting, Columbine, Virgina Tech, etc.

There may be people in your neighborhood/city/school/place of employment who are taking this doomsday prediction much more seriously than the rest of us, and some of those people might not be quite "right in the head". The threat of the end of the world is doubtful, but the threat of crazy people is legit IMO.

I, for one, have some sick time to burn before the end of the year. I'll be taking that day off work and staying in the safety of my home...with a glass of scotch, a cigar, and a firearm close by

:awesome:

Last night, I watched the movie, "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," with Steve Carell. It was pretty good.

Eh... the History Channel is doing the whole "Countdown to Armageddon" thing, basically just reruns or reedits of garb they already did in 2009, 2010, and 2011.

I agree with what has already been said about "not wanting to cause mass panic or fright during the height of the 2012 holiday shopping season" It is just bad business LMAO

I dunno, I already put my 2 cents in elsewhere somewhere in some thread out there about this date, the winter solstice, is jut the end of another celestial cycle and the beginning of a new one just like 365 days ends one cycle and begins another, we just call it a year. Same goes for all cycles. It is just a cycle. It was presented best HERE:

It's JUST AN ASTROLOGICAL CYCLE and I think everyone already accepts and knows that so it's marketability is in the shitter now LOL
