I would assume this applies to dinosaurs.

well i believe that all good things come to an end,history has shown this to be fact...with what is going on in our world now & retro back a decade ago, our way of life has changed. i have been a prepper all my life, so it is just a way of life with me that makes sense.example: the ammo i bought a year ago @ 5 bucks a box now cost 8 to 10 bucks,60 cents for that can of beans then now cost 80 to 110 now ( of course i bought them by the cases ) so my logic is to buy low & stock to save later,not to mention the gas to go back and forth ... y2k ,i did not worry because it was pre planned years before just like getting snowed in for a week or two,back ups are in place.common sense ,why does the squirrel stock up when the nuts are ripe,so he will have something to eat till the next harvest... now as far as 2012.who knows what will be going on then but to be fore warned is to be fore armed ,makes perfect sense... always remember,never trust a fart...

I honestly don't think 12/21/2012 is going to be anything other than the winter solstice...but I think on any given date it's possible for a SHTF to happen either on a local, National or International scale. I do though value all the advice I will get from this forum about how I can get prepared for any future emergencies.
For example in 2009 & 2010 the U.K. & Ireland have experienced the most severe winters in decades. I was stuck in my house unable to get up my lane unless my husband could drive me in his 4WD Jeep. We have a good generator & plenty of fuel to run it but food supplies in the shops were starting to get low as the knock on effects of the 4 weeks of severe snow & ice kicked in. If it had continued for another 2 weeks or longer even the basic provisions would have started to dwindle. I plan to get prepared in case it's like that again this winter :)

My loins are officially girded. I do hope the apocalypse or non-apocalypse happens soon though, as the duct tape and rubber insulation that I girded my loins with is chafing horribly.

The latest end of times date is Saturday 6pm May 21, 2011 so 2012 cannot possibly right.

I do not know the fellow but he did predict this same event in 1994.

My wife has her birthday shortly after this date and has informed me that the world will not end until after her birthday...unless I forget it ...in which case the world will end for me anyway on her birthday.

December 21, 2012 shouldn't be anyone's fear. It's the months and weeks leading to it when all the fatalists start going nuts. Might be time to put in the anti-zombie shutters and gates.

I still say no. Do I think about what would happen if it did? Why yes I do, but I use it as a mental exercise.

I'm pretty sure we'd survive something like that, but if they were to suddenly announce that they were getting MARRIED?

Well folks, it would appear I'm only 1 hour and 20mins away from surviving 21/05/2011! Awesome. As yet no reports of NZ suffering earthquakes today. Which is always nice.
