I thought that world wide earth quakes would begin at 6pm local time is the beginning of the end, with the end ultimately coming in October.

has anybody had any friends mysteriously disappear? because if they are being raptured, they'll simply vanish from earth.

we'll see what happens at 6pm local time.

edit: 7:50 EST...all clear......now what?

Jeez, what happened to the Armageddon I was promised?

I was really looking forward to finally getting out from under this credit card debt.

What a bummer.

Well, the big light show didn't happen, so I guess all the high-school dropouts and deviants will have to find another ridiculous fantasy to masturbate to while mixing up a batch of poison kool-aid.

A bunch of guys at work had planned that should something happen they'd gather at Sporting Goods and take the guns and ammunition.

They should make an alliance to the guys who plan on taking over the food department, they can trade, develop a plan, and systematically take over IT ALL!

Garden might be tough, with all the rakes and whatnot, but technically they're part of 'the outside'. Hmmmm, Perhaps an alliance with the automotive department... Yeeeeessssssssss, the vehicles left in the bay can be armored up with racking.
And soon.... Target will fall. One by one, they will ALL FAIL!!! Bwwwaaaaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa...

I think he did say he worked at Chinamart. Well, that really puts a damper on my post sfth plans. How I am going to raid walmart if the employees get there first? I am going to have to give this some more thought. :D

My thoughts.............

Dear World,

Please stop freaking out about 2012. Our calendars ends there because
some Spanish people invaded our country and we got a little busy ok?

Sincerely,
The Mayans

Oh, I've had plenty of friends mysteriously disappear. I always thought it was the rapture but turns out it was usually something I said.

Yes I work at Wal Mart. What is even more disturbing is that two of our managers have "2012 Boxes". What the hell they are putting in those damn things that will get them through their supposed end of the world is beyond me.

Well, while at my friends place last friday she brought that whole 2012 topic up over dinner. We decided we´d rent a hunting cabin in the woods high on the mountain (should there be a flood), bring some supplies there and have a Big END OF ZEE WORLD party, just in case... :mrgreen:

That´ll rock!

This said I offer as conclusive proof for the umpteenth time.

My new American Express Card has an expiration date of 2015. I offer as further proof that my MS Outlook goes well into the future past 2012. I have not looked that far ahead but I am booking appointments in 2013.

If anyone knows that the world is ending it is American Express and Microsoft.

I say NOT, but the world certainly isnt getting safer and we are depleting resources faster than ever. Look at the history books, and listed to the experts, this road has to end soon.

Seriously though, the Mayan's were wiped out by the combination of external factors outside their control, and internal factors within their control. Why do people believe that they can predict the end of our civilization but not their own?

Many experts believe that it was climate change which wiped them out, some disagree. One thing most experts agree on is that the Maya's overly exploited a very fragile eco-system, and as their population grew the resources depleted. To tackle this they chopped down forests to make way for more farm land in an attempt to feed the masses, yet more farms depleted their already dwindling water supplies. Deplete forests and it's not only large animals that suffer, but everythign from the top of the ecosystem to the bottom. It's a known fact that the vast populations overburdened the available resources so it was just a matter of time.

Had the Mayans not depleted their natural resources, and seeked new hunting grounds to support their increasing populations then perhaps they would have survived the climate change, again this is an expert opinion and not mine.

We are doing the same as the Maya, however I think we have a few more years before it really becomes critical. This being said most of us live in western societies where most are able to put food on the table. Less developed societies may, or may not be worse off, may because their world is so fragile and they live on literally nothing, and may not because they have adapted incredibly well to scraping by.

I put my money on the tribes which live on the periphery of our modern civilization, who to this day are self sufficient becuase they rely on skills handed down over thousands of years.

That will never work didn't you see the movie? They ran into the top of the world's highest peak with their boat...

If 12/21/2012 doesn't happen, I bet 12/22/2012 will. Be the busiest Christmas Shopping day of the year. :D
