That, and the Maxfield Parrish-like shots in places, were the only good things about that movie. If they labored the metaphor any harder we'd have to emancipate it.

Now excuse me while I stock up on canned goods.

Brian Cox steps in to dispel myths about 'rogue' planet and Mayan apocalypse.

Yeah, well he also ran the Weapon X program. You really going to trust that guy?

Some day there really will be a rock that hits a 7 or 8 on the Torino scale and nobody outside the science community will pay any serious attention thanks to all the spinning-head idiots blathering on and on about doomsday rocks.

/ my predictions, unlike the make-believe Mayan ones, come from a sound place: the assumption that the vast majority of people on this planet are complete morons when it comes to the vast majority of subjects

I have been wondering what the title of that series was for the past few years. Thanks for posting this pic!

I wonder, though, how scientists are able to successfully debunk the "intelligently controlled wormhole-traveling alien infested planet" hypothesis.

FTFA:
"This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 -- hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012."

Which has always been bullshiat. There is no evidence that the Mayans believed that this was the end of the cycle. That conclusion only holds if you believe that the final gear of their clock/calendar has 13 teeth. The only reason anyone thinks that is because SOME of the other gears have 13 teeth. But 13 isn't even the most common number of teeth on a gear from the known gears. That distinction belongs to the number 40.

So, in short, all of you people who put any credence into the idea that ANY of the Mayans thought this was the end of time are total farking tards, and you should kill yourself in a kerosene fire before you breed and pollute the planet with your idiocy.

"What if Nibiru is an intelligently controlled planet inhabited by ETs?" asked one conspiracy website after the discovery of the free floating planet.

Then, this becomes inevitable:

Weaver95: well, if we all die due to a rogue planet smashing into the ocean then at least I won't have to worry about being unemployed anymore.


The ocean? If it's a rogue planet, doesn't really matter where it hits the Earth. Hell, it wouldn't even need to hit the Earth to kill us all. All it'd need to do is come close enough to screw up our orbit or even our Moon's orbit.

December 22nd can't get here fast enough. I laughed at the Harold Camping disciples when they cried about the Rapture, and I'll laugh at the Mayan Apocalypse fanboys for the same reason. Then maybe we can go a year or so without a popular end-of-days fantasy and actually get something accomplished? Maybe? Please? It's impossible for this species to think long-term if we're always indulging the idiotic belief that some cosmic force is moments away from turning reality off.

It is kinda funny that people laugh off Christians who believe in a Scripturally-based doomsday but think the Mayan stuff is totes legit. And as far as I can tell the Mayans weren't really predicting so much as measuring. But their measuring device was only so long. If you measure with a 12" inch ruler, does that mean nothing greater than 12" exists?

Both are extremely funny, yet frustrating to deal with. I have one friend that's totally into the whole end of world scenario of 2012. Trying to convince her otherwise is near impossible, but she still won't give me her stuff /shrug.

Aside from TV Republicans, I've not met or seen anyone who believes in the Rapture, but maybe they just know how foolish it all sounds when they say it out load. /shrug

This completely blows my mind. It's kind of fun needling people I know who were really into the December 21, 2012 thing a few years ago and who now have gone completely silent about it. I wonder if they are bothering to by Christmas presents?

These end-of-days theories always make me think about a video game called Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines.

***spoiler alert***
***spoiler alert***

The whole game is about you trying to find and open an ancient sarcophagus that is said to hold either a source of infinite power or an unspeakable evil. The game really builds this up over a long period of time, and at the end of the game you find out that 1) it was just a mummy and 2) someone replaced the mummy with a bomb in order to kill the power-mad jerks who were fighting for it. Depending on how much you bought into the ancient power/evil theories you could choose to have your character stay (where they would be blown up) or walk away.

Let's just say I chose the explodey option.

Most of their "gears" actually have 20 teeth. Which makes the "ending at 13" thing really stupid.
