The Y2K hubbub was a lighthearted and whimsical misadventure. A wayward romp, if you will.

This? Not so much.


From the article: "So, it seems there should be a December 22, 2012."

YOU DON'T SAY.

The Y2K thing, unlikely as it was, was actually based on something that could happen. Now, there were a ton of scumbags stirring up fear to cash in, but, yeah, if a lot of work hadn't been done, some bad stuff could have happened.

This is total bullshiat. Even with the most cursory understanding of Mayan culture, you should know that that calendar running out on 12/21 is not a prediction of the end of the world at all. It's...just time to start the new calendar.

That's exactly it. At least the people had something relatively concrete to panic about.

Some Mayan mammajammas didn't carve a new calendar and BAM, everyone with a screw loose thinks that something big will happen. It's just... gah. Aggravating.

Goddammit, when the 21st comes and goes will you finally STFU? I'm sorry your life sucks so much but the world is not going to end for several thousand years.

Unless Nicolas Cage looks at the numbers and thinks otherwise.

And you KNOW Nicolas Cage is going to look at the numbers.

Well, I hope I'm prepared, I bought some extra Gillette Fusion razors cartridges and a lot more breakfast cereal than I normally keep in the cupboard. You don't want to experience the apocalypse hungry for breakfast and stubbly.

What are H2 and National Geographic going to do for programming after Dec. 22?

Well, the calender itself doesn't predict shiat. Other Glyphs DO however.
 
2012-12-08 05:41:12 PM  
They have extra food to hoard in those places?!?

Of course Mr. Hubbard is going to say he is listening to "experts" about the signs. He sells bomb shelters, he wants you to be a sucker and spend lots and lots of money... for your safety, of course.

I think I can say, unequivocally, that we're all going to die slow, painful, horrendous deaths on December 21st, 2012.
So, stop trying to wuss out of it.

The end of the world, as we know it, could be at any time. No one, including the Mayans, can do anything more than guess when or how it will occur.

Tool said it best:
Some say a comet will fall from the sky
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves
Followed by fault lines that cannot sit still
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip-shiats...

...Because I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I want to see the ground give way
I want to watch it all go down
Mom, please flush it all away
I want to see it go right in and down
I want to watch it go right in
Watch you flush it all away

Tool didn't say anything "best". The world isn't going to end before the world burns out from the sun. Humans will survive until then. True, that doesn't make for good sci-fi or shiatty music but still, that;s how it's going down.

Bomb, shelter, the true man cave. Hell, I wouldn't mind having one, kind of like a detached basement. Throw up a big screen, kegerator, couple recliners, gigE wifi...

S*** hitting the fan differs for everyone. It can be anything from losing a job, to a hurricane, to a earthquake to economic collapse. Sit for a moment, who is in your home? In an emergency do you have what your would need to take care of your family, maybe a few friends, if something would happen for a few days? a week?

What is your area prone to? Earthquakes? Flooding? Hurricanes? Large area full of people that are going to be scurrying for the food? Fighting in the streets for the least of essentials. Remember after the storm surge in NJ and NY. Where was the electricity? Where was the help? It was a few days getting there wasn't it. What if it was a bigger area, What if you were stuck with just your bag of cheetos and beer.

Good Luck buddy the government is not always going to be there to save you.

Here's what you're missing though. The people freaking out over 12/22 also go into hysterics every December 31st, believing fully that midnight will mark the end of the world.

I have always wanted one. I grew up in the 60's when nuclear fallout shelters were the rage. We had nuclear bomb drills at my elementary school along with tornado drills. I once asked my mother what if my older brother got locked out of our bomb shelter--would she let him in, along with the nuclear waste that would eventually kill us all? She said she would let him in. I was not happy with that answer.

I want my OWN nuclear fallout shelter.

That right there. But asking for reasoning seems futile.

It's not good to even read a FA like this. Likely to evaporate any belief in human reason. Of course, I believe man is basically irrational, so.....bring it on.

You are correct sir. What was I thinking¿? Let me rephrase ~ 'Mugato said it best'

better? cause that's how it's going down.
 
2012-12-08 06:41:20 PM  
well its got to one of the days coming up the mayans have a 1 in 1,825,000 chance so it could happen
 
2012-12-08 06:41:55 PM  
I do maintain that it's always a good idea to have a weeks worth of water and non-perishable food, and essential supplies stowed away in the event of a disaster. But these people go way too far.
 
2012-12-08 06:42:05 PM  
The best thing that could come from this is if all these nutjobs lock themselves in their bunkers until their food runs out while the world doesn't end.

Maybe the truly crazy ones will forget to leave air holes.

FTA

citizens of China, Europe, the Soviet Union and the US are "prepping" for the outside chance there could be something to the hysteria generated by a belief that the Mayan long count calendar signifies the end of the world
