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.

Linkster: Well, the calender itself doesn't predict shiat. Other Glyphs DO however.


That one glyph predicts a jaguar may poop in one's slippers.

I'm not saying the world's going to suffer a catastrophe on Dec. 21... All I'm saying is don't bother asking me for any of these thousand cans of soup.

jake_lex: calendar running out on 12/21


That's not even the correct date, it's just one ingrained in pop culture.

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

"In Russia, people are hoarding essential supplies, even more so than usual. "


So in other words Stoli Vodka is sold out.

fusillade762: What's all this I keep hearing about Doomsday Peppers? Are they really that hot?



Hot and trendy...until December 22.

How many Scoville units does it take to destroy the world?

No India? Too bad, another rice panic would have been entertaining.

djcunix: If the world is going to end, why bother to hoard?


That's what I was thinking.

But I do think it would be fun to have a secret underground bomb shelter where we could hide out until all the bad stuff went away.

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.

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.

Mugato: 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.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: 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.
