Yeah, my mother in law will be over to help us celebrate the solstice.

Also attending is my super conspiracy theorist father-in-law.

Should be LOADS of fun.

I was talking about the end of the world thing with a woman I just started dating.  I said I didn't believe it was going to happen but why take chances, the best thing to do was to stay in bed and have lots of sex.  She responded with, "that's a great idea, let's do that together."  Mind you, we haven't been intimate yet, so this was the best thing she could have said.

Meanwhile in China ....

A search for "doomsday" on Taobao returns listings for more than 4,500 items. A few, such as wellington boots, are practical but most are items that have been put on "Special Doomsday Sale" and touted as seasonal bargains. They include face moisturiser for when the Earth is consumed in fire, and a ten-for-the-price-of-eight deal on Yangcheng Lake crabs for those who want to splash out on their last meals.

Are there actually people who take this end-of-the-world crap seriously? I mean, has anybody really met one in real life? Internet and on TV doesn't count.

For example, if it's a coworker, why are they even at work this week? That's a clear sign of lack of faith. They're just yanking your chain.

I suppose that's better than having a Harmonic Convergence.
I didn't hear it correctly the first time and thought they were talking about the Harmonica Virgins.

It didn't have to allow for leap years because it falls on the shortest day of the year, Winter Solstice, which is leap-year independent. In other words, the Mayan's didn't say the end of this era was 12/21/2012, they said it was this years Winter Solstice which is an absolute that is independent of the calendar you are using.

Also, this is a simplified explanation of what the end of the Mayan calendar is really about. This is not my personal belief, but it is essentially what their belief was:

The Mayan calendar is broken into 13000 year "eras". Each one is supposed to be an era of significant change in mankind and has, for lack of a better word, a "theme". The eras are not cut and dry of course, so the theme of the upcoming era will "begin" in the prior one, but the people living through it will have no idea what the theme is. Only looking back 10,000+ years into the era will it be identifiable, if even then.

The theme of ~11000 BCE to 2012 was obviously "Civilization", as the first truly sedentary cultures we can identify started around 12000 BCE, and civilization has now effectively spread over the entire world. The theme of the era prior to that was "expansion", as that is the period when humans finished spreading out over effectively the entire face of the earth. The theme of the next 13000 years is very hard to say. It could be inter or intra-solar colonization. It could be related to something we are doing with computer or genetics (rise of the machines, the "perfect" man, etc.). It could be the end of mankind entirely. We don't know, but we have begun all those things, and more, so it could be any of them.

What it won't be though is the end of the world. (This is the only part on which I fully agree with the Mayans).

It's not a single alignment axis. Some are pedantic good, some pedantic neutral, and others pedantic evil. But mostly the third one.

I've thought the same thing...is there a specific time somewhere to this doomsday? What if it happens at the stroke of midnight on the 21st?

You do if you are not consistently using Kelvin, as people are just as likely to think you meant 8000º of the prior scale.
