The world will indeed "end" for about 150,000 people on December 21, 2012.

Same as other days.

What gets me is that Kennedy himself said that the Cuban Missile Crisis had about a 50/50 chance of going full-blown Armageddon (so I've heard), and I've seen a huge climate change in the Twin Cities over the last 30 years, not to mention the Microsoft/Halliburton/Wackenhut/Facebook Borg putting its tentacles everywhere. So what are people worrying about? Ten-headed creatures with swords for tongues singing "Holiest of holies" when blonde-haired, blue-eyed, Marlboro-smokin' Jesus comes swooping down from the sky on a dragon, yeehah!, to smite all them gay-marrying pothead atheists who think religious people are nuts. No, it's not the world's nuclear arsenal we have to worry about, but the Four Horsemen playing polo with peoples' skulls while the Ned Flanderses of the world sprout wings and flit off. But I digress...

Dad, NASA called you an idiot.

What? You're going to believe a bunch of lab-coat squints over a carved rock from an extinct civilization?

NASA should say, "frankly we don't know if the world is going to end or not. But if you think it might, it's probably wise to off yourself now and beat the rush"

jawkneefive: I don't know why people keep referring to the Mayan calendar and thinking it means the world is going to end. There has to be some kind of logic behind it.

My completely uneducated guess is that the calendar simply resets itself, much like a clock. Maybe planetary alignment is like the hour and the minute hand both being on '12'...time for a new cycle. Supposedly they were great astronomers.

I will however prepare for possible planetary annihilation by washing my sheets, because on the 22nd, I'm sleeping and you bet your ass I'm gonna be real comfortable.

If only there was a way we could find the answer to your question...

vodka: This is the same NASA that believes in Global Warming?

Yes. Global Climate Change is the myth, but the end of the world next week is the truth.

I'm really disappointed that none of you Farkers figured it out already. As a member of the only One True Religion*, I know for certain that the world ends on July 5th, 1998 at 7:00 AM when the Xist spaceships arrive to rupture all of us Subgenii away from the Earth moments before all Hell breaks loose and hordes of zombie vampire mutant hipster Pinks take over the world. You might think that 1998 was maybe 14 years ago or something, but you're wrong, buddy. That's 1998 on the REAL super-secret calendar, not the screwed-up Conspiracy calendar in common use today. The world hasn't ended yet; ergo, it can't possibly be 1998 yet. When the world ends, it WILL be July 5th, 1998 and I'll be laughing like a hysterical fool at you Normals when I'm flying off to the Planet of the Scuba Sex Goddesses.

*Church of the Subgenius, praise "BoB"!

Swoop1809: One of my coworkers said his wife believes the world is going to end on the 21st. He said she's been buying up canned food and has 50 gallon drums of water in the basement. She thinks everything is going to break down and everyone will be put in death camps or something. His words were "I am living with a nut case, but she has a gun now so I don't say anything"

She is also a cat rescuer so they have 20 cats. I have no idea how he puts up with her

He's probably hoping she's right.

I wholeheartedly support this initiative, right after the signing of donor cards.

The really interesting thing is that even if you take the Mayan mythology as gospel, they aren't even predicting the end of the world. It is merely one of their longer cycles, not unlike 2001 when our calendar predicted not the end of the world, but a new millenium.

As long as Honey Boo Boo is still on the air, I am keeping with the idea of everything ending next week.

Why would I listen to those government-controlled eggheads when I can listen to Nancy Lieder, who talks with aliens?
