Do you think the 2012 "prediction" is a load of bunkum or are you chalking up a pre emptive 100% success for death list this year and heading for the bunkers on Dec 20th?

And for the 2012ers out there....let the mocking, ridiculing and sarcasm commence :D

If it were true, what difference would heading for the bunkers make?

Lol my thinking exactly yet end of the worlders are stockpiling supplies and it seems that fallout shelters are selling like hot-cakes. Time for all good capitalists to start flogging the gullible "shelters" and parting the fools from their cash.

Although admittedly it does seem to be mostly Americans in the documentaries about the end of world survivalists.

Correct my logic here but, if the "end of the world" does happen, how are you going to know? surly by definition as we all are part of "the world" in the sense referred to by these doomsday merchants when the world ends so will we. . . Therefore we won't be around to say "gosh how interesting that was the end of the world"

Or did I miss something?

Best regards

Have not given much thought to it. We will likely get a first sign in November with the election here, although it could be argued that if the Olympics golds only go to athletes from countries who have names beginning with letters L, A and C that that may in fact be the first sign and the election would be the final warning.

And you will notice we have done quite well with our survivalist skills. Do you think trashy television shows such as Survivor are just a coincidence? They are designed to let people know that we can survive even in the harshest of conditions. (provided of course that there is an island for exile)

There was and still may be. The FBI among others was planning to shut all systems down which had been infected with the DNS Changer virus. Many servers took measures to keep things functioning but it's unknown how long this may last.

Yes there was. Chanticleer had announced it three or four times in news events in the Rose Garden.
Here you find more: Behind the Threat: FBI Internet Server Shutdown - ABC News use whichever search engine you favor to learn more.
Since there is a supposed Internet shutdown at least 4 times a year, most people have stopped giving it any regard. Keep a virus scan going and in most cases things will be safe.

Since the Mayans didn't really explain what they meant by the end of the world it could be any number of things. Since the Mayans ate a fair amount of corn products, and since the price of corn has recently risen dramatically due to a dire drought, this may be the end they were referring to.

At any rate we may well be around after the 'end' has come, we may be hurtled into outer space or collected by inhabitants from another planet seeking our superior knowledge....or maybe just planning to have us work their fields and frolic with their kinfolk before roasting us up as Klakamoghs Festival food.

The Mayan-forecast 'end of the world' is due tomorrow.

The Guardian has produced a video explaining the prediction. This is part 1.

Rather disconcertingly, there is no part 2.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN A MAYAN CITY, SOMEWHERE IN SOUTH AMERICA.

MAYAN CITIZEN: Hello Geoff, how are you getting on with that calendar?
MAYAN CALENDAR WRITER: Good thanks Bert, I'm up to December 21st 2012 already. Should be at year 3000 next Friday.
MAYAN CITIZEN: Thats great Geoff, what are you up to just now then?
... MAYAN CALENDAR WRITER: I'm just having a 5 minute break, my Nana found this funny plant with pointy leaves in her garden. No one knows what it is so I'm gonna see what its like if you smoke it!

And that is why the Mayan calendar stopped at 21st Dec 2012.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

From the facts that 21 December 2012 has passed throughout the world and that I am typing this, we can conclude that the executive branch of The End Corporation[1] performed to expectation: piss-poorly. I don't blame those poor Mayan astronomers for this abuse of their somewhat overblown calendar system.

As this was about the sixth time I've survived it, I expect the next End of the World as We Know It to be announced soon.

My family decided that the reason the end was nigh was because it was the day after my birthday and so at 12:01am central time I would decide I didn't want to be 47. At that point, I would manifest in my true form as some demon or anti-christ or Cthulu other highly destructive thing and wipe everyone out.

Ultimately, I decided I didn't want to clean up the mess afterward so I decided to let you good people live. All tribute can be sent via UPS.
