The end of the world
« on: April 21, 2011, 12:56:20 PM »
I'm confused on when this is. Supposedly April 19, 2011 at 8:12 Skynet became self aware. Now I'm hearing May 2011 earthquakes will destroy us until October of 2011. I've also heard December of 2012 is the end. Deep in my heart I know that the world will have to end in January or February when the Vikings finally win a Superbowl.

I read somewhere that the whole 2012 thing is wrong anyway, because when they made calculations based on the Mayan calendar, they presumed a variable to be something that was later determined to be a much larger number, so that calendar wouldn't run out until many years from now.  :)

I thought the world was supposed to end in the year 2000?

It really has gotten hard to keep track of the apocalypse these days.

If nature is what causes the end of civilization, I don't think it gives a fuh about our schedule.

The way I heard it was that 2012 was the end of a Mayan calendar and that was interpreted to be the end of the world, in a similar sense that since my Wrath of the Lich King calendar runs out on December 31, 2011, the world MUST end at that point.

From what I understand the mayans see it as the "end of THIS world" which doesn't mean necessarily an apocalypse. It could just mean a new phase of the earth that we don't notice really.

Now that's funny to me, as I had bad experiences as a teenager and young adult with Valentine's Days in leap years.  :)

sorry just incase no one gets it, my source (for that following day above) is from Ghostbusters II when Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murry) has guest on his talk show (world of the psychics) talking about the end of the work.

all though the world ending on v-day would be funny as hell.

but the correct response to my post (at least i was hoping for it) would have been:

Valentines Day....Bummer.

It could have been a room on the spaceship made to look like the hotel. I can't be sure about that
