I don't even have a calendar, I'm pretty sure that means this is all a dream and the world ended when I got rid of mine.

I have a friend who, whenever she visits her family who live here in California, happens to visit on a day we have an earthquake. She's visiting on Friday. I'm expecting to feel the earth move.

Maybe she's the bringer of all Earthquakes to places she visits, and seeing that California is on the San Andreas Fault, my suspicion is that the fault will begin move on December 21.

Im not sure an Earthquake near a fault like that would be that out of the ordinary, a large Earthquake, say near me might be however. We do get Earthquakes but not often. I think if one happened tomorrow it would be a coincidence since I dont believe this end of the world stuff.

Inevitably if Jesus walks out of a burning sky on that day, I really hope to see some of you guys on the other side... to be more descriptive: a place with fluffy clouds, milkshake waterfall, etc etc. Though I really hope that doesn't happen and our demise is brought to us by powerful alien overlords who need a new planet to live on.

P.S. Aussie here. There's a bright ball of fire in the sky, NASA has informed me that is called a Sun, and that we shouldn't panic because it signals that is it a period of time known as daylight.

Welp, we're at the final stretch here in America. Only hours away.


Here's a nice tune to enjoy while we're waiting for our impending doom:

So that's what that is. Here I was panicking over nothing.

Sometimes it starts to worry me
Cause lose, I don’t want to lose
Sight of who we are

From the mountains high
To the wave-crashed coast
There’s a way to find
Better days I know

It’s been a long hard ride
Got a ways to go
This is still the place
That we all call home

So, where are the disasters? Where are the solar flares? Where is the pole reversal? Where is Nibiru? Where are the crust destroying earthquakes?

Once again, doomsday theorists are wrong. Bring me the head of Patrick Geryl, Robert Bast and every doomsday fearmonger so we can ridicule them! Or at least let me laugh at their faces.

And while we're at it, move the 2012 film to the disaster/comedy genre, and bring us the heads of the producers who made that film.

I live in a frequent EQ area, most of them we can't feel but it would have been slightly amusing to have a 4.0 (one that you can slightly feel but doesn't shake enough to cause damage) today. Oh well!

Well, today has come & gone for the most part without any ill effects. That can only mean one thing: The people who thought that the Mayans predicted the end of the world to be at this exact date are nothing more than paranoid schizophrenics.

The Mayans have died off before they could come up with another calender, so we can't say for sure what they had in mind past that era. But one thing is for sure. Humanity cannot predict the world's ending, as it's impossible.

Thus, my bottom line is, the end of a calender from an ancient civilization =/= the end of the world for all of mankind. With that, another apocalypse conspiracy theory bites the dust.

& for those who committed suicide today because you believed in this actually happening, this is my parting gift for you in the afterlife, as you all have made a fatal mistake, literally.

Now, mind locking this thread up, please? I've had more than enough of this nonsense, & I'm very sure everyone else did too.

As much as I'm confused by Blade_of_darkness' rather hasty diagnosis of schizophrenia for anyone who believed that the world would end, I agree that now is as good a time as any to bring this thread to a close. Congratulations to everyone who survived, and a special thanks to everyone who took the initiative to explain to us all that the world did, in fact, not end! Your assistance was greatly appreciated by anyone who was uncertain of whether they were alive or not, and indeed, whether the ending of the Mayan calendar did in fact signal the end of all existence! I'll be sure to find you for assistance during my confusion come the next post-apocolyptic PokéCommunity browsing session I have! And with that,
