    I don't believe it'll end either, but if it does that'd really suck :c.. There's so many things I want to do in life!

    Yeah, I would never be able to have Christmas again... or even experience more future twists and turns to PC.

    And yeah, I do agree with you that it's all just a big joke.

    I can't even stress enough how badly this whole 21/12/12 doomsday has been theorised. I must've heard at least 15 different stories.

    The 21st is my mother's birthday and the last day of classes for me before Winter Break.

    Fun fun fun.

    It's not going to end. It's not even what the Mayans "predicted".

    It is kinda like the Mayan-equivalent of when you get a new calendar in January. That current cycle is over, a new one starts. Just like it has many times over

    Well, apparently the Mayans predicted it. A load of BS if you ask me...

    Recently, theres been so many stories to do with Illuminati, Nibiru, Nuclear Wars and whatever else, it's so unbelievable now I actually pity the people who have sold up just because they think we're going to die.

    Y2K, 6/6/6 and last year anyone? We've been dying for years. 21/12/12 is fear-mongering at its best...

    Hey, this thread is still alive. Awesome.

    I think the apocalypse thing is complete BS. No way the Mayans were that sure, no offense meant to them.

    I think 'the Mayans couldn't have been sure' is just scratching the surface of why the whole thing is pretty ludicrous. Too bad this ~end of the world~ falls on the day I get out for break, though - was looking forward to it!

    Speaking of which, I really am excited since I'm taking a road trip with the fam over to Los Angeles. Still not sure what we're to do there. I need to do some research on popular attractions, if any, that are located near there.

      What I don't understand is why people think they stopped on this date because they wanted to. Maybe they just ran out of time? I mean, seriously, chances are that the Spaniards rushed in, and they had just happened to have December 21st marked down.

      Everything else- not happening. NASA has stated that if Nibiru existed (Begin to rant, conspiracy theorists) we would be able to see it by now in the sky- or feel it's effects already, such as the gravity of it. Nuclear wars (yes, I have heard of that one too) can't destroy the world in one day just because we're six days away and tension would be huge at this point. Not to mention the fact that there are people who already have bomb shelters made- they won't die. Remember that day a year or two ago, when I believe May 21st was Judgement Day and people had signs hung up all over the place? And that day passed and nothing big happened? Exactly. And-

      Lemme stop right there. Like Bloodex said, this apocalypse thing is BS.

      Absolutely correct there Chris.

      When I first heard about this, I knew it was totally not real. We will still live another day.

      This whole apocalypse thing is BS!

        When I noticed I was automatically subscribed to this thread... I was afraid for my inbox.

        Was a prophet really needed to know that it was BS? I kinda figured that out myself.

          What is even more amusing is that there's actually sufficient amount of inquiries by the American public to NASA about the Mayan doomsday... According to the news, NASA has made some documentary video ready for release on the 22nd about the Mayan doomsday and so on.

            Probably to rub it in people's face who believe it will happen.

                To be fair, if you can count up to 9, that's pretty impressive for a 1-year-old.
