Can we please refrain from any Mayan calendar jokes until after December 21st has come and gone, so that we don't jinx things. I'll even make a deal: if nothing has happened by December 23rd, 12:00 pm, I'll make wisecracks with you all. But for now, I see this moment as a time of somber self-reflection.

I think now is a time to reflect on our selves, and to meditate on how we can improve ourselves and attain a greater peace, even if the next several hours were to be our last, and to think of reasons why God might find our civilization worthy to continue to advance unabated.
Is this a joke?

Re: Mayan Apocalypse

Just a little over an hour to go. I'm going to party like it's 1999. Better yet, I'm going to party like it's 1979. I was 18 and New Wave was hot. Or I'll just join Jimmy Buffett.



Then I'm going to sit down and have a quiet cup of tea.

Oh, wait. I found this.

No apocalypse today.

What the Hell, I'm still going to party like it's 1979. And have a cup of tea.

In a world where a disturbingly large number of people think the Twin Towers were brought down by controlled demolition and the 9/11 planes were all under remote control and never hijacked nothing surprises me anymore.

The Mayan Calendar stuff is simple child's play compared to some of the complete insanity that's seriously studied and believed in our collective culture.

In latest news, the End of the World has been delayed by 4bn or so years.

Morons. And, yes, I expect a few killing sprees and suicides from such morons. Let's hope not, but...

Count me in as one of those 'crazed' 9/11 nuts!

Today I really thought that aliens would be landing on Earth given the supposed connections between the Mayans and space aliens. Seriously this major cycle happening... It would have been so awesome if aliens were to come down...

Oh well...

My holiday user name really should have been Mayan Apocalypse.

Re: Mayan Apocalypse

What is the "end of the world" supposed to look like anyway? I mean...what were we really expecting to happen? Zombies? The Earth to explode? A huge asteroid? Maybe the Apocalypse did happen, but it's much more subtle that we were expecting. Maybe it will take a while for us to notice the effects.
