Re: Mayan Apocalypse

I'm not sure what happened. It's meant to be a facebook or twitter post of GLaDOS (of Portal fame) posting "Still Alive."

But it wasn't actually Facebook, just a link to a screenshot from Facebook that was up on another non-Faccebook site.

EDIT: Ah. it's from Tickled. They don't allow hotlinking. Hang on, I'll save it to my Photobucket...



There we go.

What are your thoughts on it? Do you agree with the author's premise? If so, why?

Re: Mayan Apocalypse

Just curious, do the aztecs or incans have an apocalypse date we should be concerned about. The last one was "so" anticlimatic.

Re: Mayan Apocalypse

Prince predicted 1999 and we all saw how that went.

If we can't trust our funky entertainers from suburban Minnesota then all hope for accuracy is lost.

We can still party like it's 1999. I'll get my VHS copies of Friends and Seinfeld that I taped over the air, and then we can listen to my Del Amitri and Sixpence None the Richer CDs.

Re: Mayan Apocalypse

And another Matthew McConaughey relationship comedy will get made at some point in the near future. That's always a reason to hope for a quick death for the human race.
