Just so we know everyone is still alive, feel free to post about how anticlimactic your "end of world" experience was. (feel free to ridicule those who believed the end was nigh)


So far, I've walked to my local service station and bought cigarettes. Still Alive.

You have to remember, on this side of the world is where the Mayan calendar was created, so it goes by our time, not the rest of the worlds. We are still on the 20th, so Doomsday(LOL) hasn't officially happened yet. LMAO!

OK. You got me. Can't we just pretend? Actually, consider this topic your last will and testament in case the end times to occur. *snickers*

Also don't forget that it could happen at any point during the 24 hour period of December 21st. Not the instant the clock turns midnight and the 21st starts.

That is why we all need to check in at this topic. If you see any apocalyptic-like events, report here first. We must be vigilant.

Winter solstice is only time that matters, since thats when their calendars ran. Doesn't happen until 11:12 AM UTC tomorrow

Doesn't matter. Its timed based on the Winter Solstice, which doesn't take into account any other calendar inventions or time changes.

Question: What do you predict will be the most common excuse for the world failing to end?

Date shifting: "Oh, we said 21st of Dec 2012? We meant 2021. You can see how someone could confuse that"

Spiritual apocalyspe: " well, no one said it was going to be the end of the world, per se, we meant a spiritual awakening!"

Obfuscation: "These things are complex, we need more time to understand them. Ancient cultures left many clues *blah blah blah*"

Less then 12 hours till midnight. East coast time would be about 3am your time.

Well the obvious conclusion would be: "Oh, well it is actually set for 12-12-2112." or "12-21-2112."
