This whole end of times nonsense is fascinating to me. It's like on some things society completely disregards logic, and the media gets people to buy into this junk. The way we tell time differs from the way Mayans did not to mention we have daylight savings time, leap year and other man made ways to tell time that did not exist when this calendar was created.

Did you know that the Mayan calender does not actually state that the 21st of December is going to be the end of the world? It actually states that it will be a time of change, and that it's when the Star People will return.
Ancient Aliens ftw...

Apparently, the Maya state in their written history that people came from the stars and made them into a slave race. The Anunaki - the aliens that came - needed gold for their planet, and Earth was apparently rich in it, so they made the Maya to mine for gold. The Maya wrote in their calendar that the Star People (aliens; maybe even the Anunaki themselves) would return on the date that the calender ends, which happens to be 12/21/2012.
Whether it's accurate or not, we have yet to find out.
Personally, I think that no one actually believes the world will end. The whole mindset is, "Ugh, I can't believe all these idiots believe in this," when there really aren't that many people who do.

oh i still see reports. it's stupidly set up. we have a forum where all the reports go which is great because then you can look while youre online, but then you also get an email for every report in your sections (or for smods/admins, every section where there are no assigned mods). which clogs up your inbox pretty fast if you mod a section like gpd or b2w2.
Where I live is full of huge *** trucks. And they are all shiny and clean, with absolutely nothing in the back. Seriously why would you buy a pick-up truck if you aren't going to use it for it's intended purpose ?
I prefer small cars myself. They are much more effiecent fuel and space wise and handle really smoothly when you're driving. Hippie vans are pretty sweet too, though I wouldn't want to be behind the drivers seat of one.
