Same time here.
So, how do you guys think it'll end?
I don't really care how it does, but if it actually happens, I'm opening my Christmas gifts as fast as possible. XP

4. long-ish post but a goodie:

The Mayans started a 'Long Count" from their chosen date that they thought was the beggining of the world 0.0.0.0.0 which now corresponds to 31 August 3114 BC.

the 0.0.0.0.0 is a counting system for each 0 is a slot that will roll over but unlike ours it goes from 0-19 instead of 0-9.
e.g 0.0.0.0.1 = 1 day, 0.0.0.1.0 = 20 days, 0.0.1.0.0 = 360 days (1 year approx), 0.1.0.0.0 = 7200 days (20 years approx) and finally 1.0.0.0.0 = 400 years approx (144,000 days).

The end of the world (according to this, today, since the myth comes from the mayans) will happen when the date rolls over to a certain number... want to know...

13.0.0.0.0

yep, it's the 13 is unlucky superstition all over again!!!

info gathered from the book; Science is Golden by Dr Karl Kruszulnicki
I got the book about 2 years back.

Yes, I'm posting from the underworld to inform you that it was quite a horrible death for me, with zombies and all sorts of mutants invading our home with laser-shooting eyes and blades on their arms. Prepare yourselves.

It wasn't the mobile fortress scenario I was hoping for, but anyway.

You know, I should shut off all the power in my school tomorrow just to scare the crap out of everyone.

Pull the fire alarm first.

15. Oh snap, we're getting gray clouds where I am. Arizona only has gray clouds when we get that rare rain. It's gotta be the end of the world.

And it's not yet 5:30 PM. Man, these apocalyptic clouds move fast.

I should probably turn on the news for the heck of it while I eat my pizza.

I can prove I'm not a zombie. Antidisestablishmentarianism. There. No zombie would spell that correctly!

We treat it as though the world is ending most of the time. But as this is now the actual end of the world, we're better prepared for it.

As long as there's no thunder and lightning, I should be able to make it.

25. You know, when it said 'end of the world', it didn't specifically state that we would all die... Maybe Christmas was cancelled. Now that would be end of the world!
