    Whose 21st? ... by the time Americans roll into it, Australians and Kiwis have wandered off onto the 22nd... ;-). Unless it's a phenomenon that sweeps around the world following the light of the sun, like a monster windscreen wiper... which seems just a little _too_ convenient...

    "End of the world" at a particular time doesn't really work any more on a worldwide forum... (^_^)h.

    I think it's more of the craziness of it all. So much as been devoted to it and even the Mayan scholars are saying nope it's just the end of this set not the end of the Mayan calendar it rolls over and starts again :cheese:

    To be fair people go through the end of the world phase a few times a generation. A new prophecy will be found or the dates will shift accordingly so we can do this again in 2019.

    My calendar got destroyed in the hurricane, so I got a new one starting 1/1/2013. Therefore the world hasn't even started yet.

    As noted by NASA if it was a celestal object it would be visable to the naked eye during the daytime by now. We can rule that one out. So prep for Earthquakes, Valcano's, Tidalwaves and other earthly stuff...

    I vote for the cookie.
    Of course, maybe the Maya Calender was really predicting the end of Twinkies and Hoho's from hostess. It was very close, if so..

    There's still the possibility of a truly massive solar flare. Which may or may not end the world, but if it took out the geosynchronous satellites could well end the world as we know it. :-P

    you are only safe on the mountain in france, where we meet our alien family and friends.
    Finally, I'm seeing my grandmother after 40 years. :coolsmile:

    I was watching the France 24 debate earlier and they were discussing this latest global lunacy. But the really hilarious thing was that they showed a clip of some of the people who have gone to that village in France to wait for a spaceship to come out of the mountain and save them from the world's end. And one group they showed were all wearing tin-foil hats!!!!. I couldn't stop laughing. I know we all joke about tin-foil hats on the net, but these nutters actually had them on! Unbelievable!

    Just goes to show, PT Barnum knew more than most philosphers. There's a sucker born every minute.

    They didn't actually say why they were wearing the hats, but I suspect it's because of the mountain. It's supposedly an 'inverse mountain' - a geological freak which has its roots in the air and its tip underground. It also has strong magnetic properties which they believe will defend them from the upcoming doom.

    Since I live 6,000ft up a mountain, I'm hoping mine is magnetic too. I need to go and finish my latest hat now. It's triple-strength with ear-muffs!

    Yeah, that worries me to. But I'll tell them they have to journey back to their homes. I'm not the Cool Dude they are looking for.

    I was editing my last post as you posted (must have been alien mind rays causing it) but figured I should post this information here too... I wouldn't want you crafting your hat without it providing the proper safety and defense for you.
