21 12 2012

Ok, so the 21st of Dec 2012 is on its way and getting closer and closer.. The Mayan calender supposedly predicts the end of the world...
The film that was released a few years back showed governments knowing about it and keeping it hush hush while building super arks to save themselves and anyone they thought was important while letting the rest of the population rot..
So.. do you think anything will happen? Have you noticed any unusual financial irregularities anywhere, big secret projects that vanish from google earth.. ?
I personally don't really know what to think of it. back in 2000 the end of the world was supposed to happen around the time of an eclipse.. Nostrodamus (I know thats spelt wrong) had predicted it centuries ago and nothing happened. Then there was some american religious bloke who had his own radio station who kept preaching the end of the world was coming two or three times and that failed to materialise.. So.. any thought guys?
That was the only film thats ever made me feel physically sick..

So why is 21 12 important?  I would have thought  that it more likely to happen on 20 12 2012  Cheesy

Governments are using this date as the Plan B to solve the long term national debt problem.

Seems the Russians are having to reassure a large number of the population that the world will not end on this date.
Amazing what people are willing to believe and not all are simple minded folk. I don't remember the details but a group of people committed suicide in Switzerland a few years ago as they believed it would take them to a Comet that was passing the earth on a particular date.
Now't as daft as folk (Yorkshire saying)

I'm not surprised. The film was one of the most worrying and thought provoking I've ever seen. It made me feel sick in the cinema and it made me feel sick watching it on DVD at work on the night shift. My colleague who thought I was talking tripe watched it himself and nearly browned his trousers and the started telling other colleagues about it Grin. I've even seen a couple of people write to deidre at the sun because this film has scared them so much.

I wonder if we'll see a reduction in Advent calendar sales this year.

Re: 21 12 2012

I expect the Mayans were referring to their own civilisation with that calendar entry.
They were wildly inaccurate.
