The End Is Near! Are YOU Ready? [Mayan Calendar]
« on: December 02, 2012, 11:56:26 AM »
LOL!  Just noticed we've less than 3 weeks to go.

If we took a minute and thought.....where would I want to be?  What would I want to be doing?

Me?  Buying 'beachfront' property in Iowa, of course.     

Anyone else?    :seeya:

I don't think I'd want to be anywhere different than where I am most days: with my wife doing the things we do each day, sharing intimacy.  It's nice to be at a point in life where one knows what one likes and what one doesn't like (as well as what one must avoid because one likes it TOO much).   To be at that point in life and to share it with someone who is totally in tune with me is a real blessing.

ROFL!   That IS a dilemma, isn't it?  :shrug:

Just don't make fruitcakes.   We don't want future humans to find them.

The Mayans weren't very good at foreseeing their own demise, so why believe them now that they have been extinct for centuries??

When you have that one person in your life that is the real blessing, enjoy every minute for you don't know when it will be the last.  There is a lot of people we can live with,but only one you can't live without and that is when you know you found your true soul mate.

I'm planning on catching an international flight going West. I'm thinking, if I can time the international date line just right, I may be able to skip the 21st altogether. I'll go directly from 20th to the 22nd.

Me and the other people on the plane will then have to repopulate the Earth...i think?

Damn...now that is the ultimate plan.  And considering where the dateline is, there are many paradise-like islands with airstrips available to choose as a South Pacific landing spot!

Mayan apocalypse: panic spreads as December 21 nears




Ahead of December 21, which marks the conclusion of the 5,125-year "Long Count" Mayan calendar, panic buying of candles and essentials has been reported in China and Russia, along with an explosion in sales of survival shelters in America. In France believers were preparing to converge on a mountain where they believe aliens will rescue them.

The precise manner of Armageddon remains vague, ranging from a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, a disastrous crash with a comet, or the annihilation of civilisation by a giant solar storm.

In America Ron Hubbard, a manufacturer of hi-tech underground survival shelters, has seen his business explode.

"We've gone from one a month to one a day," he said. "I don't have an opinion on the Mayan calendar but, when astrophysicists come to me, buy my shelters and tell me to be prepared for solar flares, radiation, EMPs (electromagnetic pulses) ... I'm going underground on the 19th and coming out on the 23rd. It's just in case anybody's right."

In the French Pyrenees the mayor of Bugarach, population 179, has attempted to prevent pandemonium by banning UFO watchers and light aircraft from the flat topped mount Pic de Bugarach.
