My plans for tomorrow are simple: take the kids to school, go to the office, work on accounting and billing.  What an awful thing for an attorney to do!  Oh, and I have to write my paralegal a paycheck!  I don't understand why she won't work for free.  I'm a joy to work for!

The sound of static slowly crackles and pops over the airwaves...
The sound of static slowly crackles and pops over the airwaves a voice seems to come through the hissing....
The sound of static slowly crackles and pops over the airwaves a voice seems to come through the hissing....
"Moraline to Elliquiy, do you read me, Elliquiy? This is radio free Canada, coming at you from the East Coast..." The transmission is interrupted with the sound of further crackling and squealing.. a long hiss sounds just before the voice returns.

"Elliquiy, I come to you from deep underground in my bunker at the northern end of the Appalachian mountain chain. Across the border in what was once known as New Brunswick, Canada.  I have supplies, fresh water, dried and canned food goods as well as a stock pile of ammunition and guns. Bring your families and hurry. Dammit, when this world ends we won't go without a fight!"

I love this.  O8)

Here's a fun game: how many (newsworthy) anticipated apocalypses or proclaimed raptures have you lived through? This page, weighted toward recent claims, is a good place to start. According to what's there, my count is 75 or 76 or thereabouts. (We've already lived through two apocalypses this year, believe it or not.) Lots of them are just people boringly counting biblical generations until the Rapture or trying to predict nuclear war or economic collapse or reading ridiculous shit into astronomical alignments, but for my money the most creative apocalyptic shit-disturbing technique was still the Y2K scare. Amazing how much they were able to get some people worked up about that.

The irony about tomorrow's entry in the apocalypse sweepstakes is that the Mayans didn't predict any such thing. I wonder what the next big hype will be?

Presumably, any 'doomsday event' within your lifespan is fair game.

Great pic, Moraline! - and I can't help thinking of the UK actor (forgot his name, but I think he was in Dr Who at some time) who singled out one of the worst lines he had ever had to speak. Confronting a squad of aliens and waving some kind of primitive ray pistol, he stood firm:

"Take me to your leader or I'll kill him with this gun!"

I'm glad to see someone is talking about this.

My reason?  Well, so far every potential shtf scenario I've experienced has garnered a lot of conversation, but I've not heard anybody talk about this... and it's the ones you're not worried about that always bite you in the ass... so thanks to you guys, I now know there's not as much to worry about as there was before I noticed this thread.  Because yeah, I think there's really something to this.

Oh, and I didn't take time to read them all, but for those earlier posts that "rolling apocalypse" that started at GMT ... no, I think the timing would be based on what time zone the Mayans were in.

Clearly the apocalypse won't occur until it's the 21st throughout all of America. It's the greatest nation and therefore deserves the honor of being destroyed by zombie mayans first :P

"It's interesting that the people who are complaining about how it's all 'American-centric' seem to be ignoring that there are a lot of other countries that share those time zones... For instance, as was pointed out earlier, the one(s) that the Mayans lived in..."

From what I hear Jesus Christ was an American. If we are to believe all the religious guff that is sprouted.

Time zones we not invented by God but by humans. So its all academic anyway

Best line I've heard about this whole clusterfuck was in an article linked further up: 'If Mayans were any good at predicting the future, there would still be Mayans.' :D

The rest of us can just start drunk-singing 'It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I'm Feeling Fine)' at the top of our voices at midnight, just to annoy the neighbours. :D
