    What people fail to mention is that on 24 February 1582 the Gregorian calendar was adopted introducing the Leap Year. So if you work out the date going backwards taking into account the leap years, technically the world should of "ended" in August!

    I'm going to go with All of the Above.

    Oh and by Flood, I refer to the creatures from Halo.

    *yes I am perfectly aware that the world is not actually going to end, this is all in good fun, take your buzzkill reality elsewhere
    It's going to be everything at once, including Other.

    You younger folk may not know of Other, but I sure do. It was back some thirty thousand years ago, in a time much like this one. Our sages predicted something very evil was about to rear it's ugly face. It was only two weeks later that Other showed up, his very arrival killing most of the planets population. We fought long and hard against him, but we were no match. Eventually, the population reached critical levels, and the only thing the sages could do to save the planet was to sacrifice themselves to seal him away.

    Many a good people died to that beast, including magic itself. I was one of the survivors, but most of the rest died off over the years. Abraham Lincoln, Nikola Tesla, Karl Marx, and quite a few other people throughout history were some of my fellow survivors. The few others remaining? Well, I don't think they'd take to kindly to me telling the world about them.

    The 21st of December is going to be the 30,001 year of the seal, and when it breaks. The Reapers, zombies, the Flood, and demons themselves, all shall be unleashed from Other's nightmarish womb. We don't have the technology or magic we had back then, and we sure don't have the tenacity. Dark days are coming, my friends. I suggest you all batten down the hatches while you still can. Maybe my associates will find the Fountain of Celestial Magic in time, but I sure wouldn't hold your breath.

    I hope if the world ends, it will be a zombie apocalypse, so I can fight zombies.

    Nobody ever said anything about that being the beginning of the end or the end of the end

    August 6 – Curiosity, the Mars Science Laboratory mission's rover, successfully lands on Mars

    ^The beginning of the end

    All of them and more! At same time! Zombie reapers throwing nuclear asteroids while there's diseases outbreaks and the universe ruptures with bees pouring out of the cracks. Android bees.

    Disappointed to not have seen the option "I don't think it will be the end of the world" or something of that sort.

    That's what other is for. And he does say it's all just for fun.

    I went for all of the above. If the world is going to end, let's have it end properly.

    I'm glad all of the above includes other. So many possibilities.
    Zombies doing Gangnam Style. Reapers doing Gangnam Style. Asteroids hitting us to the tune of Gangnam Style. Possibilities are endless!

    are you SURE about that?
    Ok so you are saying we should either remove his vid from youtube, or watch it so many times it hits 1,000,000,000 views before the 21st? ok but can i keep it muted...
    ^^Everything said above is purely the opinion of the person who posted it. Nothing said is to be taken as fact unless otherwise stated, and even then only taken into consideration as fact, and not an actual fact, as it could be wrong or in other ways misinformed.

    What if the Mayans foresaw Santa Claus with lung cancer?

    That means we can't get our Christmas presents and that would truly be the end of the earth.

    Which would be ironic because those accusations WOULDN'T be false if they did come back as zombies on the 21st.

    Idk about end of the world but end of the world as we know it: shift in magnetic polls would somehow cause a massive EMP killing all electronics. This claim has absolutely zero scientific backing.

    A couple of things.


    1st: the Mayan calendar was translated in 1900 and sinks up nicely with the modern calendar.
    2nd: Everyone is in an uproar over the Mayan Long count calender.
    Table of Long Count units
    Days Long Count period Long Count unit Approximate Solar Years
    1 n/a 1 K'in n/a
    20 20 K'in 1 Winal n/a
    360 18 Winal 1 Tun 1
    7,200 20 Tun 1 K'atun 20
    144,000 20 K'atun 1 B'ak'tun 394
    2,880,000 20 B'ak'tun 1 Piktun 7,885
    57,600,000 20 Piktun 1 Kalabtun 157,704
    1,152,000,000 20 Kalabtun 1 K'inchiltun 3,154,071
    23,040,000,000 20 K'inchiltun 1 Alautun 63,081,429
    Today's Mayan date:Alautun 1, K'inchiltun 1, Kalabtun 1, Piktun 1, baktun 12, katun 19, tun 19, uinal 16, kin 19
    The calendar doesn't run out for 63,073,544 years.

    3erd this is a silly thread, and I want to see the Reaper invasion.
