    Armageddon

    A friend reminded me that the end of the world is coming up in a couple weeks. Man, would my face be red if I forgot to show up!

    What are your end of the world plans?

    I'll be working the first half of the day, then driving up to Dallas to spend Xmas with my family.

    You fools. The end of the world is not predicted by the heathen mayans or the heathen christian rapture. Ragnarok will be the end of this world. Only Loki knows the time!

    Lament the fact my 18th is the day after. Talk about lucky timing.

    On the plus side though, I don't have to do my coursework then.

    Did people not get the memo about the 12-21-12 myth? It's not real.

    "The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 -- hence the predicted doomsday date of Dec. 21, 2012," NASA said.
    But just as your desk calendar ends on Dec. 31 and world keeps going on, the same goes for the Mayan calendar, NASA explained. Just before you run out of pages doesn’t mean life as we know it will cease to exist.
    The science experts also dispel a few other online rumors associated with the end of 2012. The planets are not going to align, there is no predicted blackout for this December and the Earth’s rotation isn’t going to change directions.
    "For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, where is the science? Where is the evidence? There is none, and for all the fictional assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, we cannot change that simple fact. There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012," NASA said.

    No one seems to think about it. It's not true. The Mayans don't even have an end-of-the-world mythology.

    But if the world was ending I'd just quit my job and snuggle up with my man till we died a fiery death.

    You realize only crazy people think it's actually gonna be the End, the rest of us have heard about it and are going to A) Talk about it happening in a facetious manner, B) Ignore it completely, C) Use it as an excuse to party, D) Any combination of those three.

    And you absolutely cannot trust anything Loki says. He would probably tell you the wrong date just to mess with you, but he knows you know he is messing with you, so he would tell you the right date to reverse screw with you, but he knows you could think of that so he would tell you the wrong date...

    OT: I'm gonna be workin' because half the place has requested it off or will call in sick (see previous reason #C).
    Call to arms, the trumpets sound
    Hand puppets storm the base, flags up now cannons rage
    All clowns head for the rear, slingshots fire to the air
    Toy horses start the charge, Robot chessmen standing guard
    Crossfire to the marionettes, Slip into the edge of death...

    Cash in on all those "End of the world" insurances I sold, I'm going to be rich!
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    Yes, we know. It's still fun to make fun of or to think about.

    I plan on having an early Festivus feast so that we can have an airing of grievances before the world ends. It's just good to get these things off your chest, you know? Before we all die.

    I've tried to make bets with a lot of people over the years about this, not a single one had the balls to put their money where their mouth is.

    Making a bet on something on this, whether it's true or not, seems rather stupid, atleast if you really want to make money, if it's just for the fun, sure, I guess it's fine. xD
