The same people who think the world will end thought that:
The year 2000 was the end.
9/11 was a conspiracy
Haileys comet is the end of the earth
Obama is apart of Al Quieda.
Obama is APART from Al Quieda. What he is A PART of is Al Queda. The only reason you dont know that Y2K was the end in a way is that YOU did not get raptured. 9/11 was the start of the end times, Obama is smewhere in the middle, and 2012 will be the end, when Haleys comet hits due to women showing too much titty. Not that I care, I am throwing darts with Hendrix and sipping a margarita right now.
Ok what the craziest **** you've heard about 2012??
I've heard a lot of crazy **** about 2012, but most of it comes from crazy people. I myself don't plan on the world ending, or really anything happening for that matter, but some people out there have a hard on for this ****.
If you find some of the better videos out there you'll get all the info you want. I didnt see the movie, probably wont either unless the gf puts it on netflix.
I don't buy into the whole 2012 thing either, BUT...it does happen to be the 100 year birthday of the original leader from North Korean so there is some big todo planned, and the way that country is headed down the crapper with food shortages, no succession planning, and slowly growing dissent most regional experts expect something bad/significant to happen within the next two years. One of those "something bad" scenarios include the current nut job leader using nukes.
The cynic in me wants something to happen, just to add a little spice to life, but I don't think anything will happen. Just like Y2K, 2012 will come, as will 2013, and life will continue as usual. Is it a hell of a coincidence that so much stuff is focused around late 2012, hell yeah it is, but I don't think it's anything pointing to the end. And technically, isn't 2012 supposed to be the BEGINNING of the end, not the end itself?
God I love big planes ^ (someone is going to quote this with dick in place of planes, I call you on it)
I also don't understand what's up with the whole "PLANETS WILL BE ALIGNED!" deal. They aren't even close, won't ever be close, and never will form a straight line. If they ever were, whoop-de-doo. Do you know the mass of the goddamn sun? There isn't going to be some gravity misnomer happening anytime soon. Also, Mercury orbits the sun in 88 days... whatever aligning that supposedly is going to happen will last for about 15 minutes (that is a rough educated guess, not sure how to calculate). Where's ZXTEX?
Science is on the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to superstition and Hollywood.
