Meanwhile, over on www.warrenellis.com...

"Searches for the term “end of the world” on Jamais Cascio’s OPEN THE FUTURE have gone up eightfold in the last couple of months."

And I feel fine...

I have a friend that can sing that whole song at speed without missing a word. Of course, being on key is slightly harder for him, but it's still fairly impressive.

Everyone knows that the End of the World won't happen till 2012 anyway, so what's the hubub?  Tongue

Is it really wise to dwell on such things like when the apocalypse might occur? Best to concern yourself with things that you can change, rather than what you can't change.  Cool

Considering that the Mayan calendar had already ended several times before they made one that ran 'all the way' to 2012, I have my doubts about the end of the world - they believed in a world that was destroyed and renewed in such a way as to make no never mind....

Auld, it was a joke. I don't honestly believe that since the Mayan calandar is ending the world will too. Though a couple friends of mine decided that if they're still going out they're getting married the day the world's supposed to end, just for kicks.

The Mayan calender is inaccurate anyway. The date was pushed back by several hours for every live sacrifice made. And they made a LOT of sacrifices.

Sorry, I have met too many, ummm, idiots is the only good term for it, who really do believe in it. Millennial doom mongering with a new age twist. They quite spoiled my sense of humor about it.  Undecided

I find such nonsense useful for RPGs though, so I really should not complain.

I am no doom monger. Honestly, there's no point in it. If the world ends, nobody will notice, because we'll all be dead. So why bother worrying?

Y'know, I've lived through Y2K, numerous All Blacks World Cup losses and any number of other possible end of the world predictions. I'm pretty sure I'll live to see 2013.

That said, I have always wanted to go to Central America. Maybe some additional sacrifices might help, y'know, just in case...

No, but I performed enough disections in high school and uni to be able to make them. No, where did I put that feathered head-dress...?

No, my fault - my apology did not sound like one I guess. I had just had a discussion with one of the people who really do believe in it a day or so before posting. SO I was primed. Sorry about that.

Now Armageddon, there's something to enjoy.... How many battles have already taken place there?
