    Hi fellow TF fans!

    I know I haven't posted on here as much in the past couple of years as I did when I first joined. However, after being a member here for a good long time, I'm hoping I've earned your guys' trust. Especially since I need your guys' help with something, please.

    You see, back in August I entered a contest, the "Search for the Leader of the Post-2012 World." While I knew that it was all just a part of the online virital marketing for that stupid 2012 movie, it seemed like a heck of a lot of fun, so I entered. At the end of the first phase, I came up with a score of 14,640 from taking all of the required tests.

    On Sept. 9th, after several weeks of tests, I got an email that told me that I was a finalist, and I couldn't help but jump up in joy and excitement. :D  The Sponsor then sent me a Sony HD Webbie Camera as a part of the finalist prize pack over a week later, and they still owe me an 80 GB Playstation 3.:rolleyes2  So from there on, I readied and submitted the campaign materials during the second phase, and now here is the third and final stage.

    So for the past month, I've been trying to gather as much support as possible. Only now have I managed to make the time to tell you guys here about. I really hope I win this competition, because the grandprize is an all-expense paid trip to Cancun, Mexico to see the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza! 8) Since the Maya are my favorite ancient civ, I'd feel incredible fortunate to visit one of their ancient cities.

    The final phase ends on Nov. 3rd, so I really need to pick up the pace to gather support. So if you guys are willing, will you guys please help me out? You can go here to vote for me: The IHC: The Institute for Human Continuity - Peter S

    Regardless of however this turns out, I'll be sure to keep you all posted as things develope. ;)  Especially since I need to post on here more often anyway.



    Sincerely, AG


    P.S.
    Even though this topic mentions the 2012 Phenomenon, let's please try to keep this thread civil, and heed the forum rules. Which means no discussing religion and/or politics.

    P.P.S. I really hope this doesn't count as politics, since it's only a contest and nothing more.

    I'd vote, but the thing doesn't appear to accept my non-U.S. zip code. :(

    I tried but it would not accept my postal code either. I guess only Americans are going to survive since no one but them may vote.

    I need to know more information before I pick a candidate to rule the world.

    1) What is your Zombie defense plan

    2) When you get hungry due to lack of food in a post apocalyptic world what would you see me as?
    a. A giant Steak
    b. A giant KFC wing?

    3) Would you ever go power crazy and make us build a pyramid in honor of your might?

    4) If aliens were to attack would you have enough of the Flu virus to kill them?

    Sorry I haven't gotten back to this thread until now! *slaps own forehead* I hate it when things slip my mind.:banghead: 

    Anyway, thank you all so much for supporting me! I knew I could trust you guys!

    As a reminder, the election ends on Nov. 3rd. However, I forgot to mention that you can vote more than once. One vote per email address per day until Nov 3rd, to be precise. So feel free to vote again if you'd all like. :) 

    I'm aware of that issue you guys, and I find that to be complete bullcrap!:mad  If there's ever another election like this, I will make sure that it will be open to people of all countries. For I guarantee that Americans will not be the only ones to survive. We need variety in culture, don't we?

    Absolutely, dude!

    It's okay, Kickback. It's hard to choose with so many interesting candidates.

    Just so you know, I have a friend who thinks that one of the candidates looks like the Antichrist.:p 

    1) I plan to start a program to recruit and train a Zombie-Killin' Task Force! But I'll need to raise fundings for that, of course.:redface2: 

    2) A lunch meat sandwich, minus the bread.

    3) Only if it's a Mayan styled pyramid, otherwise no.

    4) I'll have a special H1N1 vial just for them. They won't even know what'll hit'em.:ev: 


    With all that said, "Happy Halloween" from your potential Post-2012 Leader!

    Sorry for the double post, but I'd just like to update that today is the last day of the contest. Voting closes at 3pm Pacific Time, so if there's anyone who hasn't voted yet, or would like to vote again, you have less than four hours to do so.

    Together, we can nail this.;)

    I would, but it's a conflict of interest. I would be the best leader after the apocalypse.
