    That's right, if you believe in all this 2012 crap, we've got two years left till something BIG happens.

    I don't necessarily believe in 2012, but somethings up with what's going on.
    Look at all the crap that's going on in the world with hurricanes, earthquakes, riots, and what not. Ever noticed how much faster time is going these days? It's already March 2011! And I am no more busy these days then last year. So why is time going faster?

    What do you think? Now, not trying to start any debates on 2012 and the Mayans Calendar and what not. I just wanna know what you see and feel in today's world. Have you noticed time going faster and faster?

    I stopped believing in all this end of the world crap after I bought into the whole Y2K thing.

    2012 will happen, you have been warned.


    *That doesn't mean it's the end of the world, just that it is what comes after 2011 and before 2013. :tongue:

    That's kind of like buildings that don't have a 13th floor. Sorry, but that floor numbered 14? Then that's the 13th floor.

    Time is going faster because you're getting older. This happens to everyone.

    And I should add that if something big/bad does happen at the end of 2012, it will likely be because of self-fulfilling prophecy. So many people have this stupid date in their minds that their collective will might actually cause something. Who knows?

    Time seems to speed up as you grow older because every year you are alive accounts for a lesser percentage of your total life experience. For example when you are ten yrs old one year = 10% of your total experience, if you make it to one hundred years that drops to 1%.

    As far as the "look at all this stuff that is happening"...that stuff has always been happening, but with the global news networks, the internet and the speed with which information travels, you hear/see about a LOT more of it than you used to. This planet(and the universe for that matter) has always been a seething mass of chaos and it always will.

    Don't worry about things you can't control. If an asteroid is gonna hit, or a solar flare is gonna nuke the power grid, there isn't a damn thing you can do about it.

    Hell, even the Mayans that are still around say that 2012 is a load of bs.

    And after 2012 comes by and nothing happens, they'll claim something big will happen on another specific date.

    The 13th Floor was a kick-ass movie! Vincent D'onofrio was awesome in it!

    And yea, I remember being a kid how long and slow a day was.

    To everyone that believes the world's ending in 2012, feel free to mail me your toys for safe keeping since you wont be needing them! Just dont ask for them back in 2013.

    Seriously, the world was supposed to have ended 10 times in my lifetime so far, conspiracy nuts love to latch onto any obscure prediction or sign of something even when it has nothing to do with anything. Maybe I'm the idiot for doubting the Mayan's ability to see hundreds of years into the future but couldn't foresee Spain wiping them out.

    This...

    And this. Remember when people were so scared that Y2K would mean the end of the world, but when 2000 came, nothing happened? The same will happen with 2012. A year that people will get all uppity over, but when December 21st, 2012 comes and nothing happens, quite a few people who probably invested in doomsday bunkers are gonna be red in the face.

    That's what the Mayans predicted, but as Omegus Prime said, they thought they could foresee hundreds of years into the future, but they couldn't even foresee their kind getting wiped clean by the Spanish.

    Mayan #1: Hey, how far along are we with the calendar?
    Mayan #2: We're up to 2012.
    Mayan #1: Fuck it, good enough.

    if it does happen it will be through mankind's own stupid fault with weapons and the like rather than deities and the like I reckon.

    If it does happen and the rapture occurs, those who spent their lives helping others and being good will be chosen over those who were greedy and did stuff for self gain.

    Just don't worry about it :lol  if it happens, it happens and unless it's caused by mankind there was nothing to be done.
