Okay, so, 12/21/12 is supposed to be the end of the world according to some, don't worry, I know who you are....
So, if the world does end, I will gracefully accept my death and acknowledge that you tried to warn me (although I'm not too sure what I would have done differently)
On the other hand, if 12/22/12 rolls around with no end of the world, I expect... no, DEMAND a public apology to be made on this thread. Not only that, I want you to admit that you are not a super genius, that knows all these super secret things that everyone else is so stupid or blind to see, and that you jump on band wagons like this to feed your insatiable hunger for attention, and to feel smarter.

I will remember this date....

So the bottom line is that if we're all still standing in 2013 we get to do tequila shots? Hmmmm.....I think more would be nice. Maybe cheesecake?

Nothing would better than to send a Christmas card to the 2012 believers on 12/25/2012 :)

Ahh. IC. The reason I said that was on wife swap Friday they had a couple who were all set for 2012 and believe the world will end. They have all sorts of survival stuff, gas masks, food ect. Wont let their kids go to school without a survival kit, they have to come home right after school in case there is a disaster. They also will not let people in their homes so the strangers will not know they are well prepared. They teach their kids how to fight off zombies. Zombies in their words are people who will try to steal your stuff when 2012 hits...lol. Poor kids cant have friends, cant go to friends homes, cant have friends over, when they are home all they do is prepare for the end of the world. They have a count down board till the end f the world. they even moved to the middle west out in the boonies so they were far away from "zombies"..lol..

Just imagine if they are right. Everyone will be banging on their door to share the supplies. If people want to be prepared, leave them alone. Worst case scenario, they have a lot of junk on December 22nd 2010.

I'd rather imagine something realistic, like an endless keg of frosty beer! http://tinyurl.com/2a25342

Funny thing is, it is realistic. There are asteroids that zing past our wee planet that would destroy us if it were to hit. Look at Mars for example. The face of it is peppered with asteroid holes. Each one of those asteroid crevices are about the size of an average state. An asteroid that size would destroy the earth. So it isn't unimaginable. It is realistic. The prediction of when it will happen may be out in left field, but the realism of it happening is all too real.

this 2012 BS is all in your heads, it's fear propoganda at it's best, orchestrated by the puppet masters that are pulling all the strings...it's not the end of the world, it's the end of ignorance & lies, the beginning of truth & wisdom. WAKE UP!

The theory of 2012 is an absolute joke, and anyone that believes it should be ashamed of themselves.

Like Man-Made Global Warming, lower sea levels, the BP oil fiasco polluting all the world's waters, earthquakes signaling some kind of 'end' ...all this and more is totally hyped up, merely a byproduct of our Hollywood culture. So ingrained is society by what they see on TV, see at the theaters, and hear on the radio, that they figure their lives must follow some type of Hollywood script; and that script calls for some kind of disaster always right over the horizon. The world just can't trudge along, day after day, without some kind of looming disaster.

After all, that's not how it works in Hollywood.

Don't forget, only a few will see it coming and be man's only hope for survival, and he will get the pretty girl at the end.....

The asteroids capable of causing a global disaster if they hit the Earth are extremely rare. They probably would need to be about a kilometer (http://starchild.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/StarChild/glossary_level1/glossary_text.html#kilometer) or more in diameter. Such bodies impact the Earth only once every 100,000 years on average. Other objects of a similar size, such as comets (http://starchild.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/StarChild/glossary_level1/glossary_text.html#comet), impact even less frequently, perhaps once every 500,000 years or so.

Remember, Christ was born 2010 years ago and it seems like an impossible long time ago.

Which makes you wonder... how do they come up with these "averages" :wink:
(I'm sure there is a long, complicated mathematical procedure)

Based on studies of moon craters, moon impacts and dating those you can calculate an average size and time frame.
