So disappointed. I didn't even need my tinfoil hat. Not much of an apocalypse so far. Oh, well, there's always tomorrow. *sigh*

It's a clever trick.

Me, I am hoarding all the ammunition I can find. Since all traces of civilization will be wiped out, I am focusing on nice stones for my sling and stone-tipped arrows.

um, truth be told, this has nothing to do with anything except i found this awesome coat at the thrift store last night and i have to wear it to the playa next year.

postponing the end is totally selfish on my part.


it was a fashion driven decision.



yeah, im THAT shallow.

Make a joke about the world ending on Friday being good for your finances, have the Bible explained to you... :roll: Sometimes I almost DO want one of these "prophecies" to come true, just to shut some people up!

If the power and gas utilities were turned off for an hour (or so) on the 21st, would that freak some people out???

I read a science fiction story about that...

A really big solar flare would also be interesting. :twisted:

Thailand is 15 hours ahead of us but I don't think the Mayans knew that. I'll go by local time when I plan on being vaporized.

Joseph Campbell wrote:Apocalypse does not point to a fiery Armageddon but to the fact that our ignorance and our complacency are coming to an end. Our divided, schizophrenic worldview, with no mythology adequate to coordinate our conscious and unconscious -- that is what is coming to an end. The exclusivism of there being only one way in which we can be saved, the idea that there is a single religious group that is in sole possession of the truth -- that is the world as we know it that must pass away. What is the kingdom? It lies in our realization of the ubiquity of the divine presence in our neighbors, in our enemies, in all of us.
