Oh, I'm sure they'll come up with a new date and a great (read: BS) explanation of why they had to postpone. "The Mayans forgot to carry the one" or some such...

1/3/13 has a nice look to it, in which case you'd better hurry up with that conspicuous consumption! When nothing happens in two days' time, then you can blame it on American date notation and begin preparations for your real doom on 3/1/13...

When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

The morning of August 12, 2045.

The BM festival will be start earlier in the month that year and there will be 300000 festival goers, each with a personal MV served by a network of fueling stations covering the entire playa. There will be 1500 LEO's to enforce the regulations. The major fast food keiretsu, Microsoft-Starbucks-Anheuser-Busch InBev-Samsung, Google-SABMiller-Panerra-ADM-Sony, Amazon-Tsingtao-Subway-GE-Foxcon, Facebook-7-11-Burger King-News Corp-Cargill-LG, and Apple-Heineken-Carlsberg-Diageo-Nestle-Sharp will have drive in restaurants and roving food trucks. There will be vegan meat options, grown in tanks in the desert. There will be a portable runway capable for handling small - medium airliners. There wil be 4 temples and 4 effigies creating burning exhaustion. And there will be several camps with swimming pools and mini-nuclear reactors to power their air conditioning, especially the villages entirely enclosed in sealed domes. The event will be a month long. By that time, the United States will be so consumed by leisure with all the work done by robots that it will be no problem for everyone to take a month vacation. In addition to the on-site attendees, a million will be jacked into a massive real time online simulation of the event in every language. Daft Punk will perform an epic reunion show at the event, they'll be 70 then. Yes, the end of the world.

Well, there's another apocalypse passed me by. Are we all ready for the next one? All I could find was this....

The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord (founded in 1971 by polygamist James Elliso in the small community of Elijah in southern Missouri) has an offshoot calling itself The Sword of God Brotherhood which claims to have been told by no less than the Angel Gabriel that the all humans except members of the cult will "perish in hellfire" in the "dying time" in 2017.

Can't wait.

I thought it was back in 2001. Pre-Burn, I wrote, "Ever feel like its the end of the world?" We had a harvest moon on burn night, and dust devils galore! All the dust devils marched east, in a single line. About a week or so later was 9/11.
I think it will be, when Dr.Pepper goes out of business. After that...Ill welcome the end of the world.

We are going to be visited by a couple of comets in 2013. Since they are apparently new bodies, we can't be 100% sure what their trajectories will be, except that they should both be visible from Earth.

Burning Man died out by the 2040's, but there are reports of an old hermit appearing on the old BRC site. Observers report that this hermit appears out of the ground, where he is rumored to have built himself an underground geodesic refuge. A few of the groups who have gathered there on occasion, hoping that their presence will result in the return of Burning Man, BRC, hippies, hipsters, and the like (although all were long ago banned by Nevada legislation), report being startled by the sudden appearance of "Bob" among them, asking "Has the gate opened yet? I've been hiding out waiting for gate since I couldn't buy a lottery slot for the Gladiator Ticket Competition!". It's also reported that he'll trade historic plastic beads for just about anything, even fake pink fur, and frequently seems to mistake the sound of their mis-functioning historic vehicles for music, as he appears to dance to their sound. Efforts were made, then abandoned, to evict him from the site, but those few who managed to find anything reported being chased off by blue-jeans fired at them at great velocity, with just a glimpse through the blowing dust of someone holding a long tube and the sound of "Arrr, there be shirtcockers!"

Anything to keep me from making long term goals or have any hope for the future. Please people, I need to know the end is coming soon. I'm too accustomed to living in constant fear, what would I do with peace of mind. Idle hands is the devil's work. :roll:
