So this is the teaser trailer for Roland Emmerich's new epic disaster flick, 2012
It's unclear what exactly the cataclysm is supposed to be here, but rest assured it will cost millions for the FX department and look really cool
Never before has a date in history been so significant to so many cultures, so many religions, scientists, and governments. '2012' is an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors.

Technically there would be no survivors if the world really ended

Also, 2012 on the Mayan calendar is simply the end of the 13th B'ak'tun and not the actual end of everything, but rather signals a tremendous shift in the order of the world

So talk about how much money this movie will or will not make

and maybe we can talk about crazy 2012 apocalyptic scenarios - like Sarah Palin running for President!

EDIT
For everyone's amusement, I include here a link to Survive 2012, which is no doubt full of absolutely laughable mystical shit

Grey Ghost on

    That really pisses me off, actually, since plenty of stupid people already buy into the 2012 nonsense. This is just fanning the idiotic flames.

    His predictions for this transcendent event were wide ranging and varied, depending on his audience, and different times he conjectured the following: the mass of humanity would, by means of some technology, become mentally conjoined in a great collective; the moment in which time travel became a reality; the birth of self-conscious artificial intelligence; a global UFO visitation; and occasionally he even expressed doubt whether anything at all would happen. However, McKenna claimed that there was no contradiction between these scenarios, as they might all happen simultaneously.

    SIMULTANEOUSLY

    that would be awesome, the UFO's will come just as we form into an AI collective consciousness and time travel away

    HELLO IS ANYONE HOME?

    we should leave some sort of away message
