    so we'll all know what everyone is thinking

    And thus the most violent war in all history breaks out.

    too disorganized to be a war

    mostly just anarchy
    Yeah, I suppose. Either way, love and friendship will vanish.

    If I remember correctly, the calendar proper ends, but there are places where they've found dates past 2012 and the Mayans marked them by basically showing 2012 + however many years they needed

    they just didn't make a whole damn calendar that far ahead because really, they'd done enough already

    I think the big thing comes from the Mayans believing that there have been like 3 or 4 "past worlds" that were all marked by the end of a 13th Baktun, which is what we will have in 2012, so the belief runs that we will have another instance of the old world passing away and a new one rising

    At first I thought this was going to be about the impending bee crisis thanks to the bee-like noise at the start of the trailer. In hindsight, imagining that Roland Emmerich had made a film considering the wide ranging environmental crisis resulting from the declining population of the European Honey Bee was not the cleverest conclusion to come to.

    You thought the Bees were gone when they were really just regrouping. This summer...

    From what I've been able to glean, the whole 2012 issue boils down to a slight shift in the Earth's magnetic poles. It has happened many times in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

    http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2001/ast15feb_1.htm

    The only thing I'd really worry about is the severity of the shift and how it would affect the climate. A few degrees? No big deal. If the poles flipped completely 180 degrees in about a day, then we would have thousand mile per hour gales sandblasting the surface of the planet smooth.

    So, you know, maybe we should start digging.

    edit: Yeah, the article only says that we're "overdue" for a pole shift, I know.

    first we went in on the wrong side, and then when we went to the right part his metrocard didnt work because he had just used it and the guy there said you have to wait 18 minutes. so he had to buy a new one and while purchasing the train came and went

    Pfff they can deal with 1000 mile an hour gales on dune. Why can't we? I say earthlings need to toughen up and stop pussying out about little things like winds that flay flesh from bone.

    I'm inclined to agree; the gene pool needs to be drained a little anyway.
