    Stock Up Now

    Mayan apocalypse: panic spreads as December 21 nears - Telegraph

    Ahead of December 21, which marks the conclusion of the 5,125-year "Long Count" Mayan calendar, panic buying of candles and essentials has been reported in China and Russia, along with an explosion in sales of survival shelters in America. In France believers were preparing to converge on a mountain where they believe aliens will rescue them.


    The precise manner of Armageddon remains vague, ranging from a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, a disastrous crash with a comet, or the annihilation of civilisation by a giant solar storm.
    I just ordered a 50 lb bag of beans from Amazon with two day shipping. Preparing....

    You do not want to run into mythical planets. That's all I'm going to say.

    1. The Mayans didn't account for leap years, therefore the world should have been over months ago

    No, because it means more days have passed over time than they accounted for. You would be ahead that many days, so the date would have already passed.

    Re: Stock Up Now

    Of the thousands of civilizations that have been on the planet, why is it that people believe the Mayans? If they could predict the future, why did their calendar extend past their own survival?

    Why, oh why, did I waste my summer re-siding my house? Curse you Mayans and your stupid calander.


    I used to be cool. Now... I secretly listen to Abba in my car.

    Worried about "Solar Max"? It's next year, not in 2012. Peaking every 11 years, this one is expected to be milder than most.


    Things you might say if you flunked Astro101: "Planet Niburu is real and is headed toward Earth."
