    But considering the Mayan calendar is based on solar and lunar cycles, which which Leap Year has nothing to do, it means that the end of the universe would be well into 2014. 21 Dec 2012 is the "end of the universe" date adjusted to account for Gregorian Leap Years.

    Thanks for the tips. I will gas up tonight and fill the tub with water and order an inflatable boat from Amazon tonight.

    Well, Breaking Bad and That Favorite Zombie Apocalypse come to mind "Walking Dead". Well, and some sort of makeshift weapon like a shovel or baseball bat. We all know that what they show on t.v. is truthful and I'm sure that's why they've put preppers on t.v.

    Oh yeah, and Jesus can't drive. At least not 55.

    He strongly recommended everyone building underground cellars to live in through the fires. But, you should also be gathering work horses cuz you'll need them after the flood as we'll all be living in 'Little House On The Prairie' times. And of course, take the horses into consideration when building your boats. It all seemed so crazy - with a hint of common sense.

    After he left I politely, yet firmly, asked the reception desk to NOT send unknown people to my office.

    So I had to check, and my hunch was right....

    FX will be showing the movie "2012" on December 21st...as long as we're still here.

    I wonder if they are hoping they won't have to show it.

    Yeah, I always get a kick out of the people who think "Well, if a long dead civilization with a limited knowledge of the world or universe said it, it must be true." These dudes didn't even understand basic sanitation like washing your hands after you take a dump.

    Re: Stock Up Now

    I'm actually wondering what the next big freak out is going to be. I remember as a kid first hearing about the Nostradamus stuff. Originally all of his believers predicted the EOD to be in '87, that didn't happen so it was '94, then it got moved to 2000 in conjunction with the whole Y2K thing. That didn't happen so now he's even linked in with the Mayans on the 2012 thing. So yeah, isn't there an asteroid coming around 2024 or something like that? It's perpetual idiocy, it's like the human race can't function without something to worry about.
