I know it starts before the 31st of Dec. Each date something is suppose to happen.
Give me a run-down.
There was a mistake in the translation. It started on 7 December 2011.
The 21st of dec., op
12/21/12 is the end. Don't bother with Christmas presents or stress about the election too much. Obama is the final president.
Yeah, dec. 21 is the date....but Myans ddn't cout leap years which means thier date passed in 2011. See you on the 22nd.
Psshhh... We counted them in secret R7. The end of the world is coming right on schedule.
It starts before the end of December though. It's one thing after the next before total annihilation. I have to ask my kooky mother.
that reminds me, I just saw David Ehrenstein on TV, some "Discovery Investigations" show about Rock Hudson and that guy who sued his estate. he came across quite well
It has already been debunked as a crock of shit. However the freepers are playing it up to support their "end of the world" bullshit.
Fuck all of them.
I'm not a freeper...I'm just macabre and love the idea of mass deaths.
Why does anyone believe this stupid shit?
I bet that's why the dinosaurs died. They had no Mayan Calendar.
Goebbels and Hitler's love child.
This will be as exciting as Y2K.
But you guys, Silvia Brown cant see past the date!
Are you telling me that Montell would have someone lie to us on tv?
According to the New York Times, there have been scattered reports of unusual behaviour from across Russia, reportedly prompted by predictions of Armageddon.
The reports include "collective mass psychosis" in a women's prison on the Chinese border, panic buying of matches, kerosene, sugar and candles, and the building, out of ice, of a Mayan-style archway in Chelyabinsk in the south
This is a big deal in countries outside of the US. I've chatted with a few Italians and said I would come to Italy in 2013 or 14 and they said the world would no longer exist. They weren't totally serious, but it's obviously talked about more outside of the US, aka people are more stupider in other nations.
I have a box of Twinkies with a "use by" date of 12/21/12. Those Mayans were REALLY smart.

Syvia Brown was on Montel one day and the parents of a missing child were in the audience. They asked if they would see their son again and she said, basically, "No. He's dead." I'll never forget the look on their faces when they sat back down in their seats. They were destroyed. Well, a while later, the boy turned up! He wasn't dead after all. When confronted, Brown acted like she could care less. Bitch.
The planets line up on December 21. Tell me you're not worried about that?

Silvia Brown claims she can't see past December 21!
So time to max out my credit card this month!
The Mayans were referring to the Fiscal Cliff, not the end of the world.
The "Mayan Shit"? Should this be in the "People who poop in stores" thread?
What's all this fuss I've been hearing about the Marie Callendars? I don't get it it.
We're still here, bitches!
No they don't, R24. I'm more worried about you.
I dont believe anything will happen but I dont know Im not 100% either
Honestly, I don't care. It's out of my control, and if the world ends will any of us even know it?
After watching what happened after the Millenium, it can only get worse
This explains Rick Santorum.
Jesus, you asshats can't even spell Sylvia Browne' fucking name.
r33 Exactly! If we all die we die whats the big woop? As long as it isn't torturous I'm fine.
It has nothing to do with "the end," that's all tabloid crap. It signifies a change in consciousness and perspective. Simply a marker in time. Indigenous people in Latin America are amused as to why this has been so misinterpreted.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
