Today's Poll: Will the world end today?
Submitted by Howard B. Owens on December 21, 2012 - 8:58am
Of course it will! I've been waiting for this day since I started listening to Art Bell in 1998! I'm gonna be pissed if it doesn't happen! Anyone want a bite of my quiche?
It already did, Genesee county is just behind the times as usual
If it's going to happen I wish it would hurry up and get over with already. I have stuff to do.
You all know it's going to happen but not until later in the day because it's Friday. Why would we ever think we could get out of work early for the world ending. I told my husband it would be today also because he starts his first real vacation in a long time tomorrow.
Its a fun poll Howard. However, there has been more press and political action for gun control and the pending end of the world than there has been for the fiscal cliff. I find it really sad that one week after the shooting, that there has been more of a push for gun control and working behind the scenes for gun control, than there has been for the financial and economic problems since November.
Don't politicize the end of the world poll, Mike. There are plenty of avenues to discuss the fiscal cliff and gun control. I'm looking for more of a global awakening today anyway. Maybe if we all become a little more conscious in the "new age," gun control and fiscal cliffs won't be such issues anymore.
Sorry all of you, but I don't think it's gonna end today... However, since Howard has all the tangibles now, I'd like those of you who believe it's still gonna happen to send me your routing numbers, account numbers and PIN's!
Anywhoo... I have a book I can share with you that describes what is REALLY going to happen regarding the end of the world, and I'd like to share that with you, so hit me with a reply, and we can enlighten you!
....good bye cruel world...............
LOL dont ya'all get it? Its the end of the world as WE KNOW IT, REM said so.... We have the gun control thing, global warming, storms, floods and such, plus all sorts of redneckery going on behind the scenes. Now the last thing, the Alien culture that taught the Mayan's the celestial calendar and such need to arrive and get the ball rolling. They usuall dont arrive til after dark so we got a few hours. I think they are planning on starting at the United Nations Bldg with their anal probes. Should be entertaining til they get to us....
Like Dave said we are usually behind the times here so pop some popcorn and watch the show.
"However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows."
The Mayan calender ends on DEC 21, so the assumption some have been making is that the world will end. Our contemporary calendar ends every year on DEC 31, but no one talks about the world ending - we just unwrap the new calendar that we got for Christmas and deploy a sturdy thumbtack. If the Mayans were still around (in the way they once were) they'd roll out some new carved stone calendar and we'd be on our way, except that our thumbtacks don't work so well for something like that.
Why would anyone believe some Mayan end of the world scenario? They didn't get much else right before this, including the sustainability of their own civilization. (If I was a sophisticated webbie, I'd include a link to all kinds of photos showing all of their great Mayan construction succumbing to jungle, and a link to one of Jared Diamond's books about how civilizations collapse when they outstrip their resources, which might sound a bit familiar?). Anyway .... Mayan end of the world? Sort of like Bill Kristol's predictions about Iraq; why would we believe anything he says about anything now?
I sure hope the Mayans counted their leap years correctly. If they didn't, maybe the end of the world will happen tomorrow instead? Don't discount your Doomsdays until they've actually had a chance to hatch.
I will be waiting for the sound of a trumpet!!
lighten up boys and girls, i don't think this poll was supposed to get this deep. I'm just trying to time it so it happens at the same time i pop my last Old Millwakee!
If it does, do I still get paid for the work I'm doing today?
Actually, yeah you better, Howard. I didn't realize it but we are 5 hours PAST the end. It was supposed to be at 11:11 GMT which was 0611 here.
Oh Rick! you got stop drinking that cat *%#$ before you go blind, oh! you already wear glasses:>) Bottoms up!
Here's the simple, plaintive sound of Skeeter and her hairdo was the height of fashion then.
We opened up our Christmas presents last night just in case.
Ron i posted that to see if you were paying attention, that Coors light will make a guy quit drinkin
it has ended several times already. this could be the new begining! yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy December 22, 2012 everyone.
