    If anyone on here is really into the whole Mayan apocalypse deal, believes that the world will end on December 21, lives in the San Diego, and wants to get rid of some gear, please feel free to PM me your pickup info. I'll be by to retrieve it on December 20. Thank you, and Happy Apocalypse.

    I'm curious if this apocalyps thing is going to happen on the december 21 itself or is the moment after the 21st and actually on december 22? I find this very difficult to plan in my smartphone. Is this a whole day event? Is it possible to still plan some last minute transactions on the 21th? Also trying to determine the best moment to be at home and follow the whole thing on CNN.

    What time zone is the world going to end in?

    Can I be technical and note its just the end of a cycle in the Long Count and it just restarts again? By all means, continue to freak out.

    I didn't notice any freaking out, only sarcasm.

    What you are all forgetting, is that the Mayan calendar actually failed to take account of leap years. The world actually ended about 4 years ago.

    Didn't the world end for the Mayans centuries ago when they all mysteriously vanished due to plague, or Aztec invasion, or whatever?

    Shouldn't their doomsday calendar chiseler guy seen that one coming?

    I got a gig that night, so I couldn't care less. I can't imagine a better way to go out.

    On the lines of people predicting the future, I'm still waiting for a psychic to call me. After all, if you are really psychic, then you should know that I need your services (and also should know my phone number) and therefore should have called me by now. But I digress...

    Anyway, I'm quite certain that no matter what date/day/year/time anyone says the world will end, it won't. God will ensure no one else gets the credit for knowing but Him.

    If the Mayans were so smart, they'd still be here

    If any of you believe in psychic powers, raise my hand.

    And what if the 21st there will be this huge EMP generated by solar activity (as some say), and every electronic device stops working, and I've just wasted 1500€ on a new amp that's just as good as a menhir?
