What time will the world end?

The Mayan Apocalypse is rapidly approaching. Maybe. Assuming the Mayans were correct, here’s my question:

What time will the world end?

Will it end at the beginning of December 21st, or at the end? Will it end on local time (for the Mayans) or on UTC/GMT?

I would really hate to miss the end of the world because I was asleep or busy taking a dump. I would like to work up a pleasant buzz, make a few phone calls to say goodbye to my loved ones and fuck you to my enemies, then go somewhere where I would have a nice view of what happens.

I ain’t expecting to ascend to Heaven but I’m guessing I will be thinking some deep thoughts on religion in those final moments.

The truth is I’ll probably be right here on Doomsday, making fun of the suckers while secretly hoping they’re wrong and I’m right. But one thing is for sure, no matter what happens this weekend I’ve already accomplished my goal of spending all my money and maxing out my credit before I die.

This is an open thread.

    Obama may have to switch his discussion to mental illness instead of gun bans if this turns out to be true…..


    Mom had started the process to have him committed.

      Nah, he’ll just ignore it — he doesn’t actually care about what “caused” this — he just wants to consolidate more power over us into the Feds (and his) hands.

      The visceral hatred of guns has nothing to do with reason or logic. It’s all about getting guns out of the hands of thinking citizens. Criminals, OTH, aren’t nearly as much a problem. In fact, sometimes they can be quite useful as distractions if one is clever enough to exploit their bad behavior./sarc/

    Obama uses Newtown to fundraise. Disgusting:

    They won the campaign handily and even had $14.2 million to spare, but the Obama-Biden campaign is still raising money, this time off the president’s comments about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Connecticut.
    In email from chief campaign advisor David Axelrod that urges supporters to watch President Obama’s moving address to the community of Newtown, Conn., there are two links that open a page with a video player featuring the president’s speech and two donate buttons asking for $15-$1,000 for his campaign.

    According to the astronomical data at time and date.com
    December solstice 2012: 21 Dec 11:12 (UTC)

    but for me its only solstice ; which is still a big deal , because solstice; which means sun stands still , is the date when the light increases , or returns .
    It is a big deal for the world , Solstice celebrations are a worldwide cultural universal . Ancient peoples anxiously awaited the return of the sun , and the Royal Stars or Guardians of the Sky marked the path of the sun and were considered the pillars which held up the universe .

    Aldebaran (Tascheter) – vernal equinox (Watcher of the East)
    Regulus (Venant) – summer solstice (Watcher of the North)
    Antares (Satevis) – autumnal equinox (Watcher of the West)
    Fomalhaut (Haftorang) – winter solstice (Watcher of the South)

    If the sun went past these markers , the universe would indeed end as we know it ; because that meant the earth went out of its orbit

    So for the ancients , solstice feasts were celebrations that the world was not ending , every winter. So this solstice , we are getting a teeny taste of that “feeling” even if we know the Mayan calendar really starts over , and doesn’t predict the end of the world .

    I’d become a doomsday prepper, but I’m really afraid that I’d look at all those cans of creamed corn and just shoot myself.
