The World Didn't End.

So I guess I will have to actually pay the contract on the pair of iPhone 4S I upgraded to yesterday...

If the world had ended would you have been able to use it in the next life?

Still 5 hours until midnight, people (EDT)! There's still plenty of time for something to explode and kill us all!

Even the Mayans themselves were unfazed -- should this really surprise any of us!?

My favorite was some knucklehead was planning on a shooting spree because she thought there wouldn't be any consequences due to the world ending. She is in jail of course, but man, what are these people thinking?

Yeah, happened down in one of the Phoenix suburbs. She didn't go through with it, some one turned her in. The entire story is convoluted with details changing:

The Mayans couldn't even predict their own demise, and idiots out there thought the Mayans could predict the end of the world. I put these people in the same knucklehead groups that believe in UFOs, the yetti, Loch Ness monster and so on. All quacks and nutcases.

The scariest thing is these nut jobs convince other people to follow them and do mass suicides. Remember Halle-bop? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heaven'...eligious_group)

To be fair, that's no different in any way, shape or form from believing that there's a god who created the Earth. Which, mindbogglingly, half the planet's population does. I'm not surprised by literally anything that people convince themselves of. I just watch and continue to be astonished.
