    Before the year 2000, lots of people thought the y2k bug was going to wipe out society. Now people seem to be paranoid about the year 2012, which I don't recall people caring about before 2000 (although I was only 11 then, so I may be mistaken).

    After the world doesn't end in 2012, what do you think the next crazy end of the world conspiracy will be?

    Given that I'm living in the part of California that dropped into the Pacific Ocean in 1988 in accordance to Nostradamus' prophecy, I really have no comment on this. :rolleyes:

    There's already some crazy crap about an asteroid killing us all in 2036. :rolleyes:


    Honestly, I don't buy in to any of it. If the world was going to end in 3 years, the Mayan civilization would still be around to let us know. :p

    If that asteroid doesn't get us, then the next (UNIX) Y2038 will! :D

    Nostradamus-type people are professional goalpost-movers who declined to work for professional sporting leagues. So bottom line is, after each deadline, they'll just come up with something snappy to explain it away then promptly move the goalposts again.

    Yea, the number 2000 sounded fancy.
    2012 or 2038 sounds more of a wannabe precise kinds.

    End may/may not come, but that doesn't mean we all build houses next to morgues..

    What do you mean if the the world ends in 2012? The is scientifically proven, undeniable facts that proves there are many things that will happen on December 21st, 2012 which will cause the world to end. I would explain them all in great detail for you, but right now I don't have the time.
