Alright bunch of hype over this date. I guess by now everyone has heard of the looming cataclysm. The world is apparently going to end on December 21th in that year. I don't believe it whatsoever. I am not buying it. I guess mostly because the calendar as we know it isn't even all that accurate. Our calendar is the Gregorian version. This calendar was based on the Julian Calendar. The Gregorian is flawed because it is based on the Julian. This whole deal makes the comparison of the the Mayan and the Gregorian calendars impossible. All this means that there is no way to tell when end of the Mayan Calendar will match up to our days. So take it for what you will.
The supposed event has led to some pretty good movies and songs and also wacky conspiracy theories.
First I don't care what anyone says -- Incubus has a damn fine rock song going on with 'Warning'. From what I can tell the warning is that we are all going to snuff out in 2012. Good message though - don't ever let life pass you by.
Also this year from the dude that brought you Independence Day comes 2012. It looks great even the White House being taken out by a friggen aircraft carrier. Holy Shit! I'd say I can't wait to see when it comes out but I know I'll wait to see it at my brother in law's house on DVD from Redbox for a buck in the man cave. I hate watching movie in the theater because dumbasses aways KICK THE BACK OF THE SEAT!! Anyhow here's the trailer:
And of course the nutty conspiracy theories. Apparently the event that is going to happen is a rouge planet called Nibiru careening through the universe. Load of crap really. But who knows? Anything is possible.
