Skip to comments.Mayan apocalypse: panic spreads as December 21 nears
Posted on 12/07/2012 7:10:55 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Ahead of December 21, which marks the conclusion of the 5,125-year "Long Count" Mayan calendar, panic buying of candles and essentials has been reported in China and Russia, along with an explosion in sales of survival shelters in America. In France believers were preparing to converge on a mountain where they believe aliens will rescue them.
The precise manner of Armageddon remains vague, ranging from a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, a disastrous crash with a comet, or the annihilation of civilisation by a giant solar storm.
In America Ron Hubbard, a manufacturer of hi-tech underground survival shelters, has seen his business explode.
"We've gone from one a month to one a day," he said. "I don't have an opinion on the Mayan calendar but, when astrophysicists come to me, buy my shelters and tell me to be prepared for solar flares, radiation, EMPs (electromagnetic pulses) ... I'm going underground on the 19th and coming out on the 23rd. It's just in case anybody's right."(continued)

And we silly “yanks” are still worrying about Barry Benghazi’s “cliff”. LOL!
45 days which way? I admit I haven’t kept up with this thing.
What’s Mayan is urine.
My own determination was a Nov 6-7 conclusion.
Didn’t military and veterans pensions, benefits and disability pay get cancelled a couple of days ago? I thought I read something somewhere...
I dunno. The thought of spending eternity with a bunch of sanctimonious born-agains doesn't really sound too appealing. Maybe Hell in a smoky bar with like-minded sinners might be more fun.
Um, no. Where did you read such nonsense?
THE CONVERSION OF PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON
If the world is gonna end, I wanna see if we have a choice in how to go!
Man, we need a 122112 party on FR!
I am dreading the report of the mass suicide some charismatic leader will convince his followers to commit. Sigh.
“I am dreading the report of the mass suicide some charismatic leader will convince his followers to commit.”
I nominate.....hmmm, hmmmm, hmmm.
I have two fellow employees who believe 12/21/2012 will be the start of a new, improved humanity.
Google December 21, 2012 retreat - you will get a kick out of it. Do you want to spend the day with dolphins, at Machu Picchu, Hawaii?
I’d be improved, for sure, if I was in Hawaii - LOL.
This is just one more thing to get a panic started. If “Planet X” were that close; we would have already been seeing it with the naked eye a decade ago. Our calendar ends Dec. 31 every year; the Mayans just hadn’t got a new calendar produced. Besides, I’m not too thrilled about the Mayans. - The planets aren’t slated to align; that’s just an untruth. - Now, we may have more hurricanes and earthquakes. - Trust in the Lord. Go to bed and go to sleep in peace.
Oh, come on, let’s get it over with already. I’m sick of where things are heading anyway...
Look at the bright side...it falls on a Friday!
If you didn't post we could imagine that your lips are sealed and you are therefore...
wait for it...
The FReeper of the epoxy lips.
I'll be here all week, try the veal...
from a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X................................................OMG, Its Plan 9, You see? You see? Your stupid minds, stupid, stupid.
If we can steer past this Nibiru thing, everything will work out great, except for the Middle East, the economy, gay marriage and such.
