I'm sure you have heard about this date.  Its the date the Mayan Calander ends, the same date many chosen by many "see'ers" to be the date the world comes to an end.  Recently, science has discovered a black hole in the MilkyWay that was foretold by the Mayans many years ago.  Which scientist claim could potentially cause a violent shift of the poles, envoking major Earthquakes, Tsunami's, etc, etc.

Anyone a believer?  :-X

Sounds like a good excuse to justify the expense of a new bike.  ;D

I'm tapping into my 401k right now..Mojo SL's all around :)


Actually, I do find all this stuff interesting reading in an entertainment sort of way.

I always thought that the Mayans believed in "cycles" of the earth and that Dec. 21, 2012 was simply the end of whatever cycle we are currently on.

As stated, if they were so awesome at predicting things why aren't they still around to tell us the winning lottery numbers or something useful.

Depends on your definition.
Will the earth explode, NO.

Will  Humans be around?  Heck were just an asteroid away from being extinct...

I think you're right about the cycle belief, but I believe their calander continued through the cycles, and just abruptly ends on the said date in 2012.

Also, if memory serves me right, Edgar Cayce predicted a similar date.  The chinese I Ching also stops on the same date.  The specific date has been recorded throughout history by different people, in different places at different times.

Even Einstein had mentioned that the poles have shifted in the passed.  Could this be the date it happens again?

I don't know if any one follows nostradamus but he also predicted this event in 2012. But in his assessment it wasn't the end of times but the second coming.  let the Y2K12 hysteria begin!!

Has anyone ever cared about a prediction that the world would continue? or that this year will be a less than active year for hurricanes?

WORD..

Just be advised all, and everyone, the Earth does not need us to continue.....Humans as a species have a higher probability of not existing eventually then continuing to exist... Its just the reality of it all...None of us will get to find out what happens, unless of course you believe in reincarnation...

I agree with you Los.  The end of the world isn't that...it's just the end of life on Earth, for most species anyways.

Also, I heard something about Yellowstone Natl Park...some link between it and weather or volcanic activity.  Anyone heard about that?

Well I am building a time machine right now, I been designing it since grade school and came up with a prototype couple of years ago and sent a mice to a diffeent dimension. So I am hoping it will be 100% operational before the apocalyptic talks you guys mentioned of course the only thing I will be bringing is my bike which I think needs to be non-metallic in nature so it will not disrupt the flux capacitor which powered the whole machine.

Thus my problem right now is how to come up with a design of non-metallic bike material which can withstand at least a 5 ft drop. I do not know where will be my destination since the mice I sent has not come back yet.

At the end of the day, I will be out of this dimension before the world ends and continue my pursuit of riding my bike whenever and wherever.

Peace.
