Its The End of THe World As We Know it

Is this the end? Do we know whats going on? The end of the Mayan calander is 2012. There are odd sightings of UFOs. The weather is crazy. There are many deaths from natural disasters. The world is at war. Fois Gras is banned in Chicago and Nosetradamus has a load of bad stuff in the future.
Anyone listen to Coast to Coast on the AM band?

Oh I was hoping you meant the song "it's the end of the world as we know it", but I feel fine

Ok, I'm more of an optimist..so with that in mind here are some explanations.

I claim to know nothing about the Mayan calendar, but I doubt the world will end in 2012.

Sitings of UFO's , come on now.

Weather is crazy because it's an El Nino year ( thought there may be other factors with weather that I do not discount)

Many deaths from natural disasters, well, yea, thats the nature of weather.

Yep, there will always be wars, always has been

Fois gras banned

Nostredamus was too philosophical and probably under the influence of something at that era

AM? Whats that?

ambuh, check out the mayan long count calendar on the web. interesting stuff.

sush, the mayan calendar, or long count calendar has been interpreted to "end" in december 2012, around the 21st or 23rd.

actually, it's only a mathematical computation where the cycle returns to "zero", for lack of a better term.

there is, as so far has been theorized, no apocolyptic forecasts from mayan ruins. no one really knows why they just stopped predicting the future (which a calendar was, back in the day).

as far as nostradamus goes: after you finally meet your redhead, i will be able to have interpreted elfie's recipes to show that it was destiny.

she's some cook, huh?
