  • I have friends like this.

    I offered to send them to Vegas on an all expenses paid, end of the world blowout party if they'd just sign over all of their worldly possessions to me (houses, cars, etc,) effective January 1, 2013.

    None of them went for it.

  • Ok, that's it. I'm going to start selling ammo.

    Three thousand or more pieces of literature claim that the Maya predicted the Earth will be destroyed on this date.

    Comics do not count as "literature."

    Tell that to Jack Chick.
  • Businesses are sure trying given their rush to get under the PPACA limits of 50 employees or 30 hours a week - whether by terminations or conversions to precarious employment(read: contractors & temporary workers).
  • I'm sure they haven't cleaned out their bugout rooms just yet anyway.
  • Society hasn't collapsed because the major tax laws haven't gone into effect yet. In 2014 the Obamacare legislation begins becoming law. It's easy to beat your chest now. Come back and let's hear about how great it is after a full 1/6 of the economy becomes government managed. In fact, you folks with student loans now all owned by Sally Mae, how's that working out for you? I hired three Comp Sci graduates you have $100K in student loans. They own more than I owe on my house.
  • Good. I expect full network coverage so I can watch it on TV.

    /commercial-free, of course

    Why would anyone need to buy ammo? Is it the end of the world? Or sorta kinda the end of the world?
  • Tue preppers couldn't care less who wins what election. The world is going to hell and society is hanging on by a thread and they ain't going down with the rest of ya. Election year preppers are like the hipsters of preppers.

    What are you on about? I have a hard time reading derp sometimes.
  • no one really knows what the date is. one day some guy said "today is January 1st !" and we've been going on that ever since......so how could anyone say an exact date for the end of the world if all the calendars are wrong?

    Uh... actually, they do know. Most calendars are based on repeated astronomical events. With modern technology and knowledge, it's relative easy to pinpoint exact dates in the future.

    It's because they predict Date B in reference to Date A, the day the prediction is made.

    Obviously their investment in education was wasted. How many people without a college degree did you hire?

    Not buying it. The tags say "From: Santa"

    In 2015 when things are fine, you'll be telling us it will take years before the full effects are felt and just wait until 2018... or some bullshiat like that.

    Or, if there is a Republican in charge, claim that every and anything good in the economy is due to that.

    Exactly. The clusterfark is well under way, We're just not feeling the consequences yet.

    We can't even manage to trim the deficit or reduce much spending at all, so when the troubles hit and we can't borrow anymore, it's going to be catastrophic. People will waje up to find that not only are tehy not getting their government check, inflation has farked the vakue of what's in their paycheck.

    Electing Romney wouldn't have miraculaously solved these problems, but of the two candidates he was the only one acknowledging it. With Obama in office and the Dems controlling the Senate, there's not a farking hope of solving any of the real problems. George W. Bush and the Senate Republicans from 200-2006 were obviously a huge part of the problem, but the democrats are utterly hopeless.
