So we've all heard that suff 'bout the world ending later this year, which I personally don't believe in, but if it did end, how would you think it would? Personally, I think it would be a severe economic collapse that would basically collapse socity, whast do you guys think?

Er, actually.. Sometime this year, there's supposed to be a massive solar storm that could completely destroy our electronics, so.. That would **** up quite a lot.

SublEDIT: And also, all these revolutions and threats of war and nuclear weapon development? I think there's quite a few feasible reasons, but maybe not this year.

Who said interpreters mean the world ? What if they mean the internet, which (though not techinically) pretty much functions as a world, or is used by us in that way.

Now THAT sounds feasible, considering ACTA, SOPA, PIPA, and many more bills and policy changes that will come around the corner.

Just look it up. It's accepted by most astrophysicists.

Every 11 years or so, there's a solar storm, but they don't normally do much, so people don't really pay attention. This year, there should be another, and it's supposed to be quite large.

So many people will start believing (and constantly talking about) the world ending this year that it starts seeming credible to even sane, rational people. As the realization hits that this might be the last year any of us get, people will say "Screw your rules, society, I'm doing what I want!" There will be a spree of robbery, rape and murder, even as world governments grind to a halt. Riots will break out, and thousands will die. By the time 2013 begins, there won't be enough left of modern government and culture to rebuild, and we'll descend into the stone age. The loss of a strong centralized medical system will result in millions of deaths from illness and injury, and the destruction of our agricultural system, currently so heavily industrialized as to be unworkable without fast, efficient means of travel, will lead to widespread starvation. Starvation leads to increased banditry. The real end will come when one of the brave men and women who devoted their last days to protecting the world's nuclear weapons from the marauders finally snaps, and in a moment of despair, fires a few missiles. Besides leveling cities, these will spread radiation into the water and air, where they will spread over thousands of miles, rendering half the planet unlivable. And all because people wouldn't shut up about the Mayans.

There are numerous possible reasons that the world as we know it could end any day now, I really don't think it'll happen though.

The cycle takes 11 years, yeah. But it's been over 11 years since we've had it last, so we're overdue.

Yeah, so it could happen at any moment, and it most likely will be relatively enormous.

But yeah, honestly, there are so many different ways that the world could plausibly end, that saying there isn't any way is just ignorant.. And "end" doesn't mean all life dies or something of that nature.

Wait.

What?

Why?!

Look, the world could end in 2012, or it could end in 2013, or it could end in 2014, or you could make a plausible argument that it will end in some sense every day from now until the heat death of the universe. There are some good reasons it might be this year. There are just as many reasons why it could have been last year or the year before that. So why assume this one? Well, because for once, it was pointed out. Yes, that solar storm could knock out communications worldwide, but the odds of that happening are a hell of a lot slimmer than the odds that I get hit by a bus and die tomorrow. Most of the other reasons people give are just ridiculous--for example, there is approximately a zero percent chance of a huge asteroid colliding with the Earth this year. So I'm just going to go ahead and take this thread as a complete joke, just like every other thread, article and conversation about the world ending this year, and you can go ahead and disregard everything I say on the subject, okay?

Yes.

I may not make it, but I'm going to try.

Frankly I'm glad there are a lot of people that don't want to make it. I'm going to travel and take their guitars...
