Arrow 12/21/12

It is probley the first date that I will create my first video game for my carrer! Then release it in 2014 or 2015.

Enough about that. The date (December 12, 2012) is a special date. The date that they will stop using calenders? Lets us discuss.

Why wouldn't they make calenders? The didn't in 08/08/08. There's no reason (unless I'm missing something stupid?)

On December 12th, 1912 we still were using calendars, and we still are today.

Ah, the twelth day of the twelth month, two-thousand and twelve. The day that I officially turn into an adult (18). :D Yay me. ^^

12/12/12 FTW!

On topic: No, I don't think they'll stop using calendars when it comes. Why would they? They didn't all the other 12/12/12s.

So, is this a forum version of Conan O'brien's "The year 2000" sketch?

If so: on 12/12/12 the world's coal industry is finally replaced by clean-burning Chuck Norris.

I was under the impression that the 12/12/12 was the date that we were all going to die, according to the Aztecs.

We're not going to die and we're not going to stop using calenders.

That's actually December 21st or 24th, I don't remember. But it's not even when we are supposed to die, it's bee misinterpreted that way. All it says is that we will come into a period of enlightenment.

I'm pretty sure it was the Mayans, but whatever. The reason they would stop making calenders is because the Mayan Caldender ends on 2012, (forget the exact day) so the Mayans just assumed it was the end of the world, because after that, there was no date. But, since there is no evidence that the sun will burn itself out, or the world will blow up, I think we're safe. :]

Actually, I watched a show on it. Apparently whats supposed to happen or w/e is that the fifth of 5 cycles will finish. Each cycle is a period of like 5120 years or something. it adds up to 25600 years and ends on the date of sometime in december. It said something like the world will break down and will be recreated or enlightenment or something. Don't remember everything. There were also a few other reports of the world ending on that date. One was the true merlin, whos name was actually merfyn or something, who was a wild man in the jungle =P. Another was one of the native american tribes chiefs. I believe it was black elk. Two random fortune tellers. Don't remember them all. Anyways you get my point =P

Lol, a Russian cult predicted that the world would end on that date, as did the Aztecs and for some reason, the calendars would be ineffective. Pfft. Who cares.

What's the theory of the calendars? I think it had to do with a Roman Calendar? It ran out of numbers? Something like that? Eh. But today's calendars, we just change a few numbers, etc. etc.

We're all gunna die. Just like we did in 2000, 2006, 2008 and every year in between when the numbers all align. Did anyone stay awake for that moment when it went 1 2 3 4 5 6 ? It was like in seconds, etc. etc. Pretty cool.
