    Of course this will make too much sense for the Chicken Littles and Nervous Nellies.

    Not trying to be critical, only curious: how many people do you think actually either think the world will end in 2012 or even consider it a possibility?

    I have heard a lot of "end of the world" jokes about 2012, but I'm fairly certain none of my friends actually think there's even the tiniest shred of truth to any of that.

    If it is going to end, let it end before I work today and not after. But not until after I walk the dogs.

    Probably no more than the people who believe in black helicopters. But there's enough. Scan the internet for five minutes.

    Well that's just great. The world's supposed to end on Friday, Dec. 21, a payday. And I'm currently scheduled to be off work Dec. 22-Jan. 2.

    Wonder if my employer will pay me in advance for unused holiday time?

    I had my TV on in the background one day and there was an episode of one of those wife swap shows. And this one family was a complete believer in all this. Their kids had ot carry survival packs every day, etc. And they bought thousands of dollars in furniture/cars/etc. that didn't have payments due until 2013 because that way they'll never have to pay for it.

    I hope someone revisits them in like May 2013 when they're homeless and their kids hate them.

    What good is a survival pack if the world ends??? Nimrods.

    Oh, I'm sure their kids already hate them for being on national television and openly declaring their stupidity. Imagine having to go to school the next day after that one aired.

    They went into it. Something about how only the true believers would make it. They turned it into like a Rapture type thing.

    Odin and Freya? What about Thor and Loki?

    You'd be astounded. Look at all the people who have fallen for the 3,493 guarantees of The Rapture on such-and-such a date.

    Believers want to believe. We're not fostering anti-religion, here. We're talking human nature.
