    Well other than some hard rain, things seem to be fine this 12/21/2012… 🙂

    When the end of the world comes, don’t forget your towel.

  • MephLord

    Yet another disappointment of a doomsday prophecy.  And I stockpiled too many cans of refried beans to throw them all out now.

    • The_Stig

      Why is the apocalypse always such a bloody letdown?

      • Sofie Liv

         So you are telling me, that I walked around with a towel over my shoulder all day, for nothing?

        Well, that’s anti climatic. I want my money back.

          Could you let us know when the world starts ending?  You’re nine hours ahead of me, so when Europe kerplodes, I’ll still have a few hours left.

          • Sofie Liv

            Well.. it’s compleately and absolutely dark out-side right now, plus what-ever you put outside will be frozen to ice.

            But that also happened yesterday! This is cheating! Beside, i’m of the norse branch any-way, so! Ragnarok! before we get to Ragnarok we need the seven fenbul winthers, where there are nothing but ice and snow covering the land for seven whole years, before an army of giants, trolls, jotenheims, vætter and jætter march in through the human world, and all the gods and valkyries comes from the other side to fight a battle.

            Hel mistress of the underworld will come sailing in on the boat she made from dead peoples nails, Odin will be eaten by the wolf Fenrir, Thor will slay Fenrir in revenge but then fall to the midgaard worms poision, though not before having speared it with Odins speak, the wolf always chasing the sun will finally swallow it, Heimdal will succumb to his own flame sword as he looses control, but will also take a hundred trolls with him with that single strike, and they all will die in glorius battle.

            Now that’s a prober the end of the world! .. not this bull-shit.

            Now see, I want to be ended like that.  Preferable next to a sexy lady.

          • Sofie Liv

             It’s norse mythology.. they laugh at the idea of celibacy.

            You know how Zeus is known for sleeping around?… we can get into a real discussion about who was worse, him or Odin.
            there’s plenty of naked women in there, in this mythology female beauty is some-thing you don’t hide away or deny yourself.

            Beside didn’t you listen? the valkyries flies in together with the gods to fight. The beautiful warrior women whom collected warriors from the battle field and brought them to the halls of Valhal where they can drink and fight.. until the day of Ragnarok where they all die!… again..

            That’s the ideal after-life for a viking apparently just.. drink and fight.

          • Jay_Bay

            Exactly.  And  I knew a lil bit of Norse mythology.  They are berserking badasses.

        • Thomas Stockel

           Ah, a Hitchhiker’s reference.  Awesome. 🙂  Required reading by all nerds.

    The world was going to end, but someone played the Oath to Order.

  • The_Stig

    He did it! El Santo saved us!

    This video title card is an obvious “2012” spoof, but…just the way Renegado has his back to the camera, it really does look like it could be a real-life album cover.

    “Just in time for Christmas: the critically acclaimed fifth CD by The Film Renegado: `This Too Shall Pass'”.

    • Heck yeah, then a re-release on new years!

    In case you’re wondering when the world will really end-well, that depends. Assuming we don’t kill ourselves, then by certain definitions
    * 600 million years from now, the sun’s increased luminosity will result in the majority of plant-life dying and nothing replacing them. Don’t expect anything more complex than an ant colony
    * 1 billion years from now, the sun’s increased luminosity will reach a point that a massive greenhouse event will cause the world’s oceans to boil. The end of all life is here
    * 7-8 billion years from now, Earth will likely be destroyed by the dying red giant sun. Even if its not, it’ll be a cinder
    * 20 billion or more years from now, the Universe will be torn apart in the Big Rip. That’s assuming the acceleration of the universe is enough to cause the Big Rip.

    * 100 trillion years-Assuming the Universe is there, star formation will cease

    *10 to the 40 years-Proton decay results in the corpses of all stars to decay into radiation

    * 10 to the 100 years-No more black holes. The universe ends not with a bang, but with a whimper
