bom Today the world will come to an end according to those (literal) followers of the Mayan calendar and since it was reported on the BBC news last night, it must be right! bom

Anyone know the time the Mayan's said this will happen & what time zone they were in (were there time zones back then)? Hopefully I can then convince the missus why I can't complete all the jobs she insists have to be done before Christmas... Smile

BBC news just said it's supposed to happen at 1111GMT so just under 4 hours to go...

alien Because aliens live there & have a spaceship ready to lift off, apparently the safest place is on a mountain at Bugarach in the Pyrenees but the police have cordened off the village - yet another Gallic plot to keep les étrangers out! Suspect

Are the modern calculations based on the Julian or Gregorian calendars and take Leap Years into account? Smile

We've had all the Nostradamus bollocks in the past and now there's all this Mayan calendar rubbish. The Meldrew prophecy is, "the end is nigh for millions of turkeys". Neutral

Just the end of another baktun. The next one will end in 394.26 years.

BTW you have just under 30 mins to read this posting before the Earth goes bang. Must remember to grab a coat as it could be a bit chilly when I get blown into Space.

Cheers,

Well at least the Sun's shining, the flood in my road has subsided & I had a short ride out on my Swing at 0830 (my last one?) - maybe things won't be too bad after all... We'll know in 20mins....

Well we're still here so I guess it's "baktun the drawing board" until the next prophet of doom pops up. So much for superstition - not that I believed any of that guff of course... cyclops

Now you've got to get back all the things you gave away thinking you wouldn't be needing them again - bet you didn't give your money away like some idiots did.

There has been a number of prophecies regarding the end of the world, 242 are listed here.

I'm good either way. I'm inside and warm if nothing happens, and I'm prepared if something does happen. Good luck to all!

Never mind the end of the world - this coalition government can't even get the current things right so God help us if they get into predicting the future!! No


BTW (trendy mobile speak) - is it just my computer or have the smilies stopped moving? - Or maybe it's just the world they inhabit that no longer exists!! What a Face

You could have given all to me and I'd have given you a cheque in return. Laughing

Seems like the world came to the end for the Mayans a long time ago, and they were way off.

Atrick,

Your politicians must be as inept and as incompetent as ours

That's a really frightening thought.

Enough politics, time to get on the Wing and ride before we run out of time

Now how do you all know our world didn't end today and that we're now in an alternate universe? Unfortunately if that's true my arthritis came with me. Mad
