Happy Easter!
Here's a quick fact about Easter 2011. Eastern and Western Christianity usually celebrate Easter on different days because they follow different calendars. However, for two years in a row (2010-2011), Easter has been celebrated on the same day by both East and West. This super rare. In fact, it's so rare that some people attribute it to the theory that the world will end soon (like the 2012 thing with the Mayan calendar).

At least that's what my professor told me on Friday right when class ended.

New things I learn every day. Happy Easter, everyone! biggrin

You do know that 2012 thing is just the end of the Mayan calendar cycle, right? It's kind of like saying the world would have ended in 1999 because 2000 began a new millennium.

If that was a joke then by all means ignore me bigrazz

...He is aware of this... hence the "some people".

Of course, for some people, the world will end in 2012.
'Cause they'd be dead.


» Grumpy on April 24th, 2011, 9:56pm

That's roughly 60m people.


» Toto on April 25th, 2011, 12:24am

Yep, not even one percent of the population.


» Turbophoenix on April 24th, 2011, 11:10pm

The "some people" part does not refer to the 2012 end of the world theory, it refers to people attributing the coincidence to some higher meaning.


» Ascension on April 28th, 2011, 10:22am

2012 is not even the end of the mayan calendar cycle. seems they miscalculated the calendar when they corresponded it with our calendar... and they slipped 50-100 years. smile hah.


» mattai on April 24th, 2011, 10:24pm

You'd think after all the false alarms on "the world is going to end in year XXXX!" people would stop falling for it.


» xtr3m3dude on April 25th, 2011, 12:06am

You underestimate human stupidity.


» Poodicus on April 25th, 2011, 1:03am

correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the world suppose to end in 1985, 1993, 2000. so whens the next time the world's gonna end after 2012 doesn't happen?


» Toto on April 25th, 2011, 1:27am

I vote for 2020 on February 20th at 8:20 pm... or 20:20.


» JohnHomos on April 25th, 2011, 3:13am

So 2020 02/20 20:20:20
------------| |----------------
That's not so perfect


» Toto on April 25th, 2011, 6:50am

No shit.


» jrdragon2003 on April 25th, 2011, 1:26pm

i think it's better if you use 8:20 instead to be consistent in your combo breaking.


» asrodeia on April 26th, 2011, 7:56pm

Why not just say, feb 22, 2222, at 10:22? so 2222 2/22 22:22:22?


» Toto on April 27th, 2011, 11:44pm

because it's sooner.


» xria on April 26th, 2011, 3:07pm

There is a website that no longer gets updated at that gathered all the doomsday predictions they could find, there were dozens each year, and no doubt many more they never heard of - considering historically most of them pretty much disappear when they turn out to be rubbish.


» Scyfon on April 25th, 2011, 5:41am

That's some professor you have there.
What a way to end a class!


» Shaaka on April 26th, 2011, 8:04am

So the world will end? So what? Old Things Ended, is a beginning of New Things, that's the way of the world.

Maybe now manga world will be born after this who knows, that is IF the world ends at 2012.


» Trejon on April 27th, 2011, 5:37am

cant believe people are still saying that XD, when we get to the 2013 i will just laught at their faces


» a_v on April 28th, 2011, 8:28pm

If a dog crapped on their lawn and they wake up to find the turd, nutjobs would take that as a sign that the world was about to end.
