December 2012 is almost here! Are you ready? What do you think is going to happen?
I spend a good part of my time reading about occultism and I can't wait. Maybe the Annunaki will visit us again. It's the end of the cycle after all.
Let's talk about conspiracies!

We'll all still be here being useless retards with no hope and nothing will change.
>> No. 16874 [Edit]
I think the only thing that will happen is a bunch of fear mongering assholes who started this shit will look like the lying assholes they are, just like the crap ton of other dipshits who have predicted the end of the world only to watch it keep on spinning.
>> No. 16876 [Edit]
>> No. 16877 [Edit]
Hopefully the world really ends and everybody dies or something, but it's very likely that nothing will happen. Maybe the crime rate might go up for a short bit with people thinking that they can get away with anything since the world is "ending".

There's an anime convention in Ohio during that general time period. It's called 'Anime Acopalypse'. Perhaps I will be there....I dunno.

Nothing is actually going to happen but everything will continue to get worse, little by little.

Many things will happen that day, OP, but not a single one of them will be related to the subject at hand.
>> No. 16905 [Edit]
In reality, probably nothing aside from several million people being disappointed. Life will go on and continue to be shit.

Although I kind of hope something happens, if only to just shake up the monotony of life as we know it. So yeah, I guess I'd be among the disappointed masses too.

Didn't recent studies reveal that 2012 wasn't actually the correct year the Mayans predicted and it's actually much later?

Hopefully all the Ford Drivers kill themselves and leave us the planet of the NEETs.
>> No. 16916 [Edit]
My bet is that nothing will happen but if this planet does turn into a wasteland I wouldn't care either. I'll have fun stealing shit and just in general doing whatever the fuck I want with no one to stop me especially if the internet somehow remains online. Well that is if I find away to survive while everyone else is dieing.
>> No. 16928 [Edit]
Everyone is always worried about how they're going to survive after shit hits the fan, but in end of the world scenarios it's always something like 70% of the worlds population dies in the first day. why not play the odds and just accept you'd probably die.

People sure do develop some amusing delusions of grandeur when it comes to this stuff. I highly doubt people who can't live without the support of their mother are going to be able to survive in a post apocalyptic every man for themselves type society.
get real, weak leaches like this >>16848 will starve to death. only the strong, the prepared and street smart will truly survive.
>> No. 16934 [Edit]
>I highly doubt people who can't live without the support of their mother are going to be able to survive in a post apocalyptic every man for themselves type society.

Only one person in this thread said they were gonna go wild and everyone else said they would probably die, so I'm not sure who you are talking to.

That's if we're lucky.

If we're not, then it'll end up just like in Hokuto no Ken and we'll become slaves and we'll get forced to work on some stupid shit until we die.

You would probably be raped to death after they run out of women, if you live that long.

>> No. 16959 [Edit]
The supposed end of the Mayan calendar already passed last year at some point; leap years were not declared or in practice when the calendars was made, so the "doomsday" has actually already passed us by.

I wager that there's going to be a shitload of violent crime and general craziness from hardcore believers when the day hits, though.
>> No. 16983 [Edit]
Well when societial restraints are gone, you can pretty much do whatever you what. Why do you need a job or the 'normal' social status bullshit when you can go all rambo and shit?
>> No. 16984 [Edit]
how would they run out of women? I would think they would run out of men first in that sort of scenario, but doomsday scenarios tend to result in an even gender ratio of death as opposed to old school major wars.
>> No. 17007 [Edit]
I can assure you when all of society falls apart many normals and all their precious laws and morals they cling to will also fall apart as they all turn into rabid animals. People will be tearing at each others throats till there is no one left no matter who they are. The only thing that will matter and remain is instinct with some intelligent judgement and the survival skills, who is your enemy and who is your friend. There is no system for you to rely on anymore for judgement and that's why normals will become the most aggressive and insane one's on this planet when everything falls apart. Their entire being is built from man made law and the collective view of modern society. Unless you are prepared and highly skilled in survival, you will not survive very long no matter what kind of person you are.
>> No. 17012 [Edit]
December 2012 already...I hope I die before 2013 kicks in.

As a general rule, unless it is a cosy catastrophe, yes the chances are weighted against you - but it wouldn't be an acopalyse if not for that - hah

its also a staple of post-apoc media to have a warlord or general who used to be a fucking insurance salesman or someone who worked on computers

>> No. 17055 [Edit]
why wouldn't anyone uphold them? while many police officers are corrupted, I believe there still plenty that would continue to do the job in-spite of low or no pay. ever hear of vigilante justice? some people seem to really really want us to turn to a mad max fist of the north star type of world, but I just can't see that realistically happening on a global scale.
even some of the most fucked up places in africa still have some form of law enforcement, as shitty and corrupt as it may be. people will always try to establish order and leadership, it's only natural, you see it everywhere from super power nations, small tribes in the far off jungles, and even street gangs, they've leadership and rules they abide by in their group. even religions have their ways of enforcing rules, used to be the church had it's own form of police that kept order.
The only people that will turn to this >>17007 will be outcasts of society who struggle to survive as bandits while everyone else rebuilds society. in case you didn't notice, even in mad max and fist of the north star, there were plenty of examples of people building communities with clear signs of order, defending themselves from bandets who also had their own system of doing things within their community. max and ken both relied heavily on other people to survive and gather supply's. very few people can get by on their own. humans will naturally try to work together, which will inevitably form communities, which results in rules and laws.

Aliens will show up on December 21, not because Mayan prophecies say so but because they've been listening in on our communication signals and are aware that a lot of people expect something and as a result it would be less disruptive. So it ends up being a self-fulfilling prophecy.

While there may be merits to going to some anime cons, a con called "anime apocalypse" is certain to draw a fucking horrid crowd of Hot Topic hipsters and bullshit like that.

Millions of peolple already get sick and die in the most stupid and horrible ways all around the world, all the time, with no one (nor you, nor me) lifting a finger. You don't really need the petty pretext of zombies (either as a joke or a narrative aproach on pandemia) to derail a thread into a social remorse argument. Don't jump over nothing.

I finally understand that the NPCs in Majora's Mask were not that far off from reality when you think about it. I always expected them to be more and more panicked since the world was going to end but I guess we have a good example that people will just carry out as usual even if the most doomsaid of times.

or maybe it's becuase only complete fucking retards believe this 2012 shit. You can't compare it to actually seeing your immanent destruction every time you look up at the moon.
>> No. 19412 [Edit]
I understand what you mean and thought about it but, but then again both are cases of incredulity which are comparable if not equal. Still serves as an example.
>> No. 19413 [Edit]
No, they're not. In one case you can see the moon getting closer to earth with your naked eye, in the other you're going off nothing more than rumors and speculation that 'something' might happen, there's no explanation for what will happen, there's absolutely no proof, and there's nothing to back up any of the guesses anyone has of what will happen.
People will panic if they have something to panic about, the reason 2012 isn't making people panic is becuase no one actually believes this stupid shit.

That's part of the fun. Thing is the general attitude in this thread seems to be something like 'FUCK YOU AND YOUR FUCKING DOOMSDAY, IT'S BULLSHIT, GO TALK ABOUT IT ELSEWHERE'. Me, I think every end of the world is very amusing and wouldn't mind pretending I currently have my tinfoil hat on and that I'm prepared to welcome our new Cthulhu overlords. I would also love to see some articles, images an the like by people who share my amusement, stuff like >>19344 or >>19424.

For a guy for whom every day is Sunday such occassions are actually something to look forward to. I waste my days away doing the same shit every day, this could be a nice change of pace. But oh well, no fun allowed.

This thread and everything in it is dumb and useless shitposting as far as I'm concerned.
>> No. 19441 [Edit]

I'm pretty sure I could say the same for 99% of posts out there. They are useless and meaningless. The thing is they werern't supposed to be deep and meaningful in the first place.

It's not like we're posting 'DEM E/B/IN MEEMZ XDDD' or anything, it's just some silly fun at the expense of people who honestly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend the next few days in an anti nuclear bunker and so on.

Each and every time... Each and every time they talked on the media about the mayan calendar they kept showing the mexica Sun Stone, which is not even a calendar but an enriched depiction of Tonatiuh... But not even that lesson will be learned from this by the people in the world.
