I demand a refund! (When the (real) world ends)

General Discussion
Has anyone calculated leap years to figure out when the apocalypse should have actually happened?


No, because the "Mayans don't have leap years" thing is a myth. The Mayan calendar is based on days, not years. The individual who calculated the days took leap years into account when determining the end of the world.

For a nice summary, check out this post:

I didn't, because I try to avoid anything math-related. But I'd love to know if someone else can math.


Someone did If memory serves with Leap years the Dooms day that is suppose to happen on Dec 21 2012 actually happened Nov 11th 2010 or 2011

Key point People have been predicting the end of the world since the begining of the world. So how many of them have been right? If the world is going to end there isn't anything thing that anyone of us or even our species could do to prevent it.* So enjoy your time don't worry and when the end comes the end comes.

*: I am speaking of massive no reproachable cataclysms like a supernova or a mythical deity winking us out of exsistance I know some natural disasters can be prevented.

I'll be pleased if I'm still alive.

Others, maybe.

As of right now in this particular moment, I would be disappointed. But I am all upset right now and speaking only from that dark place.

Normally I'd be happy to live.

Chin up there, pal. Disney movies are now on Netflix streaming. So the world just became a better place*.

*If you like Disney movies and have Netflix.
My account subscription expires 3 whole days AFTER the world ends. I want a refund on those 3 days so I can actually spend the money on something I can use!

Thank you


I'll tell ya what.. if the world really does end on 12/21 then I'll personally refund you the 3 remaining days.
Actually.. they have a contract but the movies won't be available til 2016.

I prefer just going to Disneyland instead. Doomsday had better not destroy Disneyland.


How will you be able to discuss options if the world ended. I don't think it but just curious.


Blizzard has already developed technology to telepathically link our minds with theirs so they can rule us after the world ends just like they rule us via WoW now.


If it wasn't for you meddling kids, we would have pulled it off too!

That's just new movies released starting in 2016 (when the First Run contract with Starz expires). Current catalog is going to be made available shortly.

The Mayans didn't have leap years....


Or predict the end of the world, it's a myth.. their calendar ends.. why? Because it cycles over.. what's the point of doing the same work.. it should be OBVIOUS the calendar starts over, and they call these people "Doctors of Science". Whatever.


I guess they couldn't science up a way to defeat the Spainards.

The best days of the Mayans were already over before the Spaniards showed up. It was the Incans and Aztecs (still ascending) who were cut off in their prime.

EDIT: I'll also point out that they fought off the Spaniards much longer than the others, and are still a surviving ethnic race.

Let's see if the world ends first and then if it does, we can discuss options. ;)
I hereby accept your offer. By reading this post, you are now contractually bound to pay me $1000 after December 21 2012 and no later than December 25 2012.


Only if and when the world ends though ...
