The End of The World in 2012 - What Will You Be Doing?

Updated on June 27, 2008

The End Of The World As We Know It?

The Mayans, Nostradamus, and more importantly, The X-Files have predicted that the world will end on 21st December 2012. If you want real precision in that the hour is 11:11 (it might be am or pm depending on the source). Taking into account timezones that means that in Eastern Australia we'd better start being concerned on December 22, but why quibble about pedantic details?

A lot of people out there (well maybe just a few, but a lot sounds better, doesn't it?) are preparing in advance for The End of Everything...or at least a case of a bad sunburn when the sunspots get bad that day causing a massive solar wind, or was that a volcanic eruption... I can never remember the exact details. Anyway, the average person with their busy life really doesn't have the time to prepare caches of food, and build that mountain retreat just in case. We'll be the ones winging it.

If you are one of those people who decide to take the laissez-faire approach to the end of everything (maybe even time itself) then here are a few suggestions to make the end of the world an event you'll never forget.

1. Relax, You Already Have Enough Food

It's the Holiday Season in a lot of religions. You know what that means. Food, more food and then a little bit more food to go with that food. Let's face it, we'll all be stuffed like turkeys, and know that there are more celebrations to come. Your cupboards and fridges will be stuffed to the gills.

I would suggest doing your food shopping a little earlier. If you can relax and get someone else to do it. After all, you're already on the Internet so use it to your advantage. Get somebody else to sort and deliver your End of the World supplies. If the world doesn't end you'll still have more than enough edibles to see you through to the next year, age, or whatever.

Get some extra firewood in case the world does end, or cook your meal on the BBQ grill instead. It'll be a novel way to spend the holidays anyway.

2. Get Ready To Play a Neat Party Trick or Two

It'll be that time of the year. Everyone will be at parties (Or hiding, but those people won't be fun anyway). This will be your chance to impress and distract them from the end of the world at the same time. The great thing is that you'll have years to prepare.

One of the predictions is that the poles will reverse. Now just imagine how you can use this piece of inside information to your advantage!

  1. Get a compass, a big one would be better.
  2. Just before the poles reverse, gather everyone around. (I'm sure by then they'll have a precise time, they did in 2000 and that went swimmingly)
  3. Tell them all that you are going to make North become South.
  4. Watch smugly as they all look at you skeptically.

  5. Remember here to show them that you have no magnets on you. This may require a strip-tease, if so make sure you've been to the gym at least a few days in the last week.
  6. Wave the compass in front of them.
  7. Watch their awe as the needle moves. They'll be so enthralled that the end of the world will go unnoticed.
  8. Put your clothes back on. It might be a little chilly after the power goes off.

See? There's always ways to use these small and not so small events to show off to a larger audience. Your guests will be glad for the distraction at such a dire time.

3. Spend Like There's No Tomorrow

One of the great things about the world ending is that you won't have to worry about paying the bills any more. Just think of the possibilities! You have a date to work with and everything.

Go on a spending spree. In fact, why stop at one credit card? Get a few more. Spend them up to the limit, too. Get all your cash out of the bank and spend that too. Have you always wanted that fancy car? Have you always wanted to live the Good Life, just like you see in all those work at home sales pages on the web? Who says there has to be financial pain?

Just imagine the look of surprise on your friends and family's faces when you give them everything they've always wanted. Just imagine the look of envy when they see your car and new house on the beach (it won't matter at all when the sea rises and it gets flooded -- maybe you could plan a little ahead here and get the house on stilts).

The key here is to spend up big, like it doesn't matter at all. There won't be a tomorrow to worry about anyway.

2012 Is Just Around The Corner

Long range plans can be a real bore. Let's face it, most people can't decide what they want to wear to work in the morning. Planning for the end of the world is just Too Big for us mere mortals. If this is you then relax and enjoy the end of the world. Who knows, maybe Douglas Adams was right and the Vogons will demolish the whole planet for an interstellar bypass.

The end of the world will be an event that nobody will forget. Have a great time and remember to wear a very fetching party hat., and enjoy the fireworks.

    The Global Warming Conspiracy

    July 3, 1983

    The real reason for global warming is the earth’s orbit around the sun is slowly decaying, and the earth elliptical orbit around the sun is shrinking. People take the earth’s magnetic field for granted, because it’s invisible, and silent, but the earth’s magnetic field keeps the earth at a safe distance from the sun, and the moon. The high temperature in the earth’s core (the earth’s engine) generates earth’s magnetic, and gravitational fields. The earth’s fuel system is referred to as crude oil, and natural gas wells. They are actually self pressurizing fuel cells, and crude oil, and natural gas are the earth’s fuel. The oil company’s crude oil extraction process compromises the earth’s fuel system, and shut off fuel to the earth’s outer core, by releasing pressure out of these oil, and gas wells. Under normal conditions the outer core stays at a constant temperature between 5000 to 7000 degrees celsius, and the pressure in the outer core, lower mantle, and in oil wells stays at tens of thousands of pounds per square inch. The pressure in an oil well forces the oil, and natural gas into the outer core, and is ignited long before it reaches the outer core, and enters the lower mantle, and outer core as flames, heat, and pressure.

    The earth’s core is being fuel starved, and the core is slowly cooling. As the core cools the earth’s magnetic field will weakens, and the earth will be pulled closer to the sun. The high temperature in the earth’s core is not sustained by decaying nuclear material, or by a dynamo process. The radiation would escape during volcanic eruptions. No radiation has ever been detected during, or after a volcanic episode. Only crude oil, and natural gas by-products, such as the great pressures, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide gases, etc. The materials, and gases ejected from volcanoes originate from the lower mantle, and outer core region of the planet. Reference: Kenneth A. McGee, and Terrence M. Gerlach 1995/ Volcanic Gas: USGS Open files report -95-85, 2p.

    The only way to reverse global warming is for the oil companies to re-pressurize the earth’s fuel systems. One way this can be accomplished is by igniting the methane gas in the fuel system. The ignited gas will expand, and create the pressure need to force the remaining crude oil, and natural gas into the outer core, and it will take many decades to reheat the core to normal temperatures. Crude oil, and methane gas was not created to fuel our industries, or automobiles. It was created to fuel this planet. Crude oil is the life blood of this planet.

    Global warming has nothing to do with a hole in the ozone, Co2 gases, methane gases, the green house effect, sun flares, or the sun going nova. Tens of thousands of scientist believe the green house gas theory is false, this should be a cause for an alarm. Something is going wrong with the earth’s orbit. The events below are not separate events they are all part of earth’s orbital decay. The events below were reported by NASA/ Goddard Space Flight Center, NOAA, USGS, and the American Astronomical Society, etc.

    1. The earth is moving away from the moon.

    2. The rotation of the earth is slowing down.

    3. The earth is shifting on its axis.

    4. Twelve o’clock noon use to be the hot part of the day, now three o’clock is the hottest part of the day.

    5. The earth is wobbling on it axis.

    6. The earth is developing a breach in its magnetic field.

    7. Both polar ice caps are being melted, one at a time, during each polar ice cap’s summer season, and the oceans are rising.

    The sun is millions of times larger, than the earth. As the earth moves closer to the sun, its radiance will continue to spread, and began to warm areas of the planet that are in their winter season. Areas near the equator will be affected first. Areas near latitudes 29 degrees north, and south will experience higher, than normal temperatures during the winter, and it will began to get cold later in the season in these regions. These regions are where global warming should be monitored, first. The progression of the earth decaying orbit should be measured by the temperature in winter. The warmer, and/ or sunnier it gets the worse earth's orbit is decaying, and the closer the earth is moving towards the sun. As the earth moves closer to the sun its irradiance will spread toward both hemisphere’s polar ice caps, starting from the equator, during the winter season. In the future there will be no more winters, because the sun’s irradiance will eventually spread, and covered both hemispheres simultaneously, while the hemisphere that’s in its summer season will experience extreme high temperatures. It’s December 16, 2010 the sun is over the southern hemisphere. Houston, Texas is in the northern hemisphere, and the winters days are getting sunnier, and warmer, and the cold weather is setting in later into the season. What is occurring in Houston, Texas will manifest in the rest of the world, in the future. Areas above latitude 29 degrees north, and south are now experiencing winter tornadoes, this is highly unusual. It should be too cold for the development of tornadoes, during the winter months. I have a few questions to ask of you green house gas theorists

    1. What does sunny, and/ or warm winter days have to do with green house gases? There shouldn’t be enough irradiance from the sun for any green house gases to trap, during the winter months. Weather reporters in Houston are saying 61 degrees is normal. I grow up in Houston the normal temperature in Houston in winter averages in the 40's, to low 50's, and it was never sunny, and warm. There is a conspiracy to deceive the public by the US government, and the oil companies.

    2. Why on a hot day is the sun irradiance higher, than the ambient temperature? The green house gas effect is suppose to causes the ambient temperature (the air around us) to be higher, than the sun irradiance, but if you stand under a shade tree the ambient temperature drops, move from under the shade tree into the sun’s irradiance the temperature rises. In an actual green house, or an automobile with the windows up the ambient temperature is higher, than the sun’s irradiance shining into the green house. This proves green house gases are not the cause for global warming.

    3. Why in the early 20th century, during the industrial revolution in America, and Europe, wasn’t there a recorded dramatic spike in temperature? The north east region of America was referred to as the rust belt. This region was heavily industrialized, and heavily saturated with Co2, and methane gases. There were high numbers of respiratory cases, and stick smog, but there was no dramatic spike in temperature in America, or Europe. In the early 20th century scientists believed the earth was headed toward another ice age, due to the harsh winter weather, and below normal temperatures in summer. Global warming wasn’t an issue, until the latter part of the 20th century, in spite of all the air pollution in the early 20th century. Global warming should have been an issue in the early 20th century in the rust belt region, if green house gases are responsible for global warming. The industrial activity in the rust belt has ended, green house gases has been dramatically reduced, but the temperature in this area is still increasing, why?.

    4. Television, radio, or news paper weather reports never mention the temperature of the sun’s radiance? Generally the temperature of the sun’s radiance is higher, than the ambient temperature, and the temperature of the ocean. Meteorologists, and green house gas theorist blame high pressure, el-nino, the air flow off the Gulf of Mexico for hot weather, these are all, just peripheral conditions. They blame hot weather on everything, but the main cause, and that’s the increasing temperature of sun’s irradiance. Notice they don’t even try to differentiate between temperature of th

    Whether something happens in 2012 or not; one thing that can't be ignored is this world cannot continue to sustain itself much longer as population continues to increase substantianlly. The UN and the WHO have said that by 2050; the world population is estimated to be about 9.7 billion people. This being a conservative estimate, the UN and WHO have already gone on record and said that we don't have enough food and water for the 6.7 billion people in the world today. With greed, deforestation, contamination and the loss or decline of major staples, it's fair to say that something has to give in the near future. The world and it's resources are at it's limit; and either it gives or we do. Being the privleged ones from developed countries that live with the illusion there's plenty, we don't like to acknowledge or admit that the world's natural resources are desecrated. Even with close to a billion people starving everyday; it's still expected that the population within the next 40 years will reach a point in which survival will become difficult unless you're the extremely wealthly. Yeah, believe in the status quo; but the truth is, all of us will be impacted and threatened with the reality of what is unfolding in the world today. I'm not a church going person; I do believe in a creator/god, and I can only hope that humanity can be saved or saves itself. We've become a virus upon this world; that if not cured, we will end up destoying ourselves and our home. There are some truths to 2012; and you would have to be a fool if you didn't acknowledge that governments keep secrets from their citizens.(WMD's, 9/11, Bin Laden, Kidnapping, Egypt etc etc..the list goes on and on) You can't trust the government, the military, the church or the media. Institutions such as these are full of corrupt powerful people that have their best interests in mind not yours. Their interest is to protect their wealth and control; so if there was something to happen in 2012, don't expect that they would share it with the general public. Information is power; and power is control!

    Your first mistake was not reading the tag or perhaps the article itself, which was clearly humour. Instead you decided to use this hub as a forum to talk about your theories on why the world was about to be taken over by unseen forces. Then you called me. and I quote, "your attitude about crisis seems to be the kind the new world order types want,us to do". So, yes, a little paranoia there, unless you can prove the claim of a New World Order. In my experience, though, even if you have facts people won't believe you. Especially if the media has whipped an issue up to a frenzy. I direct you to Y2K. Anyone with the facts was unworried.

    Perhaps you could write a hub and get it all out of your system.

    When you say lighten up,do you mean live for today for tommorrow will take care of itself?

    Paranoia? Is it paranoia to see the economy being turned upside down?

    that social security is quickly being a thing of the past?

    that the future of elderly and young workers looking grim,

    unless something more positve is done to improve the


    that people are losing their homes to unscrupulou lending?

    Paranoia doesn't lead to action, it leads to fear and paralysis. If you believe that there is something wrong then be part of the solution. Calling me names reflects on you. It's water of a duck's back to me.

    Lighten up, dude.

    Patty, I'm glad I wasn't there to see that! I didn't panic, because I had no reason to. You see, the Stock Exchange here in Australia required all listed companies to check and report on compliance. I was one of the people that did the compliance. By the end of it I had hard facts and not speculation. Facts are always better to work with IMO. *G*

    your attitude about crisis seems to be the kind the new world order types want,us to do. Go along to get along.I know what's going on.

    When it comes to community birds of a feather flock together as they say.I hear that some congressmen is pushing a bill that would make it illeagal to grow your own food.

    I asssume that the people behind it are afraid that people will stop buying as much food at the stores.You can be sure there is a plan in the works.You may not like it though.

    As I understand it the powers that be,burgerbuilders,tri-lateral commisson,CFR consul on foreign relations,World Bank,IMF international monetary fund,the U.N unitednations,The Hague The World Court all want things to under their control.they want less people ,no middle class,only Rich and poor.they know the Rich are on their side for the most part,and they could care less what the poor think.They make money off the poor,food clothing,the section 8 payments used to house the poor,even the prisons are privately owned now.Talk about self-interest.The one thing they don't want is for everyone going off to live off the land like they did a hundred years ago.They can control people better in urban areas.You know people ,they tend to need a kick in the butt to realise what's really going on.If your smart you'll all take his advise and prepare to live a greener life.Hopefully a happy one too.

    I do wonder where this particular recession is heading, but I suppose here in Australia, we've managed to skirt the worst of it, so far anyway. It won't last. The Great Depression was felt very badly here due to our mainly agrarian economy at the time and that memory has not faded. I think that's the reason we are desperately trying to hold on. With the financial markets of the world being so intermeshed I don't think it'll last, though.

    I'm not an economist, so I don't know the answers, or even how to effectively evaluate what we are being told, and not told for that matter. Planning ahead is a good move in any case. But in a positive manner. One thing that did amaze me was that the Great Depression worsened because consumer spending dropped by 10% after the crash. The stock market was back up to former levels in under a year, but no one was spending. It was consumer confidence in the system that made things worse. I'm not saying to spend or anything like that, but it's a reminder of how fragile the world economy as we know it is. We need a better system. Not sure what that is, but all it needs is someone with a good idea, and someone else in authority to believe in it. I know, I'm an optimist at heart (or very naive)

    I like the humor. I tend to laugh about a crisis as well. I'm starting to flow with it. Why think about how bad it could get at the expense of the moment. Peter Schiff knows what's up with our economy and that's way more important that misinterpreted prophecy right now.

    Sorry to be a little off topic, but do you guys realize that this economy that we're used to is breaking down? What it means is debatable but you won't be able to go on living life as usual. Forget about 2012. This year it's only going to get worse and next year is going to suck if you are trying to live life as usual. New Years Parties might be a good idea to make light of it and spend quality time with friends and family, but if you're not ready for changes you will soon be adjusting. For me it's a good time to focus on the finer things in life like meeting new people and learning about community.

    There's nothing to get ready for. But we are on a slippery slope right now financially. Enjoy life to the fullest, but it doesn't have to go up in smoke. Whatever partying you want to do, I would suggest getting it in right now this year. I don't know what the end of the world is, but I know a runnaway train when I see one and those who are running our global economy are about to ghost it off a hill into a deep ditch. I'm sure there's a new world backup plan in the works, like a new money system, but I 'd rather just stick with good ol' livin off the land and working together. The end of the world? Not exactly, but deffinitely a rude awakening to those who fear change. Just don't be so quick to sign up for governent aid when it get's rough out there. You're much better off just chipping in with some friends and getting a spot in the country to retreat to when the unemployment rate gets up around 50% and crime becomes a daily nuscance in the city or runaway inflation makes it hard to buy gas and food. It has happened in many third world countries and it will most likely happen here within the next couple years.

    By the way, if the economy collapses in our large and complex country, there will likely be a breakdown of many government systems and a sketchy emergency response agenda forcing Obama to call on the UN to summon support from around the world to help manage the problem areas. Occupation by the UN will put a damper on any chances of the US ever being anything like the country we know now. So yeah, whatever your plans for 2012, get it in now and wait for things to get serious. Then go on with your life in a manner more consistant with reality in the new "green" economy.

    "The End of the World" has been interpreted in a couple of different ways, by many people. Some think that, like above, the world, or the Universe itself, will be 'blinked out of existence'. Others think of it in biblical terms, like Noah and his Menagerie, or the Rapture. But there's another school of thought out there, as well. There are those who believe that the 'end of the world' is just the next step in evolution, or society, or whatever, and it will be a new 'Age of Enlightenment'. Personally, I'm not picking sides. What will happen will happen, and whether or not you're prepared for it doesn't matter in the least, regardless of your point of view.

    Also, many times, things like this 'end of the world' thing end up being talked about and talked about and talked about, and someone decides to just end all the endless inane babble and go and carry out the prophecy as he/she interprets it, as best they can, making the 'prophecy' come true, when, most times, if they hadn't done anything, nothing at all wouldn't happen. Of course, THOSE events are typically pretty small events that don't actually affect the course of the Universe as a whole, but instead only affect small areas of the world. But, as some would say, maybe that's what the prophecy was talking about happening in the first place. It's all subject to interpretation and, like opinions, everyone has an interpretation, and not all of them are ever the same. So why does everyone worry about something that may or may not come to pass, and that they probably won't have any control over at all? Go about your lives, and if nothing happens, you'll end up being better off for it in the long run.

    My 2 cents. :)

    Oh yes. The last episode "The Truth" is based on Mulder breaking into a government installation and finding out the invasion date, and that's it.

    I'm pretty sure it'll all end up like the Milennium Bug did. But, then again, no one would believe me then that there was no cause for alarm. :-)

    Hi Hovalis. Please allow me to share a view with you.

    A prophesy may be generally seen as a single "alternate reality" that exists alongside an uncountable number of other similar "alternate realities", all of which originate from one unique point of "time".

    To better understand this unproven theory, we can use the analogy of a person reaching a point in his\her life where he\she has to choose what next to do. This point in "time" is the origin from which "alternate realities" are theorized to branch out from.

    A prophesy can be percieved to be the "alternate reality" with the highest probability of occurring.

    If too many people believe in the occurrance of a future event, no matter how improbable that event may seem, then the phenomena of "Self-Fulfilling Prophesy" could cause that event to materialize.

    Thank you for bringing up this controversial topic for us to ponder upon.

    For the 2000 apocolypse I was all dressed up with no where to go! What a disappointment that one was. I guess they'll get it right eventually. :-)

    I can't wait.

    I hope it's not lame like the year 2000 apocalypse was.

    At least the End of the World will help thin down the crowds a bit. ;-)

    I'll probably be trying to get my Christmas shopping done when the world ends:-)

    Hee! There's just no way of knowing. I'm trying to remember off the top of my head about carvings in the Great Pyramid at Giza, and the only thing I can remember is about the grafitti on the top of the roof in the King's Chamber. I should look it up.

    More than likely I'll be working, too. Although that close to Christmas I could already be on Christmas Holidays, it being summer down here. :-)

    Hmmm. There is somewhere inside a passage in the Great Pyramid of Gizeh a cryptic timeline that goes on from 2012 a few inches with no further events and then drops off to nowhere. In the mid-1960s some researchers felt that this meant that 2020 would be the final year. Maybe the one that was hewing out the timeline on the rock wall just died and was not replaced. -- Just like some of our work places today. :) LOL I'll be working in 2012.

    I'm not big on prophesy wherever it is found, whether it be in a religious text or the horoscope. I believe the world we live in is affected by what we do in the here and now, and that helps determine a future course. There are things we can change, and there are things ike earthquakes and cyclones that we have no control over. It's how we deal with it that matters. :-)

    Good news is, the end of the world is also interpreted bibically "the world we know." Like the story of Noah and the ark. They said the waters flooded the whole world really meant "flooded they're world" as far as they could see. Are world is in need of change and who's to say a really big change couldn't happen in our world around that time? A discovery that profoundly changes people for the better? I guess we'll see.

    I am extremely skeptical as well. I don't know how many people told me that they thought the Y2K bug would bring down civilisation as we know it, and I disagreed. They had heresay and I had proof - I'd been doing compliance on it for the company I worked for at the time. I had the facts. I had a very good idea how many pieces of machinery were likely to go down.

    I had my tongue firmly planted in my cheek when I wrote this, believe me. :-)

    Extremely skeptical.

    In my short life I have known by name and face five people who have said the same words.

    None of them had the grace to admit they were incorrect.

    They changed the dates.

    Sorry I do not believe this.

    Thank you for letting me have two pennies worth.
