So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Actually in a real "end of days" situation the rich die

simple really
the Rich head for their bunkers/arks/escape pods
the servants are already there with their families and pet hamster
the rich get locked out

also the rich tend not to have done military service (or did it in the Air national guard or local version there of) and thus have no survival skills

Public Notice and Best Wishes:

As I'm sure all of you know, and Brandon eluded to, with this year's Winter Solstice at 3:12am PST "tonight" (technically tomorrow morning), we will all be saying good bye to the old 13th B'ak'tun and hello to the infant 14th B'ak'tun. Previous Mayan custom would have involved ritualisitc blood sacrifice and other savor acts to complete the time change, but I wanted you all to rest assurred that thanks to common industry standards in today's modern technology, your clocks and computers will all sync over to the new Long Calendar with little-to-no effort on your part.

I hope you all enjoy whatever traditional orgies or pok'a'tok tournaments you feel are necessary to celebrate and ring in your new B'ak'tun. I wish you the happiest of thoughts and dreams for you to party like it's 12.19.19.17.19!

Happy Holidays,
H.Vetinari

I have it on good authority that Japan and the rest of the world that has already hit 12/21/12 is still there and not fallen into the nearest ocean.

Can't remember where the quote came from (Might be "Kentucky Fried Movie") but I remember the line

"The World will end at 10pm, Film at 11!"

I believe the current bak'tun ends at the exact moment of winter solstice. 5:11 a.m. CST where I am.

Porthos is not amused.

It's some cyclical phenomenon that involves the absense of daylight, whatever daylight is.

So if my calculations are correct, it should happen around about n.... *Forum reply ends abruptly by a undiscribed phenomena, or Woody Valley got assimulated by the Borg. Take your pick, doesn't worry me*
