Dec. 21st 2012: End of the World

Join us Dec. 21st, 2012

for

The End of the World Party, as we wait out the day

at

Daily P.Au.L

And see if anything happens...

Report all weirdness here.

Although more than likely, we'll all probably still be checking the front page of Daily P.Au.L even after the world ends.

Together for the End, or the Beginning, or maybe just a laugh like Y2K.

So what do you guys *really* think is going to happen?

What does it mean, Mike?

So the calendar resets. Of course it has significance. Just like the time identifiers "January" or "July" or "noon" or "4:20" have. We just don't have a context for what the significance really is. After all, it only happens once every 25,000 years. Our recorded history lasts only about 5,000 years or so, if you include Chinese records. What happened before then is basically a mystery, though legend survives, if not written text.

Atlantis.

My feeling is that we've been here before, and we just keep going around, and around. Hit reset and begin again. I don't think the end will come sudden, but the end will come for the human race. And then it, or something else, will start up again...

Can we thread the needle, and make it out, so we don't have to go through it all again? Like Neo did, in the third Matrix?

well

We do know some history pre-5000 BC. An asteroid did not kill the dinosaurs. They simply discovered politics and news media. The DNN (Dino News Network) dictated the Dino societal mood swings for a good number of years. Then their Fair and Balanced savior arrived and carnivores and herbivores could finally have a conservative news outlet. Little did they know, Bernankesaurus was plotting against them all along. The carnivores were bringing dino society down but alas, T-Romney was going to save the herbivores. Then a giant Paulroid gave them all a reality check and shattered the reign of the fat greedy and corrupt reptiles.

I wish I could type enough right now to tell you.

But I told her (when she told me) that I didn't feel like typing anymore:

I know how it is ;-)

Let me count the cards:

1. Black hole in the background
2. The whole page cascading down like an avalance
3. The whole page falling apart, bit by bit, like the webpage has leprosy.
4. Earthquake
5. Items on the page moving around randomly, in such a way you feel like you're hallucinating, or you like you just saw a mouse run by (I saw a mouse in my apartment. Freaky. I think it may have even come visit me on my bed. Unless I dreamed it. It was such a vivid dream, I don't know. It was like I was awake, but I can't be sure. Was there really a mouse on my pillow? Did it really run off across the mattress when I jerked up out of bed? I'm sure that wasn't a dream, but once I had a dream about my dead dog, who came to visit me, and I was positive that was not a dream, either. The only problem was, she came to visit me, so it had to have been a dream, right? Deductive logic says its a dream when all other systems say, "That was real."). Wow - that's the free association that your programming started. It started an avalanche of thoughts.

Five. I count five cards so far.

Mike, you're right - it is funny

People have a sticks up their asses - including me. Sometimes the proper response is just to cut loose a little. Being bound up so tight never helped anyone.

But something feels really terrible about what just happened. He really could have had it if he wanted it; He really just didn't want it. But who could blame him? I wouldn't want that job either.

Let me just come out and say it: President of the United States is a terrible job. Basically, you become responsible for everything - whether it has anything to do with you or not. Obama is responsible for kids getting killed by random shooters. He's 'responsible' for what the stock market does, and the unemployment rate, and the entire freaking nation's response to global warming. And yet he has no control over any of it. What a terrible predicament to be in - it would be, at least for me (and somewhat is).

But if you don't really want the job, it seems a little dishonest to run. I guess that is the very root of the problem, the source of the niggling anxiety. Yeah, there's a politician under there. As much as no one wants to believe it.

If you don't really want the job, it seems a little dishonest to run. And he does joke about it. "There is the danger I could get elected." "I don't know if I'm running for the presidency or running from it."

He telegraphed it the whole time. Clear in retrospect, not so much in prospect. Not when all that emotion is clouding the vision. It was like being in love. That dreamy, foggy feeling of floating - floating on a dream. What a beautiful dream. Ron Paul was going to solve all our problems with a magic wand.

Ha ha ha. * Pail of cold water hits the face * Time to wake up from your dream. No one is here to save us. Reminds me of Wonderwall.

Sticks?!

I have a thing called cauda equina syndrome! It makes me feel like something is stuck up my butt! If people are feeling that, I guarantee you, they will not be very pleasant. Without adequate pain medication, I can be real hard to get along with. Ironically, I was a pain management doctor, in the past. Now, I have a difficult time getting the discomfort treated!

I lived and practiced in a town near the one that made the DP, today, Paragould, AR. The cops are really getting to the point of being real power mongers. Their attitudes, often are used to elevate the situation into something it need not be. They really don't want to do that to me, now, since I am grouchy all the time. They might have to pistol whip me into submission! I'm disabled, so I am damn sure not going to instigate any action against a cop!

You should make sure

that none of the local police are missing a billy club.

If not us than who?

Nice job Jon

This one reminds me of that guy at the beginning of A Scanner Darkly - the guy with the bugs all over him. I see them too, these bugs on the screen. Moving - moving. Moving around. Are they really there?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pzLimbUd44

Nope. He's hallucinating. He's so far gone out of this world.

Am I hallucinating? Nope. I'm pretty sure shit is moving all over the screen. On some pageloads. Except those other times when the big black hole picture is back there. Did Mike choose that photo? Good one.

I think of this as drawing cards from a deck. Each time I reload the page, there is a new card. Sometimes, nothing happens. Just like in real life.

I just saw the blue menu bar flash down here! But I've seen that happen before. It is like truly a ghost in the machine. And when I see it, I wonder if it is you back there, tweaking something. You are the ghost of the Daily Paul.

Anyway - so far, I think I've seen three cards from the deck. I'm just wondering how many cards there are total in the deck (there goes the blue menu bar again - flash! - like a bee. Are you still working on new cards for the deck?

Mike told me you had some stuff up your sleeve. I can't wait to see it. It is a delight and a treat for me to come to the site and see new things.

(Oh yeah, caught you. The blue bar comes down to play when I hit Delete - but only when delete erases a linebreak, not just a single character). Is that you? There is some complicated stuff going on back here - that I know. The funny thing is, it isn't complicated for you, which is something I find amazing. You're like a prodigy.

Simply the end of the calendar

According to the Bible the war will be for many years that will climax with the last trumpet. Something of a lesser degree may happen but not likely to take very many if any lives with it. I think it was simply the end of their calendar. From my study of the Mayans their religion isn't something I would follow. The one most rejected is the most accurate and my favorite.

Not even necessairly the end of their calendar

From what I understand they looked at time as circular not something that just ends. So yeah, that calendar ends, and RESTARTS!!!!! I think people might be forgetting that last part!

Whoa!

That was freaky. Stuff is getting freaky around here...

I doubt it is going to happen

I doubt it is going to happen but who knows for sure. No doubt people laughed at Noah when he built the Ark. The wise people are always ready to leave this earth on a moments notice.

Your right....

I have left several times!! ;)

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Is this supposed to happen at midnight?

on Thursday or will we have time to chill on Fri also? Do the Mayans tell us that, does anyone know?

If it is midnight, *which* midnight?

!

Y2K all over again...

A signature used to be here!

jrd3820's picture

Well, I was thinking....

midnight 01 so as soon as it officially turns Friday. However, midnight exactly on Friday night might make sense too. Then there is the time zone thing... Which time zone? Sigh, the Mayans really could have been more precise in their predictions.

My mom and I agreed on that....

like you said, just in case.... lol.

Max 6.3 Quake

In Southern California. No big deal have them all the time you say. Not 200 miles out in the pacific...nothing significant (above 6.0) in 40 years. I think the seven headed beast just exploded from the bedrock of the ocean is my guess.

Maybe just Maybe

We can all pray that the ones who are against liberty drink the Kool-Aide and this world can be a better place on 12-22-12

LOL!!!
