Default The World Ends Friday

End of the Mayan calendar. Any bets on how it will happen?

A large bolide impact would be pretty cool, but the light show from a gamma ray burst, provided it hits the other side of the world, might be spectacular.

If movies are anything to go by then it would be wise to stay away from all iconic buildings and monuments.

I am still more likely to be killed by a Spider in the Australian summer than by end of the World on Friday.

Australia never gets a mention in any of those 'doomsday' movies.

I'm thinking Yellowstone erupts and takes most of the US with it, California cracks off and falls into the sea, Europe and Russia freeze over and they fall into a second ice age, Robots take over Japan and spread out to the other Asian countries, Africa floods and the floods stretch into the other eastern hemisphere continents, meteors destroy South America, Austraila gets attacked by mutant animals. And any other place I didn't mention or for anybody that survives...I'm thinking zombies.
