"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Is it over? I was hoping I could sleep through it, so I was wondering if I should go back to bed.
Man, that John Cusak's full of shit......
I guess we dodged that bullet. Damn. Now I have to go Christmas shopping.
Slight false alarm! Everyone back to bed!
Back to bed? What are you, a slacker?
This the end, beautiful friend. Oh wait it's 6:51, my bad. I guess I have to work today now.
WORST. MAYAN. CALENDAR. EVER.
I am from Aztec descent, but if the world ends I love you all and my last thoughts will be of that Michigan helmet.....and my wife, kids n stuff. Go Blue, too. last words.
I KNEW I SHOULDN'T HAVE SOLD ALL MY POSSESSIONS EXCEPT MY INTERNET PROVIDING DEVICE WHICH IS HOW I'M COMMUNICATING THIS TO YOU
here's how it actually went
Mayan guy: Alright, now to put December 22 on the calen....OH NOES!!! THE SPANISH, WHICH I SOMEHOW KNOW ABOUT, ARE HERE WITH....SMALL POX OR SOMETHING!!!
I guess the Spanish Oh Noes play was as deathly effective as the QB oh noes Denard used to run.
and I didn't even get a snow day today from this so called Blizzard
Two snow days in a row for my kids - and therefore me - in the greater Madison, WI metro region. We had ourselves a nice little blizzard. I might add a nice little blizzard NOT PREDICTED BY THE MAYANS!
Later in the day, where the Mayan head priest takes full responsibility?
He'll come out and ask why everyone looks so glum and tell them to smile.
He came out in a cute little bow tie, but when asked if they considered firing the actual creator of the calendar, he responded...."I hope he doesn't fire me."
No apocalypse? Don't be too disappointed: there will undoubtedly be another prediction of the end of the world within the next year. My guess, though, is that when the end comes, no one predicts it, but it comes like a thief in the night.
Have already said they miscalculated the Mayan end-of-the-world date. Now, it's sometime in 2015. You've got another couple of years to buy that real estate inside the French mountain.
Perhaps, but until there is a movie about it directed by Roland Emmerich, we shouldn't take it too seriously.
Did I miss it? Man seems like I miss everything.
You missed it. The world was destroyed and you're dead. Welcome to the afterlife. Good news, it's Sparty and Buckeye-free.
They're just in that other place.
You can head over to Amazon and get a year of ESPN Magazine/Insider for $5. Link
I would suggest immediately cancelling auto-renewal by going to the Subscription Manager as there's no guarantee you will be able to renew for the same price in 1 year.
Deal lasts until the 25th. Thought I would post it, especially since it's from Amazon and not some questionable online magazine site.
Hope is not a strategy.
Thanks for posting this, giving myself the gift of TomVH for xmas now.
dammit all, i was really counting on those mayans to come through for me... should've studied for my test last night
When I was a student, I used to think that if the world ended, it should happen just before I started studying for finals, not a day or two afterwards.
I'm going to be very disappointed if the world ends at 4:01pm. That means I will have spent the last hours of my life working. I was hoping it would take place while I was asleep. Who doesn't want to go out in there warm bed?
Quick, before you die, learn how to use their, there and they're. Sorry, couldn't resist one last grammar check before the apocalypse.
Well, as of now I'm pretty ecstatic that you're going to die.
This thread is full of all kinds of winning comments. I'm laughing my a-- off here.
We're zombies actually. The walking dead who love Michigan football.
The Mayans never predicted the end of the world today. Today is just the end of their 144,000 day calendar cycle. Another one would've started tomorrow. Today is essentially Mega New Years Eve to a Mayan, so if they were still around, they'd be celebrating, not panicking.
How many a-holes do you think did/said something really stupid because they actually believed this foolishness?
Like the 30-some Michigan schools that cancelled classes two days early because of concerns over the reaction to the Mayan prophecies??? They should all be fired.
On a related note, are all these apocalypse prepper reality shows going to have some post 12-21-2012 episodes that show these nutjobs looking sheepish and foolish for investing so much effort into their paranoia?
The Mayans were the original rick roll.
But since it is the solstice, I have had my yuzu bath. Maybe some whiskey (suntori time!) later.
