The sign of the end of time will be when GL4x4 goes down. CC may say its just for some type of upgrade, but the true believers will know the end is near.

Who's to say it didn't? maybe its just a slow moving event and we haven't seen the leading edge yet?

If I were a terrorist I'd be planning some sort of activity on the 21st because even something minor is going to set the world in a panic.

I sure hope the people we waste our tax dollars on are already considering that problem...

The Mayans called it as the winter solstace, not Dec 21st....They didn't use the same calendar as us. The solstace just happens to land on Dec 21, so that's the date that's referenced according to our calendar. Don't believe everything you read on the internet.....except this

Sadly I am reading this which means the storm didn't hit here, we didn't loose power, my computer hasn't fried, and so I don't get to go home early.
