    We won the first nuclear war against Imperial Japan.

    And as we speak the jihadi of Iran are preparing to win a nuclear war in the Middle East.

    And the global jihadi are scouring the world looking for small nuclear weapons to let off in the cities of the USA and her allies.

    Even North Korea has staved off a second invasion by building and exploding nuclear weapons - a victory of sorts for an impoverished and pariah nation.

    The genie is out of the bottle and grants the wish of victory.

    It's millenarianism, a religious belief based around the end of a millennia.

    So around the year 1,000 AD rumours abounded of the end of the world and the Second Coming of Christ.

    And so around the year 2,000 AD we are once again excited and worried about the end of the world.

    Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

    ^Yes, I understand this. I don't buy it and I really don't care either way.

    PS:

    The chance that humans will become extinct in 2012 is approximatly: 1,1013215859030837004405286343612e-9%

    That's 0.0000000011013215859030837004405286343612 %
    unless one believes humans will ascend.

    or rather ascend or burn in hell. in which case, repent & cleanse yourself.

    i've also heard another theory, in which it won't be a catastrophic end, but rather a new step in evolution for humans. an evolutionary change in which ignorance will dissipate, and we are more in tune with our spiritual bodies. that would actually be the most interesting, and i would hope most likely 2012 scenario to play out. but idk.

    I don't think that any supernatural or cosmological events will destroy us during 2012. I think we will destroy ourselves because we think supernatural or cosmological events are going to destroy us. Or maybe we will destroy ourselves because we think we will destroy ourselves.

    I'm saddened by the fact that this probably won't actually happen.

    I don't want the multi-month deal, but i would like it to happen for 5 hours. That's tolerable to me on a personal level, and would be enough time to demonstrate how pathetically dependent we are on electronics as a species. Fucking everything up in only 5 hours makes a better point.

    I so want this. I know one should be careful what to ask for.
    But knocking out electronics worldwide for months, possibly years...
    It'll cull the population, hopefully.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
