A long, boring, nutty video on Canberra’s part in the Mayan Apocalypse

By johnboy - 17 December 2012 16

Perhaps knowing our weakness for a nutty conspiracy video James Macaron has directed our attention to his contribution to the genre.

Incidentally if you want to smack around the doom-mongers the War Nerd has a cool piece on the ongoing existence of the Mayans.

At first I thought I’d take us out with REM, but then I remembered this under-rated gem by U2:

If the Mayans were good at predicting the future, there’d still be Mayans.

Sorry, I lasted about three minutes. Does he mention the Axis apartments in Lyneham?

Since the day it was erected, I always suspected something was odd about that owl in Belconnen. Why would the national capital have such a public phallus? View 4:30 on. All makes sense now.

The keywords there are “and this includes your house” 🙂
You’d need to have more than $1,500 worth of sell-able stuff before I’d even consider it…

My house? OK, you can have the cardboard boxes and newspapers as well. Jeez you strike a tough deal.

So what time is the world supposed to end exactly?

according to the video the exact minute of the solstice is 10:12pm Canberra time. As verified if you go to solstice page on wikipedia that states the solstice time is 11:12am GMT

I found the video rather compelling. The author is not talking about the world ending either.

I personally want to make an offer to anyone who believes the world is going to end on Friday. I will purchase everything you own for $1,500 (go out and have a blast). Better still you can keep using said items right up to the moment the world ends or 22 Dec 2012, which ever comes first.

On 22 Dec however, if the world does not end, everything you own (and this includes your house) will become mine…

Do I have any takers?

You’re on.

Although the only things I actually own are some clothes I got from vinnies and half a bottle of rum.

$1500, I’m rich. muhahahaha.

I thought at first I may as well max out my credit card, and any others I can get before the end. Take up smoking again , and vodka mudshakes and kellogs for breaky. But can anyone guarentee it will happen ? I don’t wish to go back to my old habits , then have to wean off them again.

I hope I can fit my Friday workout in before the world ends. Actually, missing out a workout is the end of the world for me 😉

I don’t believe the world is going to end, but I’d love to take you up on your offer.

Probably not…just watch them all duck for cover (no pun intended)
