Yes, so you might as well give me all of that money. It'll be useless in another year, right?

Who cares. Nothing we can do about it but enjoy the ride.

It might but it won't be because the Mayan calendar rolls over. (The world doesn't end every night when the clock goes from 23:59:59 to 0:00:00, does it?)

Well, sometimes. But rarely more often that every fifth Tuesday.

@baqui63: Wait, so is this going to be like the Y2k thing where everyone will be furiously rewriting the worlds source code because of some shoddy development and abbreviations with the date, or more like when I have to reset my VCR clock and no man or women still alive and figure it out without a few hours of frustration.

vote-for13vote-against

no, because my outlook calendar goes way beyond 2012.

outlook > mayans

vote-for6vote-against

no

I believe that calendar about as much as I believe in ghosts, the tooth fairy, and anything a politician has to say.

@ecriscit:

I get the politicians and ghosts, but the tooth fairy?!! How could you not believe?

@baqui63: A VCR is like a sequential read/write DVR that uses magnetic material in a long strand instead of random access magnetic platters. The VCR had swappable cartridges that you could keep in your library taking up lots of space in your basement. It stored videos in an analog format so the video quality was worse than digital DVD or Bluray.

If you had more than one movie recorded on a cartridge, you could fast forward to the spot where the second movie began. It would only take about 15 minutes or so to find the beginning of the movie. This is unlike the crappy DVR's menu system to pick which pre-recorded movie you want to watch.

Both my house and car will be paid for in 2012. If that doesn't bring on the end of the world, I don't know what will.

@jsimsace: Of course it was sarcastic. Everyone knows what a VCR is so I came up with a definition I thought would be humorous.

vote-for6vote-against

but of course! and then all the good people (who are really bad but just don't let anyone know that) are going to get HUGE (and i mean HUGE) mansions in the sky and streets paved in gold, and depending on which book you believe, you may even get some virgins! holy mary!! i'm out though because i did bad things and told everybody about them (and i mean everybody!!) - oh well, never liked gold anyhow and what the hell would i do with a bunch of virgins???

I hope not. I don't think I'll be done by then.

@cengland0: Oh so that's what those things in my basement are. Glad I didn't throw them away.

(Thanks. Not sure which was funnier, your original reply or @jsimsace's pointing out that I was kidding.)

vote-for6vote-against

Good news, I just heard that the Mayans are coming out with a new calendar next month. This one has funnier pictures too, perfect for the cubicle.

vote-for6vote-against

No, because nothing can stop repaying a student loan, nothing.

@gretchena: "what the hell would i do with a bunch of virgins???"

I can think of about 300 things. all of which rhyme with techs

@pickypickypicky: I bet that a giant calendar dial carve out of granite would look nice in my cubicle. I just have to solve the "it's bigger than my cubicle" problem
