|Is the party really over?|
But all that said, today what we have to offer to you, and at no cost whatsoever, is a listing of what are the most important end of the world tips and scenarios according to a website called December212012.com (click here). It all comes down tomorrow they're saying, so I suspect you should probably read this stuff today because after that all bets are off. They also have a countdown clock, which is interesting. When I posted this there were around 20 hours left of our earthly existence, which means if you intended to call your mom before it all comes down you should do so soon. They also have 14,855 Facebook "likes," though I personally don't know what there is to "like" about the mass extinction of our species. But then again perhaps I'm missing the point.
Here are some of the useful "end of the world" tips and scenarios December2012.com is offering on this, the last full day of the Planet Earth.
2012 Something Is Going On! There are so many thing going on around the world that you may not be aware of. The main stream media only tells you what they have to and downplays the rest to prevent mass panic.
Have you heard about the increased solar storms that could take out our entire electric grid, or the 2012 DA14 asteroid that could destroy our entire planet? What about the strange sounds being heard all around the world, or the strange lights being seen in the sky? The media does report on natural disasters, but are they telling you about all the records being broken for natural disasters? Are you aware of all the birds falling from the sky for no apparent reason, and the fish dying by the hundreds of thousands? There are reports of blood red rivers, strange animal behaviors and so much more you just don’t know about.
I strongly urge you to watch the video below and remember, it’s not the medias job to keep you informed, but it’s your job to stay informed. Prepare yourself and your family for what they’re not telling you.
(Mod: To watch the video discussed above, click here. It has now received over 8 million hits on YouTube. If after watching this video you are convinced that you have to do something to prepare, the next three articles could be of use to you.)
How to prepare for a catastrophic event on 12/21/12: In case of a catastrophic event on December 21, 2012 I would like to supply a preparation guide to help get through in case of an emergency. There has obviously been a stronger buzz going around about this date that has not only been predicted, but also showing signs of scientific possibilities in recent years. The date is only 4 years away and it's never a good idea to wait until it's too late to start thinking of a game plan.
- Constantly pay attention to any natural disasters / changes to the world as we know it and take note of how much more effective these natural changes are becoming.
- Saving some extra cash is never a bad thing. Could it be a bit tough with today's economy? Absolutely. But if you create a mindset to save "X" amount on a weekly basis, you can easily accomplish that.
- Have a 1 - 2 month supply of water / non perishable food. This is especially essential in storm prone area's.
- First Aid Kit / Medicines. This is something that everybody should have at all times.
- Store a sleeping bag / blanket in the back of your vehicle. Even if you never have to use it, it is always better to have it and not use it than not have it and obviously not be able to use it.
- Being prepared is not a difficult task at hand. Once you do it, you are set. Spread the word to friends and family and help them in becoming a prepared member in society.
(Mod: Notice that the discussion about a catastrophic event and not the end of all life as we know it. In which case none of the above would be of much use.)
Los Angeles survival groups brace for Dec 21, 2012 and beyond: Inside a used RV that's anything but recreational and loaded with survival equipment, rain has leaked through a wooden overhead bin near a light fixture. A.B. remarks that he'll have to get that fixed, and time is running short.
It's now less than one month until his group's "ready" date - December 21, 2012, when the long-predicted doomsday event based on the Mayan long-form calendar could arrive. A Los Angeles-area survival group has actively recruited people with specific skills in the past few months, tying its disaster preparedness effort to Dec. 21.
The founder, A.B. (who asked to remain anonymous), doesn't necessarily believe the prediction, but he's certain that something will happen eventually. "There's so many different scenarios, there's so many things that could possibly go wrong," he said.
A member of the U.S. Armed Forces, A.B. and several others in the group have military experience that has taught them survival skills.
Preparing to survive a catastrophe has become its own culture, popularized by the cable show "Doomsday Preppers" and giving rise to the American Preppers Network, which offers tips and contacts to practice self-reliance during disasters.
When it all hits the fan - or SHTF - preppers usually have "bug-out" bags and locations ready to go, with means of survival such as food stores, water access and security measures.
There are numerous doomsday scenarios: powerful earthquakes, a super volcano at Yellowstone National Park, economic and social collapse, nuclear fallout or a solar storm that destroys satellites and electrical grids.
(Mod: Good advice, and if I were you I'd get to the supermarkets early today. There could be quite a rush on some of the essentials of life, which is why the next article is a must.)

(Mod: I'm not sure, but what I took away from watching the video is this guy is trying to sell you something. And since same day deliveries are not guaranteed here, I'd say it might be too late.)
December 21, 2012: NASA Scientist Says 25 Million Americans Stockpiling Guns, Machetes for Doomsday: December 21, 2012 may or may not be doomsday but apparently at least 25 million people think that there won't be a Christmas this year because of the Mayan apocalypse.
That's a pretty scary statistic considering that a good percentage of these people are probably hoarding guns and other weapons to protect themselves from the impending doom. Will these people go crazy on December 20, ahead of the supposed end date?
Apparently, that thought is worrisome to NASA and the US government. A senior NASA scientist went on Current TV in yet another effort to quell the rising panic about the approaching doomsday date.
"A lot of young people believe this and that is pretty scary. I hear from kids who say they can't eat, they can't sleep, they're considering suicide..." said NASA scientist David Morrison. "There's a poll that suggest that 25 million Americans don't expect to see Christmas this year...I worry about those people. There's nothing that's going to happen to the earth, no cosmic catastrophe. But it's a little scary to think of millions of people who are storing up guns and ammo and machetes. I just hope they stay in their hole on the 21st and don't come out and make a mess."
He's right. If all the people who think the world will be ending on December 21, 2012 come out a day or so ahead of time and kill people, rob stores or cause all out chaos, there really will be a disaster of epic proportions.
Mayan Prophecy Drives Surge In One-Way Flights: Believers in the supernatural are flocking to two small villages - Bugarach in the South of France and Sirince in Turkey - as the end of the Mayan Calendar nears, reveals leading travel search site Skyscanner.
Dedicated followers believe the end of the world is nigh as the Mayan Calendar comes to an end on 21st December 2012, with some expecting the remote farming village of Bugarach to offer an escape. The plan: to catch a connecting flight of an altogether different kind, where in-flight re-runs of the film Alien are replaced with a much more realistic encounter.
Incredibly, searches for flights to the south of France are up 41% in the week before 21st December compared. And, with a 42% increase in searches from the UK alone, that's a good few British believers!
Skyscanner's Victoria Bailie commented: "We were surprised to see how big an increase there has been in searches for flights to the South of France and to Izmir in Turkey leading up to the 21st December: the date of the Mayan Prophecy. Although the fact that we've seen the highest number of flight searches all year for flights on the following day suggests that not everyone is convinced the end of the world really is nigh."
For true Mayan Prophecy believers, one-way tickets to Perpignan, an hour's drive from Bugarach, in the week leading up to 21st December currently start at £483, leaving from Manchester. Alternatively, one-way flights to Izmir, an hour's drive away from Sirince, currently cost £283 from London Stansted.
I guess that is enough of that. I personally suspect that we will all wake up Friday morning and find ourselves facing the same old thing just like every other day of our existence. And just so you know, I will be preparing an article for The Tattler for tomorrow. Hopefully everyone will still be here in the morning to read it.
