Mayan apocalypse

Grumpy Cat Goes Nyan, Destroys Earth, Everything You Ever Loved

Well, 12/21 passed without incident and, much to everyone's shock, the world didn't come to a fiery end, proving once again that you just can't trust an ancient Mesoamerican culture. In fact, the Inca still owe me $20 after skipping out on a bar tab, and they better not think I've forgotten about it. Today, though, we bring you a glimpse of the apocalypse that could have been, courtesy of of a Nyan-powered Tard the Grumpy Cat. You can behold this truly fearsome thing below, but be forewarned: it is not a video for the faint-hearted or weak-willed.

NASA Releases Video Dated 12/22/12 Explaining Why We Didn’t Die

Friday's the big day! December 21st, 2012. The day we supposedly all die as foretold by ancient Mayan prophecy. Except that it wasn't actually foretold by a prophecy, and we'll all be fine. Well, statistically, some of us won't be fine, but the world as a whole won't end. So says NASA, so say we all. NASA is so confident the world won't end on 12/21/12 that they've already released a video from the future to explain why didn't all die. That takes courage, but it's not like there will be anyone left alive to call them on it if they're wrong.

Australian PM Does Joking Apocalypse Video; Proves Australia Significantly Cooler Than You

what is this I don't even

You might know Julia Gillard as the first female Prime Minister of Australia and leader of the Australian Labor Party. Or you might know her as one of the few world leaders out there who is openly atheist. You might also know her as somebody who can deliver a pretty awesome smackdown.

Apocalypse No: The World Will End When Only The Russian Government Allows It To

With the purported 2012 Apocalypse only a mere 18 days away, many folks are more on edge than ever.

Facing widespread panic and erratic behavior among the populace, Moscow's Ministry of Emergency Situations has come forward and declared that, no, there will not be a world-ending cataclysm come December 21st. Leaving us to ask, fine, but says who?

Man Assumes Mayan Apocalypse Entails a Flood, Blows Life Savings on Boat

Noah's Ark Well, folks, it looks like the December 2012 Mayan apocalypse that seemed so far off is gradually bearing down on us. It's just aching to tear our world asunder, or at least that's the case according to ancient hearsay. While some of us are disregarding it as yet another phony Y2K scare, one man in China, Lu Zhenghai, isn't taking chances. Like a latter-day Noah, he built himself an ark of sorts because, apparently, there's going to be a flood.

Ancient Mayan Murals Reveal That the World Isn’t Ending This Year After All!

Good News Everyone!

One of the biggest raves ever is coming on December 21, 2012 -- at least according to the beloved tin-foil hat faction of the human race. Apparently, a calendar designed by the Mayans predicted that the end of the world was coming on that very date just seven months from now, and some people just decided to run with it and take it as 100 percent truth. But now, markings on newly discovered, 1,200-year-old Mayan murals that have just been unearthed in Xultún, Guatemala might fly right in the face of all those bummer doomsday predictions. In fact, they are being interpreted as a sign that we have many more millennia ahead of us -- so, yes! Mayan science fiction means that the Earth will survive to see a sequel to The Avengers. This is a glorious find, indeed!

Roseanne Will Run for President As a Green Party Candidate, Changing Nothing About the Current Presidential Race

and let it be known

Comedian Roseanne Barr has filed paperwork to run for the President of the United States as a candidate of the Green Party. If you're wondering what this will mean for the presidential race, you may stop now. It means nothing. Barr is really running symbolically, to get her point across, much the way Stephen Colbert did in South Carolina. Except Colbert actually had a lesson to teach us about why everything is wrong with campaign finance. Roseanne just has strong opinions on Twitter. Hey, maybe I should run for President.

Does George Lucas Believe the World is Going to End in 2012?

The Toronto Sun thinks that Seth Rogen thinks so.  Aaand, that's really all there is to say about the matter.  According to the Sun, Rogen was in a position to find this out when George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg joined a meeting he was in:

George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it. He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ’My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry...

Men in Black 3: In 3D, In 2012

It's official. Columbia Pictures has secured actor Will Smith, director Barry Sonnenfeld, and is in "advanced negotiations" with Tommy Lee Jones: Men in Black 3 is scheduled for a summer 2012 release. In a possible major plot-related give away, Columbia has also announced that they are in talks with Josh Brolin (of No Country for Old Men and Milk) to play a young Agent Kay.

ScreenRant suggests that this means that the movie will heavily feature the training of a new Kay. We have another idea.
