Is the world ending in 2012 because Sarah Palin wins the election?
It's a Mayan calendar thing. December 21, 2012 is when everthing is supposed to end because the Mayans ran out of stone when writing it down. Seems like a logical enough reason to me.
Also the morons who believe it are split over whether it will be an apocalypse or a period of wonder and transformation and great parties.

Not if I have anything to say about it! (Heroic music)
Google Ron Paul!
Uh, God said he wouldn't flood the Earth again. Man, some people need to do a little research.
God was found guilty of breaking the Covenant. I'm not sure if that qualifies as a felony or misdemeanor. But I wouldn't trust that guy with a potted plant.
From the director of "Independence Day" and "The Day After Tomorrow".
This is going to be wonderfully hilarious.
Its the "Day After the Day After Tomorrow last Independence day".
If you read the youtube comments, there's a bunch of people already asking "Is this The Day After Tomorrow 2?"

Oh good, another movie that makes global warming as scary as Emmerlich's Godzilla.
So...we're expecting some Denis Quaid, Jean Reno, Morgan Freeman triple bill here?
Man, if you actually go to see this movie you'll be wishing it had your joke casts rather than whatever bullshit ends up actually starring.

Great to see that hollywood is turning to original and interesting ideas instead of taking things from popular culture, folklore, old movies or pillaging the comic book store.
I, for one, am glad that Hollywood is making trailers for these films, instead of making a Himalayan version of the trailer to the Shining.
It will be interesting to see the ludicrous Hollywood twist they use to save the world in the last 15 minutes...
never forget fear-mongering
Didn't save the world? How dare you, sir! How dare you imply that everyone moving to Mexico is not being saved!

An ideal cast would include Tina Fey as Sarah Palin, the only woman that can stop global warming with the power of the Da Vinci Code, whose secret messages detail how to contact alien city ships hiding above the earth, as Randy Quaid flies an airplane into a giant tornado, stopping it with an explosion that prevents it from running into a city where his daughter sleeps, who dies anyway from overracting as evil aliens invade her farm.
The ending includes a giant freeze gun built in space that automatically both fixes the icecaps and kills the evil aliens while earning the trust of the good aliens, who all happen to look like college fraternity boys. In the last scene, Sarah Palin saves the earth by sending a bomb into the alien ship using scrap metal bent like a hockey stick and using her phenomenal hockey mom skills learned so long ago...the explosive is shot out of the cargo bay and blows up the aliens.
Then her own shuttle explodes. The End.

One of my co-workers is convinced the world will end in 2012. I should send this trailer to her!
Testicles of Doom
One of my co-workers thinks this too.
She says she's sad that her now 4 year old son won't be able to grow up and have a life.
So I say "Then why don't you just kill him now? You'll go to hell, but he'll go to heaven. Win Win!"
This is what coworkers actually believe. And cat hoarders.
Now I have to go to the bathroom.
Because the icecaps are going to melt all at once. I guess a movie about the ocean levels rising 2 centimeters isn't compelling.
Actually, I saw this PBS show about how the scablands were formed in one cataclysmic superflood when a glacial dam finally broke ahead of a humungous lake.
Which just proves what a nerd I am.

Danny Glover is fucking PRESIDENT! Can this movie get any more hilarious?
Five stars for neat effects shots, negative two stars for perpetuating stupid end of the world in 2012 paranoia based on almost literally nothing.
BRUCE WILLIS FUCKING RULES! YEAH HIS NEXT MOVIE!!!!!!

And sorta unrelatedly: I did a cursory search or two and some link clicking on wikipedia and found it's surprisingly hard to find jack shit on 2012 and the apocalypse.
What I did find is that the articles on years (i.e. "2012," "2029," etc) are awesomely interesting.
People really should read about what the mesoamerican long count calender is and about how we live in the "5th age" as the Maya called it and that date signifies the end of that AGE and the beginning of the 6th. True there was usually some sort of cataclysmic as ages transitioned but it wasn't the end. Also I believe this age is supposed to end in fire but I may be wrong.
Looks like a neato movie though, I liked "The Day After Tomorrow" and movies about mankind being wiped out always make me smile.
Firstly, this movie is going to be hilariously awful, so make sure you see it. Plot synopsis includes:
"The story centers on an academic researcher who opens a portal into a parallel universe and makes contact with his double in order to prevent an apocalypse predicted by the ancient Mayans."
Secondly, the actual 2012 shit is interesting and not limited to New Agers and people not understanding Mayan cosmology or even to religions/spirituality. One example being Terrence McKenna's novelty/timewave theory, which tracks "novel" events from the beginning of time, growing exponentially before reaching infinity sometime in November of 2012. Similar to the stuff Kurzweil talks about, a technological singularity, etc. You also have the end of the Kali Yuga, stuff like that.
Well I don't know how other governments will prepare people, but Tibet's guys know exactly what to do.
Ring a BELL! Yeah you show that water Monk!
Our only hope is that that actually happens, so I won't have to see the movie 2012.
4 for the stoic Monk. Good job, team.
