So their computer is being prophetic by reading and collating online news sites? My dad clipped out and saved a small article a few years before the 2004 tsunami that mentioned the USGS warning of a big quake potentially building in Sumatra, oh shit he must be a prophet too!

Is it just me or are these cable networks (History, Discovery, etc) doing more and more pseudo scientific/super natural phenomenon crap these days?
They made the mistake of looking at the most popular videos on Youtube and planning their schedule around it.
Next season is nothing but speed runs and cat talking translations.
It was smart of them to wait 9 years, everyone's already forgotten about the apocalypse that happened in 2000.

I knew a woman at my last job who believed this so much, she was going to move back to India to be with her family for the end times.
Also, in Shadow Run, the awakening happens in 2012.
I have a girl at my work that asked me if I thought it this was true cus she was worried and I said "No, it's a bunch of crap."
Her response was "Ok, that makes me feel better." And no further explanation was needed I guess.

This reminds me of another of those apocalypse specials I saw years and years ago, which had some truly hilarious dramatizations. I seem to remember that in 2012 our appliances will turn against us, as part of the dramatization involved someone with a waffle iron stuck to their face.
I really really wish I could find that show again, it was amazing.
I knew a guy who believed in that "Nibiru" nonsense, the so-called "12th planet" that's supposed to pass by Earth in 2012 and cause calamities, etc. and of course some whackos have tied it in to the whole "MAYANS PREDICTED THE END OF THE WORLD IN 2012!!!" business.
The Mayan calender does not predict the end of the world, it just shows one of their 'cycles' ending on a certain date. It'd be like looking at one of our calenders and deciding the world ends on December 31st. There are Mayan references to dates thousands of years in the future and no evidence that the Mayan's believed 2012 was the end. The Mayan calender/2012 stuff has its origins in the New Age movement with folks like Jose Arguelles and 'psychonaut' Terence McKenna.
And the Planet X/Nibiru crap got it's start with charlatan Zechariah Sitchin who gained some believers with his books wherein he claimed to have interperated Sumerian texts and manuscripts and totally twisting them into fabrications, claiming the Sumerians wrote extensively about Nibaru and it's people, and it caused the Biblical flood last time it visited, etc. Further review of his translations have steadily been debunked and shown to be completely innacurate by professionals - but that doesn't stop conspiracy yahoos from citing him as a reliable source.
I saw this aired on The Discovery channel. That channel has become supreme in douchebagery content. Beside all the Mythbusters knockoff shows and the reality crap shows, they begun showing a multitude of doomsday docudramas like SUPER VOLCANO etc etc.
This show is basically a rehash of all the doomsday shit they threw on the air. See it as a Year in Review.
-1 because Discovery is now synonymous with Douchery.
Which of these fuckwits is the most punchable? I vote Daniel Pinchbek.
"with a name like Daniel Pinchbek, it has to be good"
It's History Channel. You people surprise easy.

History Channel: Making people that don't ever read feel smart.
End of Days was Arnold's shittiest movie ever.
"Morons Actually Believe This Shit" is a tag that needs to see more use.
