No, hang on it's alright.... it's not midnight here yet!

p.s. Damned bad timing on the End of The World anyway, we're meant to be having our office party starting in an hour {sigh}. Still, better than having planned it for tomorrow I suppose, now that would be funny! :lol:

Probably not the Mayans but the doom's day prophets assumed that it ends at the end of 22nd in the Mayan TZ at the Mayan time (era).

don't tell me how much you paid for 5 years renewal.

i'm kicking myself for paying $29.90 US for domain registration 2 weeks ago.

rat bastards - i always thought the fee was standardized. OH JUST $15 BUT IT HURTS...

But Panama is on a different TZ to the rest of the Mayan lands. So how?

I'm starting to wonder about both them, and these Doomdsay 'so-called- prophets!

Are there any other dates when it was meant to have ended?


p.s. For some reason a cult that committed mass-suicide (US?) comes to mind... 1960/70s? But I forget whether they were expecting the EOTW or not...


You have these guys:

They belived the world was ending, but I don't see a date defined. They commited mass suicide sometime the week of 20-27/3/97, is that random enough for you? :) (date range is when they filmed their suicide video to when the police found them)
