Will You Die on Friday?

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

The end of the world is here. Again. The latest in a long line of end of the world predictions is upon us, but this one is a little bit different. Reports from around the world show people are taking this one more seriously, and its making them act crazier than ever. But why, what makes this prediction different from all the others? Laci Green has the lowdown on what’s coming. Or not coming. Only time will tell.

id love to talk to people who thought the world would end and be like "ha you complete idiot"

daemonx164 February 24, 2014 - 11:11 AM

The Mayans are idiots.

A couple months before the end of the myan calender I watched a seminar explaining that the myan calender doesn't actually end, it's not linear, it's a circular calender to mark the seasons, essentially it just means the weather patterns will repeat. Yep.

I know I died. How about you? :)

I really hope that mother didn't kill herself, her baby, or her daughter. :( She has so much to live for. Let us hope they were okay. I never believed in the apocalypse, or the end of the world, but I do remember my dad telling me about those e-mails NASA was getting. That's so crazy that people would take it that far.

Leon Gamer March 15, 2014 - 8:20 AM

Ravshan Yangibaev March 19, 2014 - 9:48 PM

Dante Wynter March 28, 2014 - 4:49 AM

i still dont get how the end of a calender is a prediction of an apocalypse.
also to anyone who freaks out over this crap, your going to fu* die anyway so stop bi*ng!
also, wait till you know whether or not the epoc is going to be some unbearable torment before you decide to off yourself.

i like how everyone freaked out when really that was when the Mayans celebrated their 100th or 300th new year. if someone know put it in the comments.

Payton Miles March 28, 2014 - 12:14 PM

First of all, the Mayan calendar didn't account for leap years. That means the world "should" have ended approximately 6 months before they said it was going to.

Also, they probably just ran out of stone to write on or something…

Guys, we should be really worried about a normal virus turning into a zombie pathogen, exact year where humanity will probably find its demise is in 4.5 billion yrs. or by then we'll be living on other planets

rodrigo vera June 2, 2014 - 11:22 PM

see this is shy science is awsome because we know when shit is going to go south or not 

David Buterbaugh June 3, 2014 - 5:48 AM

TheLightningWhale June 12, 2014 - 5:46 PM

TheLightningWhale June 12, 2014 - 5:49 PM

Most of these people saying they should suicide should have just done it, the way i see it, its one less idiot in the world riding a damn bandwagon and believing stupid shit…. YEAH, I MEAN YOU TOO YOU STUPID FUCKING CHRISTIAN FANATICS BELIEVING IN JUDGEMENT DAY.

Ghassan El. August 4, 2014 - 4:51 PM

Ghassan El. August 4, 2014 - 4:51 PM

While high school exists (I graduated in 2012) the world can not end. Because if that had happened then I'd wasted 12 years(as with people completing year 12 you have gone through the past 11 don't waste number 12). Anyway some of my fave 2015 movies have been pushed to 2016… That isn't really important though is it?

Spicy July 6, 2015 - 8:23 AM

Yes, Yes it will end.

leutiv December 28, 2015 - 5:15 PM

LemmyJackAndCoke November 7, 2016 - 11:09 PM
