THE END - that never comes?

How many times has one heard that the world will end during our lifetime? The year 2000 was a strong contender in the recent past but this prediction turned out to be a flop just like Governor Arnold’s film – ‘End of Days’ which was released year end of 1999 if I’m not mistaken.
Now, the hot new date to watch out for is 12.21.2012 according to the Mayan calendar and several other ‘calendars’ out somewhere taped onto a conspiracy theorist’s wall.

Okay, I just watched the film 2012 the other day so I’m in an apocalypticy mood :-). Maybe it’s because I’ve not been to a movie theatre in a long time + the super special fx that I enjoyed the film. So just go to a theatre near you and watch this film. No spoilers from me in case you have not seen or read about it. One of those movies best viewed on a big screen.

Anyways it seems only a couple of us from our office enjoyed the film. Yes, another thing. I guess I was kind of instrumental in generating the idea of going to watch the movie… so off we went. 90.2012% of our office members went to see the film.

So, highly recommended you try this at your workplace. Ideal conditions for this to happen… less workload + the magic words “The world might end tomorrow…[ add other words of your choice appropriate to what you’ve suggested to do…or maybe not do]”.

On a totally not serious note…. How would you want ‘the world to end’? Nuclear bombs? Tsunami + Meteor impacts? A ruthless new world order bringing chaos and destruction?...or an alien invasion. The whole of Earth fighting a war against unfriendly aliens with evil flying saucers from the planet Nibiru would be nice. Of course, here we lose against the aliens and we all die…and planet Earth gets blown up to kingdom come….unlike the film 2012 where the world does not totally end …..yet again.

Anyways I’ll near the end of this post with some lines I’d like to share from the Insight section of a book I was reading last night..‘Two potential dangers in reading Revelation are avoiding it entirely or getting obsessed with its details….’

Now I’m really gonna end. And I’m gonna reveal something. Remember you read it here on my blog called Learning to Live. You might well already know that Oprah Winfrey is ending her talk show in the near future. She’s coming up with her own channel in the year 2011. But why does she want to end her successfully running daytime show? Why? Why start her OWN channel in 2011??.... I say it's because something is going to happen in 2012!!! And something fishy is happening right now in the kitchen…..smells like fish. Food is ready!!!


  1. Haven't seen it yet, thought of seeing a 9:40 show last night but it was already 8:30 and we knew we'd never get tickets (vai ho hmuhnawm tih chi ania ticket chan ngaihna awmlo)maybe we'll try our luck tomorrow .. if the world doesn't end by then.

    Sometimes I think there will be no "dramatic" world ending: your world ends when you die. As simple as that.

  2. ^^ Hello, 'Vai ho hmuhnawm tih zawng...' im smiling ear to ear...but i guess it's a subject that everyone in general is interested in.. Yep..'our' world ends when one dies..

    but come on..just for a moment..imagine being still alive to witness the end of the world... A moment to die for i'd say :-)...

  3. " Kum 2000 hnu lam computer in a chhut theih tawh lo, khawvel a buai nuaih dawn " tia, pulpit tlang hial a au dum dum thinte kha, hman ni deuh khan ka chhuahchhal a-- he nibiru chungchang an sawi chhuah hian :-)

  4. I haven't watched the movie, but heard a lot about it. I've watched many movies and read theories about the end of the world, but haven't really seen one come true.. :P
    But as you had asked, "How would you want ‘the world to end’?", well, I would not WANT the world to end anyhow, but how do I think it may end? Definitely not Nuclear Explosion (Countries may hate each other, but they know enough the implications of a Nuclear war!)
    I recently watched "The Knowing" and apart from the ESP thing with the kids, the way the world ended, IMHO, was totally believable.. ie from a Solar Flare which was really really scary.

  5. # Sekibuhchhuak > Nia mole Nibiru hi.. ka han zin chhoh lai poh khan local channel ah an ron chhuah ngun thrin khop mai.. kan ina kan nau nula poh a nu, Zokhaw lama awmin a ngaihtuah lutuka tlai khat phei kha chu a ron phone vel :D ... buaithlak thei khop mai... nia Baibul a inziak hi han ring tawp mai ila..

    # blackestred > en ve mai2 roh 2012.. nuihzathlak lutuk.. a changtupate car/plane a an han tlanchhe lai vel chu.. pui tak a ni :D

    Definitely gonna get me hands on this film The Knowing..just took a quick peek into its wiki page.. not gonna read it though ..dont want to know the story.. it's got a cool looking poster too!!.. i'm sold..

  6. As I have said before on my FB profile, my mobile phone LIFETIME VALIDITY PREPAID card expires on 2014, so 2012 cannot be the last year. We still have two more years after that :D

  7. ^^... can you please tell me which service you subscribe to??.. im sure the head of the company has links with the new world order :-).. or maybe it's card that has a good network connection even in the afterlife :D ...

  8. Okay, you're gonna die in a plane crash, that's what you predict. Now hear mine, "I'll die and resurrect on the 7th day"

  9. ^^ ...Thanks for reading the content up in the banner :D ....just a small expression of my aviophobia..
