Mayan End of the World Prophecy Is True, Declares Australian Prime Minister (VIDEO)


prime minister gillardAre the Mayans right? Are we just days away from the end of the world? No one seems to be taking their warning seriously! 12/21/12 you guys -- it's like next week. I feel like I should be buying bottles of water and getting spare batteries for my flashlights. Still no word from President Obama, but as usual, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard is way ahead of the curve: Behold, a video statement by the Prime Minister on the End of the World.

Oh I'm just kidding! And so is the Prime Minister. She filmed this video with a radio morning show as a joke. I do like how she says, "I will always fight for you, to the end." I hope she's serious about that. Because zombies -- yeech. Anyway, as you can imagine, some Australians are thrilled that their PM is totes hilars and other Australians are demanding their tax money back (haters be boring). I can't even imagine the uproar if Barack Obama were ever to make joke announcement like this. Remember when he slow-jammed the news with Jimmy Fallon? (Do it again, Obama!)

Still ... don't you ever wonder, just a teensy bit -- what if the Mayans really ARE right? That would be so weird! And bad. Mostly bad. I admit, I've spent a few seconds contemplating what would happen if 12/21/12 really were the end of the world. And then, because I'm a blogger, I got distracted by something funny on BuzzFeed and moved on with my day. LOLZ grumpy cat!

But you know what? If it turns out that Prime Minister Gillard and the Mayans are right and the end of the world happens on December 21, I want you to know one thing: I will NOT fight for you to the end. I will run for the hills with all the cookies.

Do you ever wonder if the Mayans were right about the end of the world?

I don't worry about it. If it's the end of the world, there is nothing we can do to stop it. And I don't think it's true, anyway. I've experienced the "end of the world" many times in my 35 years and for some reason, it's still here and we are still alive. I'm sure it will be the same this time.

You might not be fully understanding what THE END of the world would mean.     Hoarding bottles of water and running for hills won't help!    If people could survive in the hills the Mayans would have made sure the calender continued for them.     lol

or, you know... maybe somebody stepped back and went "hey man, i carved out this calendar up to 2012! that's soooooo far away! should i make the next one?" and his co-carver says "nah, i think we're good. hey, maybe people will think that's the end of the world! wouldn't that be funny?"

The Mayans didn't predict their own demise so the calender is already wrong for them.    It would be more entertaining if they'd predicted something that we would be around  to verify if they're right.

The end of the world will be the absolute end. I don't get why people stock up their basements and build underground bunkers. It won't save them in the least because we'll ALL die, no matter where we are. Preparing for tornadoes, floods, fires, and hurricanes? Sane. Preparing for the end of the world? Insane.

lol It is the end of a cycle. As in "the end of the world as we know it" Who knows what they were talking about. Cause really for them the world ended a LONG time ago. :p
