That's what's so flawed about this thing, when it turns 21st in the furthurest western time zone it's actually already the 22nd in the furthurest east time zone as they're overlapped. It's not as simple as the world will end this day, or at this time or whatever.

If the world did end it's not gonna be some boom it's midnight, everyone is dead kinda thing which everyone seems to be making it out as, and if the world was really gonna end on the 21st we'd be seening crazy things way before now.

I would guess midnight in a major Mayan capital. Chichen Itza in Mexico is on CST.

I visited Cancun once but didn't have a chance to go up to check out Chichen Itza.

I think it's safe to say the Mayans have made a massive unforced error with this call.

Re: ***Countdown to 2012 Doomsday.....will it happen?

If NASA said World is gonna end within a year, I'm sure most people would start spending all their savings knowing they won't need them anyway. But I'd see there a good chance to get rich. I'd take immediately a loan to buy a casino to get the money of people who are gambling like it's the last day of their life. And once it would've turned out that NASA had fucked up that prediction, I'd be the World's richest man whereas ppl like Bill Gates and Carlos Slim would've lost all their money at my casino.
