Institute for Human Continuity?

Post by mrandyk » Thu Aug 27, 2009 6:07 pm

Today I saw a commericial for this organization. They say the Mayans predicted the world will end in 2012 and that scientists have confirmed it. On their site you can apply to be a part of their election to find the leader of the post 2012 world with first prize being a trip to Mexico and the runner up prizes being Playstation 3 systems. You can also register for the national survival lottery. Perhaps I will be the leader that this post apocalyptic world that will be needed.

I wonder if they said anything at the commercial I was watching about this being a movie promotion.

Ever since the world ended in 2000, I've been taking these possibilities very seriously.
