[quote:Anonymous Coward 28105140:MV8yMDY3OTA2XzM0Nzk2NzQ4XzhCODZCOTE=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 19099851:MV8yMDY3OTA2XzM0Nzk0ODU4X0IwRjZENTY2] I am so sorry that you've spent 40 years of your life "prepping" for doom that will never come. To make it worse, had you done 5 minutes of research, you would have seen there is 0 evidence for the doom to begin with. What a wasted life. [/quote] I was able to read her story and get a sense that it created a SENSE OF DISCOMFORT and was RATHER DISCONCERTING. I do not get a sense that OP has been living under a bridge rocking back and forth for 40 years. I hate people like this that twist and dramatize everything someone says. Go crawl into a corner and shut your trap, because you are simply an annoyance. There are several people in my family like this and I hate them all. So yeah, this touches a nerve. Start listening to people and maybe PROCESS SOME INFORMATION. Jerk. [/quote]
My Parents in the early 70's had this round gold replica of the Mayan calender hanging on their large brick fireplace . My Mother had got the Mayan replica calender as a decoration ( the whole Spanish style was really in back then ) .
I used to stare at it and wonder what it was as a young child . The face in the middle was creepy and scared me.
One day this man came over . my Dad was a rocket scientist/ engineer and worked with this guy who was a higher up one of their top scientists in the department.
( We found out later he really came over to lay off my DAD cause they were letting people go after the space program had died down. He wanted to tell him in the private comfort of his home as liked my Dad and they were friends ) .
Anyways, this scientist who worked with my Father notices the Gold Mayan calender hanging over the fireplace , he walks over to it , touches it, and says to my Mother " you know what that represents and means don't you ?!!!"
...Then says to us
( right in front of me as a little kid )
THAT Calender represents and marks our end ,
when our world ends "!!! -
and then he looked down at me and said -
" you will be all grown up then so don't worry that's like 40 years from now ! "
I now believe he was one of those professor types without any comment sense .
IT upset my Mother so much after he left she picked it up , took it outside and smashed it on the new driveway . It broke into little pieces . I think she was mainly upset that he had told her 6 year old kid about the end of the world , combined with the fact he had just let my Dad go from his engineer work at Rocketdyne ( my parents had just bought a brand new home ) .
I will never get that image out of my head of her breaking that Mayan replica ! she was so angry - it really affected me.
For years what he said that day has always haunted me .
Way I see it now is
what will happen will happen
and there is nothing more I can do about it
( yes I have prepped a little )
but ok somethings are just out of our control
and I have accepted that .
IT no longer scares me .
I am at peace
