    Don't get so into DDO that you neglect to glance outside a (preferably barred) window periodically. Could be zombies, a locust plague, Westboro picketing in your yard, meteors... the problem with this whole "end of the world" thing is that nobody is even telling us what to expect. Maybe it'll just rain frogs which will lead to ???

    Or maybe it'll rain spiders! Yeah, Mayan spiders!

    For Leo:

    It certainly depends on the Mayan timezone. That would be GMT+6, correct? Still more than 13 hours to go...

    Post-Apocalypse is Pre-Apocalypse. Which one is next?

    I would imagine the end of the world would be midnight local Mayan time yeah? By my count, we have a lot of drinking to do before that happens!

    Some for me:
    And more for everybody else:

    Steve- TL;DR version, Santa comes from legends and stories waaaay back when. There are at last three different possibilities.

    Odin from Norse mythology and when he would ride the night sky on his 8-legged horse Sleipnir.

    In an old Celtic perspective, The Holly King who would fight the Oak King at summer's solstice (Midsummer) and then, as the year continued on and summer changed into fall, fall into winter, he would hunt and gather food for his people, deliver them on a sled pulled by 8 deer. It is said that the Holly King lived in the north during the summer time while Oak King ruled and during the winter months Oak King would move to the south.

    And then there is Saint Nicholas, who was kind, compassionate, giving and was put in prison for either being a Christian and refusing to be worshiped as a god, something. Well, he gets out, becomes a bishop or resumes his. . . bishopry (? Not a word? Well, it is now!) until he passes on December 6th, where the holiday Sinterklass and St. Nicholas's Day comes from.

    Again, quick internet search so don't shoot me if this is inaccurate. Also, today is Yule so I had to do some research and reading and I haven't read it enough for it to be engrained yet. /tongue

    Dredd, ya stinkin' S.O.B! Now I know why there is a reason you won't get out of my head! Good jokes like this.

    *chuckle* BRING IT ON, SPIDERS!!! YOU'LL NEVER GET ME!! NEVAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!! I AM LEO, GODDAMNIT AND YOU WILL HEAR! ME! ROOOOOOOOAAAAAARRRRR!!! ****! YO'! COUCH!

    I remember that. I think TC made a zombie mafia game based off of that. Didn't you play?
