I believe that would be more realistic than the idea of people suddenly being taken up in mid air, or the population of the earth that is left behind being destroyed by some angry deity.

A promotion for a movie that mimics reality isn't a hoax, though.

It would be a hoax only if there were no way to tell that it's actually a realistic-looking promotion. The first window of it that pops up on my computer clearly identifies Sony Pictures in the lower left corner.

Now, that people are unlikely to scrutinize this site and thus will assume that this is an actual institute is precisely what companies using such advertising hope will occur.

As the old saying goes, "Buyer beware!"

very true, Dot. the sony name does not pop up when I open the page, maybe it is my software. I had to go to page source
I kept thinking if this is for real, then someone is working hard on dupeing a lot of people.

I do find the promotion in very poor taste. Since there are actually people who believe this tripe.

actually, they are not working very hard at all-a campaign like this is cheaper than traditional movie advertising; the HW buzz is they went into cost over runs because of the writers strike-so they opted for non-traditional buzz

FYI, Blair Witch was low budget and did their WEB stuff for the same reason-lack of funds

I don't think it could be appropriately be called a "Hoax", this is what is known as Viral Marketing, though people have not always acted rationally to some of the more organic forms of it...

The World can't end & won't end in 2011 or 2012. Why? Because my permanant hadicap placard don't expire until 08/31/2013. So there. Very Happy

Okay, Warlord, so whose placard counts? Hubby's expires the end of September 2012. < grin >

Now, I'd be willing to yield to yours as the higher-ranking if his weren't a permanent, too.

Guess we could flip a coin mebbe?

If you have a permanent handicap, why does the placard expire?

Very Happy

Because some excuses for humans are dishonest and use a deceased relative's placard so they can get plummy parking spaces thereby avoiding exercising a few ounces off their fat asses.

Missouri now requires a renewed doctor's authorization every few years basically for the purpose of attesting that yes, you ARE still alive and are in fact the person entitled to a permanent placard. Apparently, the practice of glomming onto a dead person's placard became so widespread that it got to be ridiculous.

I have the placard just in case I'm riding in someone else's car. I have handicap tags on my own car. I just got the permanant one & the tag this last month. For a year I had to have tempory placards. It's the way Ks makes sure you're not abusing the right. And yes, I had to get a statement saying why I needed them & signed by my Doctor. scratch

Anyway. Getting back to the subject of 2012. On some of the shows on the History Channel that have dealt with this & with other end of the world prognostitations that have came & passed without anything happening. The latest one is that the Mayan Calender date is based also on the fact that on that date there will be a Galactic alighment that only happens once every 26,000 years & it is this alighnment that is going to cause the end of the world due to the gravitational forces involved. Hmmmm. It wasn't long ago when there was a alighnment/conjunction of the Palanets that was going to wreck havok with the World. Well that didn't happen & neither will it happen in 2012. This Galactic event happens every 26,000 years. The World hasn't been destroyed yet. There's no Archological nor Geological evidence that shows a Worldwide destruction every 26,000 years.

Polar shifts.
They have discovered stripes on the ocean floor that happen when the poles shift magnetic polarity. We're about due.

Just to amend above... Magnetic pole shift is a slow process that doesn't affect life on the planet... Nasa magnetic pole shift article

I had read in science mags that pole shifts induce ice ages.

But then again they're predicting a mini-ice age in abou 40 years.

Now we can see what you'll look like on 12/22/2012.

I recall hearing on the History Channel fairly recently that we are experiencing the beginnings of a reversal, and that the ozone layer is dependent on the strong dipolar magnetic field... and without an ozone layer, no protection from the deadly solar, cosmic and other extraterrestrial radiation, so the environment and all life would die. I am no expert though, and maybe this was just an unproven hypothesis and they overblew it (I certainly never heard anything like that prior to this show). In any case, the reversal would take a very long time, so we'll be around far longer than 2012, or at least we won't be destroyed from magnetic pole reversal by then.

I weep with what the history channel has become, a mixture of Spike tv and Conspiracy chat. I remember when they had more programs on history than UFO's... I'm nostalgic at 25, oh dear. Crying or Very sad

They've made history more fun to learn in some ways. But accuracy should not be compromised.

I gave up on the History Channel when they became All Hitler, All The Time.

The pole shift is something we're actually vastly overdue for. We're also heavily overdue for a pole flip but the main danger with both isn't atmospheric effects but that we're so dependent on electronics which could be buggered up by the moving poles.

current theory says no problem with the ozone

during a reversal the poles move but don't disappear-so the atmosphere is still protected
