Cover article, again (sticky)
- It's a good article (hence the silver), and the (fairly minor) referencing problems can probably be fixed easily... But it doesn't seem quite comprehensive enough for a cover story... Carpetsmoker (talk) 00:30, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
- Good to know; thanks. I was just going over the page to see what needs to be done to make it a cover story. I'll check wikipedia later and add the refs. Carpetsmoker (talk) 00:13, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
Why is there nothing about the 2011 apocalypse?
- Not sure what ones you're talking about specifically. Look at list of predictions of the end of the world and see if they're mentioned. --Ymir (talk) 06:58, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
- Nope. That's because there's several Mayan calendars. Also, on the scale of deep time, the Mayans didn't appear to share our "linear" concept of time (where time moves in one direction, from future to past). So as far as my limited understanding goes, it'd be difficult — if not pseudohistorical — to attempt something like that.
The closest thing to a 2012 apocalypse (and just for some countries) was the Eurozone crisis, when it seemed that the end was nigh for the euro, with the risk premiums of several EU countries as Italy or Spain -not just Greece- skyrocketing in summer of that year and the latter having its saving banks bailed out by the EU, plus something worse prepared in storage (read: major bail-out and austerity). Five years later, (some of the worst) that has happened is that most of the monies given to save said banks will never be recuperated. Panzerfaust (talk) 23:34, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
