New $10,000 contest – Just guess in comments

by Jeremy Schoemaker on April 1, 2012 · 75 comments

We have given away a ton of cash over the years by having fun contests.

As you know the Mayans predicted the world will end this year (looks like december).

The person who can guess the date and time the closest (without going over) will receive $10,000 via paypal.

Good luck and enter your guess below in the comments!

11:11am Dec 21st 2012 is like our daily clock going from 11:59pm to 12:00am, just on a perfect calendar with each equinox in perfect alignment.

The world will not end.

Show me the money.

There have been about 514 leap years since caesar created it in 45BC. Without the extra day every 4 years today would be October 1, 2013 Also, the Mayan calendar did not account for leap year, so technically the world should have ended 13 months ago.

@adamgreen “Also, the Mayan calendar did not account for leap year, so technically the world should have ended 13 months ago.”

I think Adam should win the $10K since his prediction is spot on. Get a good lawyer :)

36 Diane

Maybe that was the Mayan’s ‘April Fools’ just for us in 2012, just keep us guessing, did they run out of flat-stone to chisel-on, and we are reading ‘that’ as the end of the world?

37 Edgar

The world is not ending. Hope I win.

42 Jim

From what I remember the Mayans didnt actually predict the end of the world. But if we are guessing dates that are popular theories it would be 12/21/2012 11:12am. Winter solstice!

Are we guessing the time and date of the end of the world or time and date the Mayan calendar ends? X.X

grinning….grinning wider. so the world is ending according to the Myan calander. yes, everyone says 12/21/2012. 11:11 UTC….okay…could happen…but I predict that no one on earth can really predict the end…only God knows….and so far, He aint tellin’….lol

53 xaban

In about billion years the sun will become too hot for us.
But I hope we will get away sooner, so Earth’s end won’t be our world’s end.

I guess the Shoemaster won’t be around then. Perhaps he’s going to set a foundation (like Mr. Nobel)?
How much $10,000 can be worth in 1 billion years time? ;)

54 Thierry
