Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

How the world will end

So, i was sitting at home participatingng in what i call "cultureising my self" which in pratical sinces means percratinating on my homwowrk. My "cultrueization" envoles long periods of staring at the wall, and looking up random opreas on youtube. I was in the middle of listening to Carmina Burana by Carl Orff (yes you should look it up now) and I decided that i would like to know how the world would end, becuse i figured im pretty far down the list of important people, and i might get the memo late. So i took Sean Covey's advice and decided to be proative (yes look him up too). I did what any sinsible person would do and googled "how the world will end." I got a whole slue of stuff about 2012 and those lovely Mayans stopping there calender there. I also found things from variuos different reliogns. I found contradicting, funny, and distubing theioes that could, for all I knew, all be ture and happen symotaniusly. (It's a scary thought I know.) And i realized that the ending of the world is not just one large event but held in billions of differnt percepions. There wont be one story of the end of us, but billions weaved together, from the billions of eyes, ears, thoughts.  I want to know at least some of the story of how we will end from your preditions...



So how do you think the world will end?



Then i turned the song to Ladies of the world by: flight of the conchords.

Re: How the world will end

It will end when I become uncool. This being said, never.

Re: How the world will end

I don't think it would end anytime soon. At least not in our life time. If it was anything, it could be a slight movement of the sun.

Re: How the world will end

I don't think the world will end, well maybe on a thousand some years but no not now or in 2012.  Just because the Mayan (spelling?) calander ended Dec 21, 2012 means the world would end.  And even if it did (highly doubted) no one would know.  It'd probabaly be like that. *snaps fingers* No one would know, or feel any pain.
