I heard last week that the city where "Made in China" is from....it's losing a lot of business because of the American economy. So I was thinking, how most countries depend on other countries to hold their economy together....I was thinking, what if the whole world goes bankrupt? It'd be anarchy....I mean, money is power....people would go crazy; there'd be no order....There'd be no control....Maybe it'll happen by 2012, the end of the world!

Maybe the economy's not that bad, but....it's just a thought....

My roommate at college truly believes that the world's going to end in 2012. It's kinda depressing.... :?

Have lotsa sex.

This doesn't explain how Random is going to prepare for the end of the world.

Naw, it will be like the Great Depression again.

Step 2: Spend all your money, which is now, essentially worthless.

I really don't think the economy is in that kind of a state. We, at this point, are a little bit incapable of a "great depression" because of the level of increase in technology. I just don't think it's going to happen. I mean... I went to a grocery store yesterday and had to stand in line for an hour. That's not pre-depression levels of purchasing. If that had been a soup kitchen I would understand the worry for a "depression" but I think people underestimate just how bad the great depression was. We don't have anywhere near the unemployment and we don't have anywhere near the level of businesses closing and we don't have anywhere near the poverty level. Also, the economy was kicking *** before the great depression then it fell like a ton of bricks, pretty much all at once, for a similar reason I suppose, but we have had a downward climb as opposed to fall. That means there will be enough time to fix it as long as we get someone remotely competent with economics as the economic advisor (then the new president, you know, listens) so we stop getting stupid stimulus packages and bailouts and instead get what we really need which is incentive for small businesses to open so that people get jobs and start spending that money.
As far as the interdependence goes, we are a lot more connected then we were. I think, if anything though, this will just lead to more organizations like the European Union. More globalization. Will it be a recession? Yes. A depression I think is a little to far.

Guys, we missed the big point in Lamgsta's post.

The "Made in China" city is going under! I never knew a whole city made all the " Made in China" goods!

I decided to ignore that. Because if we question that, we'll only increase his power tenfold.

Soon that Age of Technology will come to an end and the Age of Magic will once again rise. Some will be chosen by a great wizard to become Visionaries, Knights of the Magical Light!
