December 20th, 2012 Spark Comic #53 - December 21st, 2012
I'm back folks! Finally finished my semester, so now I have time to make comics. Because of Christmas, I'm probably only going to make a Short Bonus comic for next Tuesday, but I hopefully should be able to get some regular comics out on time over the next few weeks after that.
As for today's comic, I've had this idea for over a year now, but it'd be an understatement to say this whole thing with the Mayans has gotten kind of annoying long before the actual date. I mean, it used to be an okay joke until you hear it a billion times. If the Mayans could predict the end of days, they would've predicted the destruction of their empire, prevented that, and still be here as a large civilization instead of merely ruined temples (Though some of their descendants are still around). Did nobody think the Mayans just got bored making a Calendar WAYYYYY beyond their time? Heck, is there even more room on that giant rock? While it's still a bit funny to see people making fun of it on Twitter, it baffles me the amount of people in this day and age that fall for these "End is Nigh" predictions with no evidence, proof, or logic behind them. Harold Camping is a perfect example. If you haven't heard of him, look him up. His adverts stating that May 21st, 2011 was Judgement Day reached even up here in Canada, and it was annoying as hell (Pun intended) seeing them everywhere! Meanwhile, he raked in millions, with people literally giving him all of their savings thinking that they wouldn't need it anymore. Humans are born with brains, yet every day I see a new example of people seemingly being born without one or just not using it. If people just gave the slightest bit of thought to these Apocalypse predictions, they'd realize it's all malarky and go on about their day.
There's only ONE
real threat on December 21st, 2012: Mass hysteria from idiots who take this crap WAY too seriously. Also, Gangnam Style is just a few million views from getting 1 Billion views before tomorrow. It makes a few million views per every few hours. If it makes it to a billion before tomorrow, shit is gonna split.
See you next comic! Note:
The Raptor Model was made and is copyright of Digital Tutors
(Love you guys!). I made the clothing and manipulated it to turn it into Raptor Jesus. The inspiration for Raptor Jesus came from the Ask Raptor Jesus Flash cartoon by SexualLobster
. Also, I did all of the 3D work in a program called Maya... I'm not sure if that's a bad sign or not... Coincidence? o_OUPDATE:
Sweet mother of god... Gangnam Style hit 1 BILLION views on December 21st, 2012... THE MAYANS PREDICTED SOMETHING RIGHT! SHIT IS GONNA SPLIT!
