Will the World End on December 21? No One Asked the Brazilians

mayancalendar

In May of this year, a global independent marketing research firm, Ipsos, sponsored by Thomson Reuters, surveyed 16,262 adults in 21 countries on if they believe the world will cease to exist with the end of the Mayan long calendar on Friday, December 21, 2012.

The results claim that approximately 10% of global citizens believe that the end of the Mayan calendar marks the end of the world.

The samples of opinions were taken from countries such as United States, South Africa, China, France, even Argentina and Mexico. But no Brazil.

With Brazil being such a significant force in the world, how come no one ventured there to ask about Armageddon?

Brazilians here is your chance – tell us, will it all be over by the weekend?

  1. Hi Bee-eigh-bee,
    I think the comment I posted on the thread linked below may be of interest, especially with beach season upon us.

    • Interesting. Very helpful, I usually buy it all in the U.S., I’ll be reading all the labels now. However, related to this post, do you believe that the earth might be careening toward the sun on the 21st. If that is the case, I’m afraid no amount of sun screen will save us my gritty pal.

  2. If it does, I’ll be spending my last days in Buzios. Not bad 😉
