2012



Some would look at that date and see the world in a Jetsons like-futuristic way, others see it being not too far off, or even a presidential election, maybe the London Olympics, or perhaps a parole date, but then some others see it as Doomsday or the end of the world.

I heard about this today from my good pal Puffer. According to the Mayan, Egyptian, Cherokee, Hindu, and Hopi civilizations' calendars on December 31, 2012 will be the end of the world. They have predicted in their writings that this is when the world is going to transition into a "new world". Not real sure what this means but it is pretty eerie.

In the year 2012 there are a lot of other interesting things going on during this time:
Charles Manson is up for parole (Don't forget your pins)
The Sun is supposed to reverse its own magnetic poles
The Freedom Tower in NYC is supposed to be completed
Earth will be home to 7 billion people (According to US Census Bureau)
Venus will make its last solar transit in this century (Bye Venus)
It will be a leap year (Happy B-Day Jenna)
433 Eros will be the second largest Near Earth Object on record expected to "pass" the Earth

I don't know about all of you, but I am going to be real anxious when 2012 rolls around. Make sure you mark your calendars.
