The end of the USA in 2010 thread got me thinking about the hot topic right now:
the Year 2012.
This theory is even more silly. It is mostly based on the fact that the Mayan calendar ends in December 21 2012. Do a google search on the 2012 crisis and people are actually buying into this. I heard stories of people quitting their jobs and getting ready for the end. When December 21 2012 rolls by and nothing happens these people are going to shoot themselves
If you haven't heard of this one yet, to sum it up:
The Mayan calendar ends in December 21 2012. So people think the world will either end or significantly change that day.
