Just a short post to ask what you think about the hysterics about 2012? Dozens of books, websites galore, and TV shows coming out my ears, all talking about the Mayan Long Count Calender, the various disasters, the others that have made similar or the same predictions. Personally I think the best thing that could happen for the planet is the elimination of humanity, or at the least a serious thinning of the herd, but hey, that's just me, no big deal. There is supposed to be a galactic alignment and other stuff that may create some problems.
But, what do you think, 2012 is the end of the world or age, OR another Y2K with lots of noise, worry, and then a big nothing?
