Don’t Count Your Powdered Chickens Just Yet

(Alternate Title: 2012 Apocalypse Called On Account Of Rain)

Boy, does Roland Emmerich feel silly.

So it turns out that ultra-hip, ubiquitously ad-nauseam doomsday date of December 21st, 2012 may just turn out to be a good day to wrap up shopping for Christmas instead of the End Of Everything.

That pesky Mayan Long Count calendar has long been regarded as a harbinger of the end of the world– mostly because it ends abruptly and mysteriously on 12/21/12.

Well, now it turns out that SOMEONE may have gotten the date wrong. Sheesh.

Of course there is nothing in the Mayan calendar that actually says the world is going to end, but the Siren Song of 2012 has been pulling the imaginative and the kooky in for years, and as we get closer to the date more and more books, movies, TV specials and shysters pop up on the subject. Now that the whole shebang has been called into question, think the onslaught of 2012 hype will slow down?

[I bet that the price of this place will climb the closer to 2012 we get, and then plummet right after.]
