Remember that song by REM? It came to mind after I read that the world might end in 2012 for the millionth time. Apparently, there´s even a specific date, Dec 21st. I know the Western world in deep trouble, due to the current financial crisis. However, those who have spread the news and really believe it, please get real.
The cause is a planet that is going to crash into the Earth next Thursday. It is all based on the Mayan calendar. I have read on numerous occasions that there is a 12th planet in our system, Nibiru, that orbits the Sun every few thousand years. It would make its appearance this coming Thursday and crash into the Earth.
See below three other possible explanations as to why it could happen:
The first theory goes even further, there is a mountain in France called Pic de Bugarach which is supposed to offer protection. French officials are concerned about the possibility of mass suicides and have blocked access to the mountain. Apparently, both the Nazis and Mossad have performed some diggings there in the past too… Crazy troublemakers.
Many people these days fear more the prospect of a not being able to make needs meet at the end of every month. Some others, are quite angry about it, and have been working to prove that there will be a 22nd December 2012.
In the mean time, Christmas is coming up, and in London we party as if there was no tomorrow. I think it actually is the end of this sad world as we know it, and the beginning of a new and better one. The Hobbit movie is also out!
Enjoy yourselves, don´t worry too much, and visit back soon. Thanks so much for reading.
