2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

    The doomsday prediction was set by a Mayan Calendar so you have to wait for it to be the 21st for where the Mayas lived, not based on where you live.

    There is too much swimming coverage for my tastes. Every night there is swimming coverage. That and gymnastics.

    SHOW SOMETHING DIFFERENT, NBC!! There are many other events at London that you could easily showcase!

    Is the World still ending?

    Not quite true... the Mayan calendar didn't have leap years but it didn't need them. Leap years are artificial constructs of our calendars meant to offset the days we lose since our concept of a day doesn't quite match up with the exact time it takes for the earth to rotate once on its axis. The Mayan calendar that everyone freaks out about is based on how many days have gone by, not specific years and dates. So it doesn't matter whether the Gregorian calendar has been adding in extra days here and there to account for math rounding--the Mayan calendar is supposed to restart (not end!) after x number of days and it will. On December 21, 2012 because that happens to be the equivalent day in the Gregorian calendar based on literal days, not how we measure days in recent history.

    Simply put, the "end of the world" to us is just like turning over to a new millennium to the Mayans. :P All that changes is their 12th cycle becomes the 13th.

    The way the Mayan calendar system works is, on the basicmost level, that it doesn't end. It's just one really super long year that keeps going and going...but it has to stop eventually, because people get tired eventually and stop writing in days.

    Also consider that the Mayan calendar does not take into consideration "leap years," so the world should have ended already (by the "Mayan's Standards").

    The calendars that were unearthed extend to over 7,000 years from now, so if you do believe i that stuff, then the world won't end this year. Either way, 2012 isn't the end, so nothing to fret about.

    Yup. They pretty much ran out of toner when it came to writing their newest calenders, so to speak.

    These prophets need to get with the program.
