It seems that, for most people, preparing for these events is the same as preparing for the "Zombie Apocalypse"; lock your doors, cover your windows, stock pile as much food as possible, and don't let them smell you! Also, it's like people turn into crazed wild creatures, fighting each other for the last can of chicken noodle soup at the grocery store.
All this leads to the latest apocalyptical craze: 2012. Books were written, movies were made, people freaked out. All because a group of people thousands of years ago made a calendar that stopped in 2012. Now my theory, which is supported by some, is that they just ran out of space. I mean that things is huge to begin with and they probably figured someone would just make another when the time came or something. Little did they know their population would almost die out.

I am here to spread some good news. On Facebook today, I read something that someone overheard on a news cast or science show or something (not sure which - tried to Google it, no luck). Obviously it is not very reliable source but it still made me laugh. This is what was written: "There have been about 514 Leap Years since Caesar created it in 45BC. Without the extra day every 4 years, today would be July 28, 2013. Also, the Mayan calendar did not account for leap year. So technically the world should have ended 7 months ago." Makes sense, I guess.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the news folks! It's not all over. We are not all doomed! So enjoy your week.
