Actually the running theory states that this mystery planet just nicked Earth knocking a large chunk free which became our moon. The planet then was either destroyed in the collision or knocked into a degenerative orbit eventually falling into the sun. The likelihood that it could have been placed into a stable eliptical orbit around the sun is less than slim.

Actually its even more confusing. A compass has a magnetic needle with one pole marked 'north'. Its a magnetic north pole. It is not attracted to another magnetic north. Magnetic Norths repel each other. The magnetic north end of the needle, which is what points in the geographic direction of 'North', is being attracted by a magnetic south pole.
...unless I am confusing myself and its the other way around!

If 2012 IS the end of the world, would you REALLY want to know, and would it REALLY matter HOW it happened? Personally I agree. I can't wait until 2013 so I can laugh at all the doomsayers.
