Only 7 years left according to the Mayans. They predicted the world (as we know it) ends 12/21/2012.
Live it up!!

This stuff is really amazing, I love it. A tidbit of trivia first- The Mayans were the first to use the concept of '0' (zero), how can you count or add without 0? The 1st to develop the calender and the most elaborate form of heiroglyphs in the americas-based on the Olmecs version. Their calendar accurately measures the solar year to within minutes. Still correctly pinpoints all of our solar mvmnts and eclipses.
Their sacred calendar is called The Tzolk'in and is based upon the 'Cycles of the Pleidies'and the Precession of the Equinox. You might enjoy knowing that the 'Calendar in Stone' of the Great Pyramid in Giza describes the 'Phoenix Cycle' of Our galactic orbit. It also ends in 2012 A.D.
tick, tick, tick... p.s. look up the Precession of the Equinox

I could be mistaken, but I believe the calender just ends there. I don't think they specifically predicted that the world's going to end.
I've said this before: What if they just got lazy, or, the guy who was writing the calender just died suddenly or something. Wouldn't that be ironic?

nothing is going to end, nobody talks about the end of the world, they talk about an end of an era - the age of pescies, in 2012 we are moving into the age of aquarius. The bible never says the world will end, just the era, its a translation error.
dont be dissapointed though, you still might get hit by a bus in the near future...life is like that, unpredictable
