Ahh..here we go again with this apocalypse crap. Some people are just too concentrated on it,weird since 2012 doesn't predict any armageddon at all.

Ever since the start of time, we've been obsessed with predicting the end of time, and countless people have been made fools of in the process. On some level, most of us want it to happen. Think of all the BS, injustice, and ignorance in this world... Wouldn't it be better if we started over and you could help mold the new world with your ideals? Maybe not, but most of us still think that it would be, therefore we have a desire for the apocalypse.
2012 is much more interesting than others because there are multiple independent predictions of something big, but that doesn't guarantee anything, and they don't agree on what will happen. Maybe something interesting will happen, but I don't expect the apocalypse. I'm just going to keep living my life, and whatever is meant to happen will happen. I'm reasonably prepared to fend for myself and others if SHTF, but that's not because of 2012 issues, it's just a reasonable thing to do in this world that we live in.
