I have heard of a teen in high school who was busted for having sex in the bathroom and blamed her decision on not wanting to die a virgin in 2012.
Could it just be a creative excuse? Maybe, but it does underscore the point that young people are thinking of it as a plausible cause for death
nonetheless. My concern is not so much what the believers will do if 2012 passes uneventfully, but what they will do at the first sign of "trouble"
whether hoaxed or real. It's not at all implausible that some would kill themselves if they honestly thought "Nibiru" was suddenly appearing in
the sky and about to rain down death and destruction or cause a physical pole shift.
What would happen if a hoaxer like Jcattera appeared in December 2012 and started posting videos of an "approaching object" that wasn't just
another lens flare near the sun, but rather a bright planet-like object with specific coordinates in a specific orbit that he claimed could only be
seen in IR? Even better, what if he posted faked evidence that it was causing the asteroid belt to be disrupted or showed the north star being moved
out of position? How many of the 2012 cultists would panic to such an extreme that they off themselves rather than face the imminent consequences?
How many more would grab their panic bags and "bug out," quitting their jobs, uprooting their families, and seriously disrupting their lives all
over a hoax? There is serious potential for harm here, not all of it in the form of suicide, and not all of it requiring a real attack or real
disruption, just the perception of it.
