If something like this does happen I don't know what to do, I don't want to die, the only thing that's dangering me is the Mississippi and the New Madrid fault, I'm also in the path of the Yellowstone Volcano ash cloud. So basically I need to stock up on food, water, ammunition and gasoline for the generator.

Think that they should step it up a notch say, this year in August is when it'll first hit then the beginning of the end will come. The event and date of 2012 is just saying the end of the end.
So far NASA has done a great job of saying that they shut down the programs for "Money Issues." Biggest bunch of hogwash I have ever heard. They already know that this Brown Dwarf is coming and it coming in hot. But so far they showed some way of compassion by warning everyone to prep up and prepare for the coming storm, which was nice of them.
This is the thriller part of the roller-coaster of life, who here can brave this part and live to tell the tale? I have no intention of dying when this event is taking place.
# Space Travel #
«There is practically no chance communications space satellites will be used to provide better telephone, telegraph, television, or radio service inside the United States.» T. Craven, FCC Commissioner, in 1961 (the first commercial communications satellite went into service in 1965).
«Space travel is utter bilge.» Richard Van Der Riet Woolley, upon assuming the post of Astronomer Royal in 1956.
«Space travel is bunk.» Sir Harold Spencer Jones, Astronomer Royal of the UK, 1957 (two weeks later Sputnik orbited the Earth).
«To place a man in a multi-stage rocket and project him into the controlling gravitational field of the moon where the passengers can make scientific observations, perhaps land alive, and then return to earth - all that constitutes a wild dream worthy of Jules Verne. I am bold enough to say that such a man-made voyage will never occur regardless of all future advances.» Lee DeForest, American radio pioneer and inventor of the vacuum tube, in 1926
# Rockets #
«We stand on the threshold of rocket mail.» -– U.S. postmaster general Arthur Summerfield, in 1959.
«... too far-fetched to be considered.» Editor of Scientific American, in a letter to Robert Goddard about Goddard's idea of a rocket-accelerated airplane bomb, 1940 (German V2 missiles came down on London 3 years later).
«A rocket will never be able to leave the Earth's atmosphere.» New York Times, 1936.
# Atomic and Nuclear Power #
«The basic questions of design, material and shielding, in combining a nuclear reactor with a home boiler and cooling unit, no longer are problems... The system would heat and cool a home, provide unlimited household hot water, and melt the snow from sidewalks and driveways. All that could be done for six years on a single charge of fissionable material costing about $300.» –- Robert Ferry, executive of the U.S. Institute of Boiler and Radiator Manufacturers, 1955.
«Nuclear-powered vacuum cleaners will probably be a reality in 10 years.» -– Alex Lewyt, president of vacuum cleaner company Lewyt Corp., in the New York Times in 1955.
«That is the biggest fool thing we have ever done [research on]... The bomb will never go off, and I speak as an expert in explosives.» Admiral William D. Leahy, U.S. Admiral working in the U.S. Atomic Bomb Project, advising President Truman on atomic weaponry, 1944.
«Atomic energy might be as good as our present-day explosives, but it is unlikely to produce anything very much more dangerous.» Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister, 1939.
«The energy produced by the breaking down of the atom is a very poor kind of thing. Anyone who expects a source of power from the transformation of these atoms is talking moonshine.» Ernest Rutherford, shortly after splitting the atom for the first time.
«There is not the slightest indication that nuclear energy will ever be obtainable. It would mean that the atom would have to be shattered at will.» Albert Einstein, 1932.
«There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom.» Robert Millikan, American physicist and Nobel Prize winner, 1923.
# Television #
«Television won't last. It's a flash in the pan.»
Mary Somerville, pioneer of radio educational broadcasts, 1948.
«Television won't last because people will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box every night.»
Darryl Zanuck, movie producer, 20th Century Fox, 1946.
«While theoretically and technically television may be feasible, commercially and financially it is an impossibility, a development of which we need waste little time dreaming.»
Lee DeForest, American radio pioneer and inventor of the vacuum tube, 1926.

I don't want to go. I'd rather die than slowly suffocate in a bunker, while freezing to death, while my face and lower jaw fall off from the nuclear fallout created by every nuclear device on earth eventually melting down and general loss of control over dangerous pollutants and debris. Put a fan in your attic and hang out for a few minutes and you'll understand what would happen if we did have a global catastrophe.
p.s. I'm not a goth. And no one likes goths.edit on 13-8-2011 by Thestargateisreal because: (no reason given)
Yes I know,.

doing the same thing over an over and expecting different results?
While that is not the real definition, I must say this search into planet X
resembles that action..Insane
Do those of you that believe this x planet is a possibility, really think the Hundreds
of amateur astronomers GLOBALLY wouldnt be able to locate this object if it were real?
lets at least try to think logically here, we can see all the planets in our solar system..
Why can we not see this x planet..Maybe it is being cloaked by the alien race right?
Please try to process a real possibility..not mythology.
Come on logic on ATS? Are you new here :p
