Could some guy in france get so scared that it was the rapture, that he burns down his house which burns then next house, which burns a car...yadda yadda yadda... that gets to close to a nuclear reactor and starts a chain reaction of nuclear reactions.
I know I'm going to extremes, but I think there is more to self fulfilling prophecies and am scared to think what might happen when billions of people around the world think they're going to die on a certain day.

Anyway, when the christian calender was created there was some cock up reguarding leap years or somthing. This put us somthing like 4 years behind what we 'should be'. Does this end of the world date thing take that into account?

In 1999, I found the hysteria amusing. My boss at the time was so concerned that he bought $100s of survival stuff, and I told him I thought that nothing was going to happen.
How this relates to an ancient Mayan prediction is not clear to me, since the y2k thing was totally spontaneous and modern day people made it up.
I think that the 188.8.131.52.0. Baktun date, 21122012, may just be an astronomical event, and no more.
