There's millions of people going psycho over this 2012 end of the world stuff. There's millions who actually believe it.
Now if you don't believe that the world will end that day, then good. But there's a problem... people/society
I myself believe that on that day (December 21st, 2012), people are going to be extremely paranoid. It might get to a level that even a small prank
can cause a whole city to panic. Therefore be prepared for chaos.
What would you do if the world was actually going to end? I would do what ever the heck pleases me! My point is that for those who do believe, they
can become a threat. They might randomly pull out a gun and shoot people, they will rob people, rape people, etc.
You can't be sure of what will happen. Maybe you have a neighbor that really hates you, he believes that the end of the world will come. Who knows,
he might burn your house down and kill you while he's at it.
Now, i might be exaggerating possibly, but that's just to show the possible threats. It's not just people causing havoc, there will be massive
suicides as well. Especially with all this media and social networking. Someone can simply say that they plan a giant riot somewhere, and other can
join in either because they want to join the cause or just for the heck of it!
If you are a store owner, i suggest that you carry an armed weapon with you on the 21st of December... who knows who can break in!
I'd say that the more populated urban areas could be hit hardest by chaos.
You can never know what the human limits are.
