What with this new-fangled Internet and all, December 21 is now A Thing. Common citizens know all about it. Except that most of them don't know anything, really, about it--only that it's supposedly the end of the world: Mayan calendars; scarifying prophecies; Ascension; 99-on-the-Richter-Scale earthquakes; Galactic alignment; magnetic pole-flips; physical pole-flips; monster solar flares... Oh. And Nibiru.
Now, I lived in San Francisco for many years, and I know very well that those people will use any excuse to PARTY! I currently live across the Bay in Oakland, and it's just about as bad. Though different. So, in practical terms, in my case, I expect something resembling Halloween, New Year's Eve, 4th of July, and the Gay Pride Parade--all glued together with End-of-the-World angst and hallucinogenics.
Indeed I'm not looking forward to the 30-mile commute home that day. Luckily I get off work at 2:30pm and will be able to make a headlong dash home out front of most of the insanity. I do plan to get in the house and lock the doors.
OR... It could just turn out to be another Y2K.
So, what are you expecting?

I'm thinking that we just saw the begining of a major problem here in America. A real begining to provide the Federal government with sweeping powers to confiscate guns. Thus sending us down a path of tragedy and turmoil. That's what 12-21-12 means to me. Another begining of the end. Just like 2001...
