The Maya solar year of 365 days was central to the agricultural cycle, while their ritual year of 260 days was critical for determining auspicious dates. These calendars were carefully designed to synchronize in 52-year cycles, but no effort was made to prevent "drifting" dates. "They didn't care if they didn't have a white Christmas, or if their Fourth of July wasn't in the summer, to put it in our terms," Aveni explained.

I bet some radio station is planning a " War of the Worlds" type broadcast. It would get ratings, but would probably result in jail time.

I'm more worried about human lunacy than any other potential threat. Like most others here, I know tomorrow will be just another day, but it may also bring large-scale pranks, cons, and scams by individuals and groups looking to capitalize on people's fears.
I wouldn't rule out mass suicides or attacks by various cults, or even some other form of mass hysteria (a la Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds" in 1938).
There are a lot of sickos out there just waiting for an opportunity to stir up some mischief. That's what has me mildly worried about 12-21-12.
