What tickles me is if for some reason the calander's ending cycle does mean the end of the world, it would be due to a celestial cataclysmic event. Nothing to do with what goes on down here on planet earth at all...yet people still think they can hide or prep for our solar system being on the apex of our galactic center lol! How is hiding in a cave going to protect you from be suspended over a black hole or something of that nature

is it bad that I am hoping something does happen, I would prefer we all die at the same time. I really don't want to die by myself I would much prefer all people die if I have to die so I would rather something happen where every man, women, child die all at the same time. Then the earth can heal itself and make room for the next species to destroy it like man kind has.
Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis and shifts the position of the equinoxes and solstices one degree every 71.5 years. Because the sun is one-half of a degree wide, it will take the December solstice sun 36 years to precess through the Galactic equator (see diagram below). The precise alignment of the solstice point (the precise center-point of the body of the sun as viewed from earth) with the Galactic equator was calculated to occur in 1998 (Jean Meeus, Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997). Thus, the Galactic Alignment "zone" is 1998 +/- 18 years = 1980 - 2016. This is "era-2012."
Jenkins claims he drew his conclusions about the location of the galactic equator from observations taken at above 11,000 feet (3,400 m), an altitude that gives a clearer image of the Milky Way than Maya had access to. Furthermore, since the Sun is half a degree wide, its solstice position takes 36 years to precess its full width. Jenkins himself notes that even given his determined location for the line of the galactic equator, its most precise convergence with the center of the Sun already occurred in 1998, and so asserts that, rather than 2012, the galactic alignment instead focuses on a multi-year period centred on 1998.

Ill only start crapping my pants when I see a thread or reports of world leaders/major players starting to disappear, such as Obama heading to the nearest underground bunker in Denver etc.
By the way where are all the major players at the moment?
