Aren't we supposed to be freaking out about this? Sacrifice a gerbil, smoke some drugs or build a bunker? What are you doing on 12/12/12?

Our Gregorian calendar is just one of many... Besides, whatever the date, as Charlie Brown once explained, it's already tomorrow  somewhere else!  Right, Franco?   :;):

And if brimstone and hell fire should fall upon the Ozzies and Kiwis... twenty hours is plenty of time to grab a few essentials, back up our files, and batten down the hatches.  :cool:

Well, I'm prepared for a Mad Max style post-apocolyptic world. Got my butt-less chaps and feather boa at the ready.
But seriously, I'm a bit of a prepper. I don't really expect 12/21 will amount to much, but there are potentially bad times on the horizon. It's sort of a hobby of mine.

I spent yesterday coping with people freaking the **** out.

There seriously needs to be more drug smoking and gerbil sacrificing going on out there.

Stupid, stupid holidays.
