21st December 2012 is the end of a five, 125 year long cycle in the Mayan long count calender. This has led some to believe that the end of the calender signifies the end of the Mayan fourth world. The fourth world being the world that the gods built for humans to live in.
Well, if they are right then not too many people will be reading this after today.
But, if by the end of the world they mean the end of society as we know it - then I look forward to meeting you hunter gather types in the hills,
Happy Christmas everyone!
