Though I do not believe in 2012 at all it kind of creeped me out when I watched some documentary about the earth. Apparently there is a trend of mass extinctions every 30 million years because the earth around that time floats through a large asteroid field (not sure if that is exactly it, but something a bout a busy place in space). Also LA is overdue for some earthquake as is Yellowstone overdue for a volcanic eruption. And it has been more than 30 million years since mass extinctions occured. Actual facts here.
But whatever. Screw 2012.
