Just imagine the case of a tsunami being generated today due to an earthquake, out of pure coincidence with the date...

Even a major portion of the non-believers of doomsday would start doing the last things they wanted to do!

Off late, the doomsdayists had several instances to spread panic -

Nibiru, Elenin, and finally the Mayan Calendar. I think Nibiru was the scariest of them all, if you happened to read about it and watched some of those YouTube clips.

And the latest joke is the movie 2012 !! Dang!! I also went on to think that the world must have ended when I woke up today, and I must be waking up in some other world, however on my way to office, the dust and the traffic jams brought me back to reality :P
And I am still as Broke !!

Something of that sort did happen in a village in TN.

As per a local news channel, the villagers were literally scared and felt doomed when electrical items in their house hold started to burst at 4:30 a.m. yesterday! Happened in most of the houses and all of them lost their tv's, fan's etc.

Poor folks were scared like anything and finally they found that the cause was just high voltage current and nothing to do with dooms day!
