The count down has finally started catching up with me. I know deep down that the World will not end now, may be another time, however the blah! blah! about the world ending on 21/12/12 at 16:41 hours is doing its bit to make me thoughtful as ever.

If people are really concerned and 21/12/12 is the beginning of the Golden Era, then I don't see any solace in road rage, people deceiving others, fighting over petty issues, or cheating so that they can be richer.

Cheers! Look forward to a bright 2013 ahead.

Wow, here we can not even predict death of a person and people are busy calculating end of the mankind. Just as a sake of time pass, I was going through the Vedic calender and we have several millions/billions of years for that end of life cycle of the planet Earth

Anyone believing in the End of the world, please donate all your money to some charity.
If you are right, at least you can go in peace with a guaranteed place in heaven
If you are wrong, doesn't matter, you really don't deserve to have your money for believing in a stupid prediction.

Holy Cow! I'll be in a flight when the ticking seconds end tomorow.

Should I be worried?

No no, a flight is the safest place to be in . If you saw the 2012 movie, the ground just keeps collapsing and falling apart everywhere. John Cusack himself has proven that being in a flight is the safest thing to do tomorrow
