2012 when? april 20?
if the end of the world comes on december 21 2012, then it will be the end of the world. if we cause it, then we caused it. if something other than us caused it, then we didn't!
if humans decide to get their act together and change the world for the better between now and 2012 (a conscious shift in global populace from having to being), then it will be because we willed that outcome into existence with sheer tenacity.
2012 has become such a "thing" unto itself, that humans should really wake up and take the opportunity to DO SOMETHING for ourselves, instead of waiting for some unseen force (whatever it may be) to come from the sky and makey all better for us. you know, turn 2012 into something even if it is nothing (in terms of supra-influence from the cosmos).
some people are already working, regardless of what they think dec 21 2012 holds for them. and others sit on their fat narcissistic asses pining over gas prices. cie la vie!
