“Shit it’s almost 2012.”
As we head into the holiday season, most of us prepare for Christmas because, you know, booze and presents. But in the holiday fervor it’s easy to forget that 2012 is just around the corner. 2012. Can you believe that? That’s one more than 2011, and incalculably far from 2013 since the world is going to end in 2012. So enjoy the fun facts while you can, before Mayan Ghosts throw a dark planet at our magnetic poles or some shit.
