Just What We All Needed — The Date Of The Apocalypse

Time to short-sell all those five-year bonds.

Turns out the world will end on December 21, 2012. At least, at that point we’ll have gone off the Maya Long Count Calendar, an ingenius system for measuring epochal spans of time devised by the cryptic Mesoamerican culture. Apparently there are going to be all sorts of disaster movies made over this year and next that will be based on the end of the world on that date. Return of Quetzalcoatl sounds like the best title.
