As a man of science, I know there’s nothing to be afraid of on 12/21/12 besides the things I’m usually afraid of, like robots. The world isn’t going to end just because the Maya Long Count Calendar is starting over, and I know that. That doesn’t mean that there’s nothing that ends tomorrow. Countless things end every single day, and tomorrow is no different. As such, we’ve put together a handy list of nine things that will actually end on the dreaded 12/21/12.
Tomorrow will happen, and almost all of us are going to make it through not only alive, but completely unscathed. Sure, tragedy and mayhem happen each day all over the world, but not because of calendars or made up prophecies. There are a lot of things that will end tomorrow, but the world as we know it is not one of them. These particular things, however, will end.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
