As most people have herd, the Myans of ancient times predicted that the year 2012 would be the end of the world. Earth’s poles would shift, ‘Planet X’ would return, solar storms will torch our planet and kill us all, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria… With it being less than three years before this fateful day (12/12/2012 or 12/21/2012, if you want to mark your calendar) it might be time to start stocking up on solar storm resistant seeds and laying in a supply of ammo to kill the other survivors, if there are any after we get our celestial clocks cleaned. Or… Maybe everyone should take a look at the ‘dire warnings’ and see if this anything to them. The nice people over at Information Is Beautiful has made us this handy chart to do just that. I’ll let you make up your own mind as to if the world is coming to an end in 2012, but I can tell you that I won’t be cashing in on my long term investments any time soon because it it.
