Are You Part of the Doomsday 10 Percent?

A new poll has found that almost 15 percent of people on the planet think the world is going to come to an end during their lifetime. What's even more bizarre is that a full 10 percent of people worldwide think the Mayan calendar points to it ending right here in 2012. Are you one of them? If so, why aren't you out in the streets right now with your "The End Is Near" sign, trying to warn us that we'd better tie up all the loose ends in our life vis-à-vis burning in hell or crossing items off of our bucket list. One thing is for sure: If 12-21-2012 comes and goes, and we are all still here, we are going to come up with a Mayan calendar-like scheme that predicts the world will explode in 2424 and use it to pull an epic prank on all the paranoid people of the future.
