Illustration for article titled Introducing Jezebel's 2012 Monthly Apocalypse Index

As we all know, 2012 is the year the world as we know it will cease to exist. The Mayans said so! And so did that one movie with John Cusack. Sure, there are plenty of signs that the apocalypse is not mere months away. But then again, John Cusack wouldn't lie, would he? It's confusing. That's why we have Jezebel's Monthly Apocalypse Index, in which we keep count of the many Signs The Apocalypse Is Nigh as well as the Signs Everything Is Gonna Be Okay. We'll do this on a monthly basis until December, when fire and brimstone will prevent us from going on. Ready?
