2012 is upon us

So, 2011 has come and gone (almost) and we are looking 2012 in the eye. To make one thing absolutely clear: The world will not come to an end in 2012. The Maya never predicted that. Some half-wit with some vaguely New Age inspired idea came up with that.

Check out this Skeptoid episode for details.

In any case: I wish all my readers a happy, relaxed and successful 2012, may all the good things you had in 2011 continue or repeat themselves in an appropriate form and may you all be able to shed the bad things of 2011.

And I leave you with an image of Palenque:
