Default The world as we know it might end in 2012

tl;dr
Astronomers are predicting a massive solar storm will destroy the world's power grid in a few years, leaving us without many of the things we take for granted.

I'm kinda scared and excited at the same time.

Relax, Ryu. They're just trying to sell a story.

I suppose. But global disasters always feel like a huge cop-out.

The hype surrounding Y2K was a let down and I can only hope this 2012 thing will be the same thing. People are scared of the unknown and that's all.
