That's right. The world is coming to an end, so say your prayers and kiss your butt goodbye.
A nearby star is going to explode in 2012, lighting up the sky like nothing in history. It is just as the Mayan calendar predicted. The end times are nearly here. Fire and brimstone shall be cast upon us by vile aliens as the Earth is immolated just like the prophesies of old so clearly indicated. Why, oh why didn't we listen?
