## I need to check my horoscope now to see if it is brown sock day or a blue sock day. If you were a trendsetter and leader of fashion like myself, you would know that it's all the rage to wear odd-colored socks at the moment... Note: (a) By "odd-colored socks" I mean a different color on each foot, not a disturbingly strange color and (b) I've been doing this unintentionally for years, so it's gratifying that the fashion world has finally caught up with me (I find that if I hold onto my clothes long enough they come back into style ... at least, that's what I keep on telling myself :-)

I didn't know about that app (it had never struck me to look for one -- when will I learn?) I will take a look at it as soon as I get a spare moment

Good one Dave! (Maybe this should be the first of our EE Tools apps :-)

I was wondering why no one seemed to be commenting on this blog -- it made me feel sad -- and then I realized that I had neglected to click the "Follow Comments" button and there were a bunch of comments waiting for me :-)

The non existent prophecy is really spot on. For example: "Chaos will happen all over the world which will lead to death of millions of living creatures." This describes exactly what will happen on Dec 21 2012. Because this is what happens everyday, provided you use a less apocalyptic definition(see Gleik) of the word "chaos" and count all living things (that are dying). I need to check my horoscope now to see if it is brown sock day or a blue sock day.

I wonder if anything noteworthy happened the last time the world ended, on 11 August, 3114 BC. I also wonder how large the EOTW industry will be this year. Like you said, lots of slime-balls coming out of the woodworks to help people part with their money. BTW, did you know there's a Mayan Calendar app for iOS? Nothing sleazy or sensational about it -- it simply implements the Mayan Long Count Calendar, and revenues go to support the non-profit Maya Exploration Center.

I for one will not believe the EOTW is real until I see an iPhone App for it.

If the world does end on 21 December 2012 my guess is that everyone (in the western world, anyway) will be too busy with the pre-christmas rush of shopping and parties to notice......
