Also, consider this, the Mayans did not have daylight savings time, by their calender december 2012 has already passed.
How do you figure that? I don't think DST has anything to do with the Mayan calendar.
Besides. The 2012 thing is actually a confluence of a number of things, the biggest of which is the Galactic Alignment. A couple examples our past Galactic Alignment events are the World Flood and the Ice Age. Combined with the where Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were in the past 25 years, with Venus transiting the Sun soon, and some other interesting celestial transits ... we're catching the emanation of the ending of one Age and the beginning of another. It's simply that with people so vested in the notion of little self that it feels like the world is ending; they are inuiting the dissolution of their dearly-held way of life. We're in an Age where you don't have to physically die to feel the keen edge of mortification and transformation.
Modern startups call this "disruption". We've had many, many of these in the past 50, 25, 10, 5 years ... even in the past 6 and 3 months. Disruptions are coming closer and closer in frequency. Just as an example, Youtube has been taken for granted. We're seeing comments about how, "gee, why didn't they catch this bad behavior of Government/Big Biz/Institutions on camera phones and put it on Youtube? Oh... Youtube wasn't around before 2005." People are taking Facebook for granted. There is more coming this way.
In other words, the "2012 End of the World" has already happened, is happening, and will continue to happen for the next fifty years. Zombie apocalypse is already here, people simply don't know it. It's actually kind of funny watching people do survival prep for something that is already happening.
