If we had feasible cryostasis and had somewhere to go, ark ships might be viable, otherwise they're just coffins for the soon to be dead.
As for all this Mayan nonsense, personally I wish something would happen, maybe not a catastrophe, but a shift in consciousness, the aliens in the corner of my eye finally stop being rude and introduce themselves, something, but in all likelihood the day will come and go like any other and the only thing that will happen is some whack-job cult will commit mass suicide.
