For anybody who happens to die on the 21st... It will be the End of the World.
I'm just going to try and survive till Saturday.

I am currenty unsupervised, anyone who knows me will inform you that this will likely lead to trouble.=3
As I grind through the valley of XP, I shall fear no nerf.
Just for some fun, that galactic alignment is actually happening today. Already happened, in fact, about an hour ago if I'm converting the time table correctly. Happens every year, though the best alignment of our lifetimes happened in 1998 - the ecliptic is sliding away from the galactic core every year since then.
Even 1998 was a crappy alignment. It was 8 full moons away from the actual galactic center. This year it didn't even come within 10, and in a few more years it'll be 11. Even from the astrological perspective, ignoring that astronomy doesn't care, that's not a close enough conjunction to even count, the most generous tables don't track anything more than five full moons apart.
However, the REAL fun? The person principally behind this doomsday (as well as failed doomsdays in 2003, 5, 7, 10, and 11) is Nancy Lieder. She has an online Q&A chat session scheduled for the day after her own doomsday prediction.
Now there's confidence for you. Not the fact that she clearly doubts her own prediction, but that she'll brave internet trolls in a poorly moderated environment on the very day of her failure.
