Since the world didn't end today (lol), what is going to be the next big hyped up "non event" never to occur but draw so much attention? Thoughts?

I am sure there will be a few cults, and some out there groups that will pick some dates out here and there. But I don't see any set in stone dates. I am sure 2013 will be full of nut jobs.
Lol yah, the one thing this world isn't short of, is "nut jobs".

The majority of the people on this site don't prep because of what the mayans did or didn't say :)
No, but I mean in general. Lord knows you can't turn on the tv without seeing a program about 2012. I'm curious, since it's all over, what other doomsday prophecy is going to be hyped up and have so many tv shows made about it.

Well, I don't know about anyone else, but I am glad nothing happened. The end of the world would have sucked big time!

I did notice that Winter Storm Draco was responsible for seven deaths, tragically -- so for seven poor souls the end of the world WAS today. Sad but true.

I am glad we are still here. Catastrophic events are highly overrated.

Could A 'Solar Maximum' Event Spark Food Riots And Meltdowns? (One Respected Scientist Says Yes!)

If Earth is struck by a large solar flare, some in the scientific community believe:
The planet will be hit with a widespread loss of power.
Air travel would be grounded.
Nuclear plants would be crippled and without sufficient back-up power, dozens could meltdown.
Satellites would be disabled, causing a serious loss of communication in all areas (military and civilian).
Food and medicine would be in short supply, setting up the potential for food riots within days of an outage.

The peak time for the next big flare is sometime between now and the end of 2013

Solar Events are possible for a period of several years every 11 years. Its just part of the natural cycle of the sun. Back in the 1800's they had such an even that would have caused total havoc today but since it simply shocked telegraph operators...burnt up some telegraph lines/Poles nobody really noticed much! Today it would have been a SERIOUS SHTF EVENT!!

We are due for the maximum of the solar cycle in 2013 but since this cycle is soooo very weak to start with there isnt much of a chance to get anything noteworthy out of it.
BUT! Since Nasa and most of the scientific community has a .0001 % accuracy rate with predicting anything in the solar system you never know what might pop up! Anyone saying its going to happen definatley is about as accurate as the 2012 crap!

I've seen every single sunspot for the last 4 solar cycles thats visible and believe me....Cycle 24 is a total disappointment ! A Wimp...A Wuss!...A Limp Wristed Wannabe!
