2012

Prophecies from Nostradamus and the Maya of Central America are believed to be linked with the year 2012. After that so little had been said, sometimes just nothing. So, this is the time the human kind has been waiting and talking about for centuries, and we have the honor to be alive for it. Embrace it until the end.

Live your prophecy.

The five most disruptive technologies of 2012
The most disruptive technologies in 2012 include energy storage technology no one thought would ever work, gesture-based interfaces that will make touch screens look as quaint as floppy disks, and computers and connectivity so cheap they’re adding billions more people to the internet.

Mayan apocalypse 21/12/12: ‘The planets are aligned the sun will activate, let the deluge come’


An end-of-the-world party in Moscow was charging $1,000 for entry. Still, you can’t take it with you.
