I enjoy Hoaxes ^.^

In the dictionary

deception: an act intended to trick people into believing something is real when it is not

and my most favorite hoax is the end of the world in 2012

Info from Wikipedia

Since Calendar Round dates can only distinguish within 18,980 days, equivalent to around 52 solar years, the cycle repeats roughly once each lifetime, and thus, a more refined method of dating was needed if history was to be recorded accurately. To measure dates, therefore, over periods longer than 52 years, Mesoamericans devised the Long Count calendar.

The Mayan name for a day was k'in. Twenty of these k'ins are known as a winal or uinal. Eighteen winals make one tun. Twenty tuns are known as a k'atun. Twenty k'atuns make a b'ak'tun.

The Long Count calendar identifies a date by counting the number of days from August 11, 3114 BCE. But instead of using a base-10 (decimal) scheme like Western numbering, the Long Count days were tallied in a modified base-20 scheme. Thus 0.0.0.1.5 is equal to 25, and 0.0.0.2.0 is equal to 40. As the winal unit resets after only counting to 18, the Long Count consistently uses base-20 only if the tun is considered the primary unit of measurement, not the k'in; with the k'in and winal units being the number of days within the tun. The Long Count 0.0.1.0.0 represents 360 days, rather than the 400 in a purely base-20 (vigesimal) count.

There are also four rarely-used higher-order cycles: piktun, kalabtun, k'inchiltun, and alautun.

The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar forms the basis for a New Age belief, first forecast by José Argüelles, that a cataclysm will take place on or about 21 December 2012, a forecast that mainstream Mayanist scholars consider a mis-interpretation.

end of info

Some nutjobs or alike stated that the legendary planet X, a planet 5x more than earth, revolves between two solar systems, ours and some other one. The cycle takes about 3600 years to complete and apparently, the mayan calendar predicted its next return in the end of their Long Count Calendar. The planet will pass very close to Earth that will cause some serious polar shifts due to the massive gravitational pull of planet X which results into rapid weather changes, unbalanced flow of lava resulting to massive volcanic eruptions, tidal waves.... basically your typical apocalyptic destruction of the world. It was also stated by the nutjob that the estimated survivors of the entire human race would only be 10%. and 75% of that 10% will die from hunger, sickness, internal conflict and some other reasons that i cant remember.

Well there you have it.... please post more hoaxes for me so that everyone asides me will find out how many more people who seriously craves for attention ^.^
