George Lucas Says the End is Near! by Adam Welsh

How many of these people do you know?  I have at least a couple friends who believe the world is going to end on or about December 23rd, 2012.  Awesome.  And now that George Lucas is on board there will be no shutting them up.  This comes from a meeting Seth Rogan recently had with Lucas and Steven Spielberg.  From torontosun.com...

He recalls, “George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it.

“He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ’My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry...’

“I first thought he (Lucas) was joking... and then I totally realized he was serious and then I started thinking, ’If you’re George Lucas and you actually think the world is gonna end in a year, there’s no way you haven’t built a spaceship for yourself... So I asked him... ’Can I have a seat on it?’

Great question.  I've wondered if people like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs and George Lucas are secretly building spaceships.  If I had that kind of money I'd at least think about it.  So is Old George going crazy here, or are we in big trouble?  What are your thoughts on the 2012 hysteria?
