The End is Nigh!

2009-11-17 22:52:20.982052+00 by petronius 1 comments

Just got back from seeing the cheerfully destructive 2012, which is big, dumb and a lot of fun. The premise is that a solar cycle is producing so many neutrinos that it is heating up the Earth's core with unpleasent effects. Then I wondered about how the Mayans knew about neutrinos. But one of my favorite sites, Lilek's Bleat has the real skinny on how 2012 came to represent the end of history.
