Hi everybody! Tomorrow is December 12, 2012: 12/12/12! But don't panic! It's not the day the Mayan calendar says the world will end. That's not until next week.

Last year on 11/11/11, I told you this freaky trick to amaze your friends and family. Add your age to the last two digits of your birth year. In 2011, the answer was 11. For example, if you were 10 in 2011 and were born in 2001 . . .
10 + 01 = 11

But the freak goes on! It works this year too, except the answer will be 12! Try it. It will work with everyone born in this century. For older people born in the 1900s, the answer will be 112. Test it on your friends, your parents, your teachers. Well, it's not really polite to ask your teachers how old they are, so use your best judgment there.

PS. I don't really think the world will end in 2012. I think the world will still be around next year for 13/13/13. Er, wait. Maybe not. But no matter what, I hope all your wishes come true in 2013!

    Hey guys! Nothing to worry about! The world didn’t end! The panic is over!I believe it’s up to God to decide when the world will end. I’ll just keep praying that it will not end for another 9,999,999 years to come!

    A really great trick! I tried it on myself! Heeheheheheh. Oh and can you post one where the answers become like somthing of the year? or the year you were born?

    People in Wisconsin celebrated Aaron Rogers day on 12-12-12. :) I wonder if the NFL has designated any other days…

    My watch went off at 12:12 and I was in class for a moment there was panic but then my teach said thanks for that exciting moment

    I liked that. It was pretty cool. I don’t think it’ll end either. Remember, there is no 13th month, so we have to wait till 2100 to do it all again. 12/12/12 is the last of this century!
