The apocalypse has come and gone and I was disappointed to say the least. The Mayans had been right about so many things in the past, how did they fumble with the most critical prediction of them all? This whole year has circled around the total demise of human kind. There was a possibility of a zombie apocalypse, which would have been a blast to be apart of. The Frankenstorm Sandy was going to wipe out whole east coast and have us all on an exodus to Mexico like in The Day After Tomorrow. I was even hoping that something would go down in the Middle East that might trigger some end of the world moments. Alas, we got nothing and it is a shame because I had been working on an apocalypse survival kit, but who knows 2012 isn’t over yet so just in case someone did their calculations wrong here are the Essentials: Doomsday Edition.
