5. No need to practice your "duck and cover" or bring a helmet with you to your new year's bash. According to NASA, the world will be just fine in 2012 (we're assuming these guys know their space stuff). The pros say there is no planet due to collide with ours, no gigantic asteroid aiming for earth, and no predicted sudden ice age.
Have a safe, healthy and above all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
