Nibiru -- Big planetary fun
Have you heard about Nibiru? Well, neither had I, and that shows how out of the mainstream both of us are. Nibiru was [revealed] in 1976 by Zecharia Sitchin, author of numerous works of speculative [research]. In the Sitchin universe, Nibiru orbits the sun every 3,600 years, and is inhabited by Anunnaki, who visit Earth from time to time to
- (a) stir up trouble
- (b) give us some hints of the technological advances possible if only we would stop shooting each other, or something.
As you may not know, the Mayan calendar predicted that Nibiru will pass close to the Earth on Dec. 21, 2012, causing havoc and making movie stars scream at each other. This is all pre-documented in a movie called "2012," which has set up a Web site (instituteforhumancontinuity.org) that purports to give valuable advice about what you should do when Nibiru hits Earth, including a wonderful "survival lottery" for which you can sign up, so you'll have a chance to be one of the lucky ones. Now, Sony Pictures is mentioned on the Web site, as is the movie "2012," so that should be a tip-off for people who pay attention to the small print. More>>
