OMG, It's 12/12/12

The graffiti says it all.

This is one of those days of supposedly great portent, 12/12/12. Something is supposed to happen today, but what? Hopefully this will be a day of good things, good happenings, good memories.

A "scary" warning on Pensacola's Graffiti Bridge?

Some people believe this is an apocalyptic day. Or is that supposed to be on 12/21/12? Gee, I hope not. I kind of like this world, flaws and all, and hope it stays around a good long while. Just sayin'...

Another warning on the Graffiti Bridge?
