Apocolypse WOW!

I'm by no means an Armageddon enthusiast.  But I'll be the first to admit the potential for dual suns in 2012 is pretty badass.

Earth could be getting a second sun, at least temporarily.
Dr. Brad Carter, Senior Lecturer of Physics at the University of Southern Queensland, outlined the scenario to Betelgeuse, one of the night sky's brightest stars, is losing mass, indicating it is collapsing. It could run out of fuel and go super-nova at any time.

Probably even cooler in real life.
 So let's have a rundown of crazy/creepy/cool phenomena leading up to the End of the World:

The Mayan calendar, the solstice eclipse, droves of dead animals, Zodiac repositioning, global warming, super quakes, CERN's particle collider, snuggies, super flu, the Lethal Weapon relaunch, Sarah Palin running for president in 2012, high tides and mudslides.

As far as apocalypses apocali (thanks Richard) go, I feel like this one's shaping up nicely.

Any other signs of the End Times I've missed?
