Will Anything Crazy Happen (Like a Portal Opening in Sedona) on December 21?

Since we're now a week away from December 21, now would be a good time to sort out everyone's plans.

As you've probably heard, there are people who believe that some sort of Mayan calendar runs out of days, so -- obviously -- the world's going to blow up or something, and we're all going to be dead one week from today.

Everyone's got their own plans, though.

Most of us will show up to work, and go about our business.

Others, like a Sedona man by the name of Peter Gersten, have different plans. Specifically, Gersten plans on jumping off a very tall rock, hoping to land in a "cosmic portal" that will open below.

So, take a good look at the people you see today, and consider that one of them might seriously believe that roughly 7 billion people are going to be dead by this time next week. Unless you're at the top of this mountain in France -- then you're totally fine.

That said, let's take a poll: do you actually think something crazy is going to happen on December 21?
