Date of prediction: unknown; scheduled here 2009-03-18

There is something in some Maya calendar that some people think might mean something. Something apocalyptic, to be as precise as possible, but they weren’t really sure back in 2006 about their predictions. They were sure, however, about the date:

»With humanity coming up fast on 2012, publishers are helping readers gear up and count down to this mysterious — some even call it apocalyptic — date that ancient Mayan societies were anticipating thousands of years ago.

Since November, at least three new books on 2012 have arrived in mainstream bookstores. A fourth is due this fall. (…)

Authors disagree about what humankind should expect on Dec. 21, 2012, when the Maya’s “Long Count” calendar marks the end of a 5,126-year era.«

Does Maya calendar predict 2012 apocalypse?)

So watch out and leave your EOTW stories in the comments.
