Well, here we are at Dec. 21, 2012. Today is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. But it's also, if mythology connected to the Mayan calendar is to be believed, the last day ever (which would make it even shorter, come to think). So if the world really is ending today at 6:12 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, let's go out in style: with a song.
Happy end-of-the-world solstice day!
