Remember the Y2K computer disaster that was supposed to take place when the clock struck midnight on January 1, 2000? Well, according to astrologist Jessica Adams, another data related failure might happen again... tomorrow.
"On 12/12/12 the world is feeling the impact of a stressful pattern between Mercury and Neptune, the planet that rules leaks (like Wikileaks) and also flooded computer networks," said Adams.
The astrologer also told news.com.au that she advises everyone to be prepared and back up their computers as anything might happen on this escape-energy infused day.
Sadly, Adams' theory is not the only one predicting disaster for 2012. Many people believe that the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21 might also account for the end of the world, a thesis so widespread that even NASA took the time to deny it by simply explaining the misrepresented fact that the calendar doesn't actually end on that date.
"Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then -- just as your calendar begins again on January 1 -- another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar," wrote NASA as a part of a Q and A titled, Beyond 2012: Why the World Won't End.
According to Adams, we should be worried about December 21 allright, but not because of calendars or the end of the world, instead we should fear a second internet-related affliction.
"On 21/12/12 Jupiter in Gemini (which rules the media) is in a critical pattern. That is also the day Anonymous threatens to attack some internet platforms," said Adams.
That said, there's probably nothing to lose in filling up our thumb drives just in case.
