Actually it is said too be December 12th 2012 that tha earth will end.. 12.12.12. 12/2=6 =666. Just a little Fact.. since no one seems too be getting dates rightt.
Also humans have 46 chromosomes. -23 from each parent. So yeaa.. if we only had 23 chromosomes we would have dis-functioned..Justt sayingg.
