(Fucking) probably (shit), if not totally correct, pretty close, yes. But same could be told about ZetaTalk.
-And there is not the slightest humor or joke in this for me, and (I hope) nor for you-

My honest simpaties and best wishes to the japanese people.

Mayans are supposed have their calendar run out in December 2012... Its still 2011 last I checked.
...and just cause nobody drew up a calendar to follow the current one doesn't mean squat...

Just to be a little evil... I guess Japanese girls will be a little hotter than usual. Sorry, very bad taste... I loved Japanese culture old and new.. but I worry lot about the country now.

Diego, no joke on my part either.

I feel sorry for the other living species with whom we share this planet.

Too much fearmongering. The following website has a nice technical explanation of what's going on: http://mitnse.com/ (it's in blog format, so start reading the bottommost article).

Regardless of the outcome, nuclear power is still the best option for the future. Heck, the Fukushima power plant is doing remarkably well after being hit by a magnitude 9 earthquake, a tsunami, a fire, aftershocks ... and it has ~40 year old reactors, newer designs are even safer.

I am confident that the Japanese will sort it out, they're very capable.

Depends on the "expert" doing the calculation. For Calleman it would be October 2011. If so, he might have been off by just 7 months.

Are you really optimistic or just ironic? Seems to me Fukushima can't be saved in any way whatsoever, despite those "50 heroes".

That's what happens when people's only source of information is MSM.
