    That's a new one. The crook goes into the victim's home, and the crook calls 911 for help. Really weird.

    Not as weird as you might think.the home owner was a stupid humanitarian. With others he would never have had the chance to call!

    The "world" is going to end? What for? There's nothing wrong with the world, other than being populated by mostly greedy people who trash the earth for profit. This planet will be just fine once we are rid of the warmongering greedy peeps. (and there are over a dozen ancient Mayan calandars, why focus on the only one that ends @2012 silly goose)
