The December 2012 deadline has no scientific basis whatsoever (and in fact the Mayans never predicted anything would happen on that date, they just didn't make any more calendars to go after then so everyone just 'assumed' they meant it was the end of the world).
As for solar flares, they are very real. Every year there is damage done to technology on and around earth due to solar activity, including a few years back when satellites were downed over Canada and a few land-based technology instruments were also knocked out.
Whilst December 2012 has no meaning, January 2013 is precdicted to be a serious 'peak' time for solar activity, so we'll have to wait and see what happens there.

the solar flare thing is possible - they had similar on future weapons show as its an electromagnetic field thingy (mr physics here)
maybe the rest does sound a load of pish but theres never smoke with out fire!

Lol@ "why not finish the month.
they wouldn't have used the same months as us.
They would have had no concept of "December"
I heard they just ran out of paper.
