If the "Doomsday" moment is taken as the Mayans' calendar ending of the winter solstice 2012, then that moment will be December 21 2012, at 11:11 GMT - which will be a nice way for the majority of Americans to enjoy their breakfasts on that day.

As I'm in New Zealand, it will happen for me at 11 minutes past midnight, just into 22 December. I think I'll stay awake for that, wearing my tin helmet.
Deja vu - I remember well back at the beginning of this century, when I was on IRC chatting real-time with a group of Americans, at my midnight. New Zealand was one of the first countries to see the new millenium in, and everyone waited with bated breath to see if my pc was to die from the millenium bug. At 5 seconds past midnight, I wished them all "Happy New Year" - to which the response from one of them was "Oh crap!"
Might not be quite the response I'd get this time...
