Print Your Own Terminator: Maybe 2012 is The End of the World
2012 is the year the world will end, if you are to believe the looneys who are convinced that because the Mayans didn’t bother to include 2013 on their calendars, it means Armageddon.

Now you can be a mayor of your own miniature city, thanks to the SimCity 2000 tabletop play set. Using Google Sketch-up, architect Michael Curry aka Skimbal created replicas of the buildings in Simcity 2000. Curry says that he based the models on his “memories of playing”, so they may not look exactly like their in-game equivalents, but they’re accurate enough for fans of the simulation series to want to reticulate splines in real life.
