Oh wait, maybe it's not the end of the world after all. Just the end of Capitalism. Bolivia will be banning Coca-Cola to mark the turn of the Mayan Cycle on December 21st.

David Choquehuanca, the minister in question, explained that Coca-Cola will be expelled from Bolivia on the same day that the Mayan calendar enters a new cycle–December 21. According to Choquehuanca, the date marks the end of capitalism and the start of a culture of life in community-based societies. In order to celebrate that, Bolivia’s government is already planning a series of events that will take place at the Southern Hemisphere’s Summer Solstice on La Isla del Sol, one of the largest islands in Lake Titicaca.

Seems ridiculous when they're going to legalise the consumption of coca leaves, which'd be difficult to prevent anyway, since those who pick them often chew on them. I think they'll miss the sales of Coca Cola as well. The country's impoverished enough as it is. :(
