How Baltimore celebrities would spend their last day on Earth [Pictures]
What if the Mayans were onto something? What if Friday, Dec. 21, really is The End?
Well, for one thing, it means most of us have some serious planning to do. If Friday will be the last day of life on Earth (at least as we know it), how would you spend it? Would you try that bungee jump you've been putting off all these years? Tell the bosses what you really think of them? Binge on Tastykakes?
We put that very question to a host of area celebs, and got a surprising range of answers. Clearly, they've been giving this some thought.

"I'd put my wife and adult kids in the car, as well as the poodle, and high-tail it back to Baltimore, pick up my mother at Broadmead, and see if we could get a table at The Milton Inn -- after I went for a long last run on the rail trail (Sparks to Parkton). I'd then be half-dead already, with a last supper to finish me off. If the roads were blocked and I couldn't get home, I might find a bar, invite everyone I know and give my final performance of 'The Impossible H.L Mencken,' who said, 'In the long run all battles are lost, and so are all wars.'"
