Vita.mn's Best of 2012 issue comes out Dec. 20 -- and that's not a day too soon. According to some interpretations of the Mayan calendar and certain Hollywood movies, the world will come to an end the very next day, on Dec. 21, 2012. Damn it!

Guess there's only one thing for Vita.mn readers to do: List the best and worst things that happened -- locally and nationally -- in 2012, the ultimate year on Earth. Go to the following lists and contribute your top 10s picks before Sunday, Dec. 9. Note: Once you hit "Submit" on a list, your answers are final.
