It’s Friday, but it’s not just any Friday. Today is the day the world ended… again.

Once again, we seem to have survived what so many thought would be the end of the world and it was based on the end of the Mayan calendar yet again. While we didn’t see anyone going completely off the deep end (not that I’ve heard, anyway), there was still an obscene amount of stupid reactions to this possible once in a lifetime event.

This time around, we saw schools closing early and score of news outlets asking people what they would do if the world was ending tomorrow. With answers like “I’d rob a bank”, it’s hard to not be cynical about the mindset of people in today’s society. The movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1307068/ does a great job of capturing this cynicism, and the video below says what a lot of us are thinking.

The video actually sums things up very nicely with a mention of NASA’s blog post that points out that we have achieved and discovered so much as with modern science and the Mayans couldn’t predict their own downfall. Either way, we’re here for the foreseeable future, so we can give the Mayans and their calendar a rest.

  1. I thought surely the world will be going to end in 2012, Friday 21. After reading NASA review, I realized that nothing will happen. The information about the Mayan Empire that you have shown in video is very informative.

  2. Hi, just wanted to tell you, I enjoyed this blog post.  I’ve learned so much from this blog.  That topic help me mostly latest news on information technology. Keep on posting.
