The World Ends Today

Unless, you know, you're in New Zealand. Or Australia. Or parts of Russia. Or Japan. Or any number of other places. In that case the world ended yesterday. Also, if you're reading this after the fact, the world has already ended.

If I'm the first to break this news to you, I'm sorry, it's probably traumatic for you. But it's ok, it's not the... wrong platitude. Sorry.

The point is, end of the world. It's kind of a big deal. It would be shameful to allow it to pass unnoticed and unnoted.

Anyway, when I talk about the end of the world I tend to think of Exit Mundi which is a bunch of nicely sorted descriptions of how the world might end, and Alma Geddon which is a collection of predictions of when the world will end. For example, did you know that the world also ended on Friday, March 25, 970 CE? Well now you do.


For those who don't know what this is about, it was predicted that the Rapture would happen six months ago, which it totally did (I know, I wasn't expecting it to be invisible either, so it goes), and the end of the world six months later. That prediction still stands, according to the guy who made it.

So, here we are. The world ends today.
