The World Is Still Alive

Surprise, surprise, the end of the world was predicted for today and it looks like we're going to make it. The clock has struck midnight in the eastern time zone, with 3 hours left to go here in Vancouver on the west coast. Maybe I should have waited before posting this because I don't want to jinx anything by proclaiming the world did not die today. We still have 3 hours for the left coast to sink into the Pacific, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that the sun will come up tomorrow.

The real winners in the failure of this one apocalyptic prediction are the proponents of the world ending in December 2012 at the end of the Mayan calendar. Those are the people who have to feel vindicated. They could not have liked this one lone kook encroaching on their turf. The world can only end once, and there is surely no definitive agreement with the apocalyptic movement.

  1. Aah Iceman, did not the world come to an end a few weeks back on election night? A cataclysmic disaster "the nakba" of the party of Count Ignition-off and the fair Justin of Trudeau.
    Why the world has not stopped spinning and started to turn in the opposite direction it is probably only waiting for the HOC to be called to order.
    Perhaps Barry of Obama can help out after he finishes off the Middle East with his brilliant insights.
    I am here on the left coast also but we still seem to be living well on turtle island.
    The Mayan calendar? well as big as it was there is no "reset button" on it as they have been out of business for what a 1000 years or so I guess no one ordered up a new calendar
    I don't know how interesting it is that Davey Suzuki said in 1990 that we had 10 years to fix the world or it was all over for us? I have his article in Harrowsmith stating his end of the world moment. Silly. Little. Man.
