Are you reading this?

Of course you are and that means that the Mayan calendar was wrong. The prediction was that the world would end today and 12 percent (25 million) of Americans believed it.

The Mayans claimed that on December 21 2012, a 5,125-year cycle known as the Long Count supposedly comes to a close. This all started in 3114 BC when the countdown began. Since then there have been 13 baktuns or periods of 5,125 years. They believed that the end of the thirteenth baktun would be a milestone and would spell astronomical disasters ranging from explosive storms on the surface of the sun to a galactic alignment that could trigger a reversal in Earth's magnetic field.

If you still have power to your house then the storms haven’t happened and if you are not stuck to the ceiling then the magnetic field is intact.

People throughout the world invested in bomb proof shelters to protect themselves, they stocked up on dried foods to ensure survival and many flocked to Bugarach In France because they believed that aliens will come out of the nearby mountain to rescue them. As they exit from their shelters later today and find the world is still there outside, these folks are going to look rather stupid.

Mind you, the world might still be here but with all the rain that England is getting at the moment, it could well be time to stock up on some wood to build an ark!
