Apparently some people think the end of the Mayan Long Count means the world will come to an end today.
Predictions of apocalypse are as regular as …. whatever passes for clockwork these digital days.
Quite why the end of a calendar means the world should end I’ve no idea. You just replace your old calendar with a new one.
And the long calendar didn’t predict the fate of the Maya. Their civilisation collapsed about 1,000 years ago, though their descendants survive and still speak Mayan languages.
World’s End is a pub on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
REM sang about the end of the world.
The World Ends?
Not with a bang, not with a whimper.
I feel fine.
