The end is nigh… or not
Well, so far the world hasn’t ended. Although I’ve had various people tell me it’s actually going to end at 11.11 pm, or 12.11 pm, or when it’s midnight on the 21st in America (though they were a bit vague on exactly which time zone), or….
Actually, what I reckon happened is that the Mayan artist who was drawing the calendar got as far as 2012 and said “Right, I’ve done 4 cycles and if I have to draw one more weird animal in a box I’m going to scream. 2012 is centuries away, I’m sure they’ll find some other mug to add a few more cycles before then. I’m off to paint a sunset.”
