Today’s the big day. The day the world’s supposed to end. Of course, by "supposed to", I mean not supposed to at all. The whole Mayan world-ending apocalypse is based off a gross-misreading of the Mayan calendar. Short explanation: The "ending" is the same as your 2012 calendar ending on December 31st. Your calendar ending doesn’t mean that the world is ending. It just means that it is time to get a new calendar. (For a longer explanation, visit Phil Plait’s Bad Astronomy site.)
Of course, the other world-ending event that is coming soon is Christmas. Ok, this one is only world-ending if you haven’t purchased all of the gifts you need to buy and must visit the mall. After fighting for a parking spot for a half hour or more, you might start wishing the Mayan Apocalypse were real.
My Aloha Friday question for today is: Have you gotten all of your holiday shopping done or will you be braving the Apocalypse that is the mall at Christmas-time?
As a bonus, here’s JibJab’s Year In Review, aka 2012, The End Is Here!
