It’s been a tough month for anyone who plans their life around unreliable predictions.
First, horoscope addicts had their beliefs rattled by a shift in the stars.
Now it seems that the “End of Days” might be off too.
It seems that the conversion of the Mayan calendar to the Gregorian calendar is not as accurate as previously thought.
Yes, non-believers, some actual thought went into picking out the date on which the world might, possibly, maybe, sort of end.
It turns out that the original 2012 prediction might be off by a smidge. Assuming, of course, that you consider 50 to 100 years to be a smidge.
Good news, right?
Now we can go back to our daily lives confident in the fact that we have no idea when the world will end.
With the certainty of our imminent demise gone can things go back to normal? Will the world still turn now that it’s not ending?
Does this affect the accuracy of other scheduled apocalypses as well? Specifically, is the zombie apocalypse off as well?
And more importantly, can you get your deposit back for “End of the World as We Know It: Dooms Day Bash 2012″?
So many questions, to which we may never know the answers.
…although, your probably not getting your money back.
