Did the world just end?

I am composing this message on August 11th 2012, and set this message to be auto-posted on December 21st, 2012 at 11:11 EST.

5125 years ago on August 11th 2012, the first cycle of the Mayan Long Count Calendar started ticking, on August 11 3114 BC. The 12th cycle of the 144,000 day Long Count just completed at December 21st, 2012 at 11:11 AM EST (The moment this should have appeared if the world did not end).

What do you think will happen when Earth lines up with the Center of the Galaxy today, an event that happens every 25,920 years (360 degrees times 72 years)? No, leap years have nothing to do with any of this, Mayan Calendar is based on star positions...

Did the world end, and you are the only one left to read this? Does Internet still exist? Did the New Madrid Seismic Zone cut the US in half in October with a 7.7 or grater magnitude quake? Was there a new Carrington Event? Did the Dollar Die? Was there a good October Surprise? Was there a presidential election?

Hopefully none of those events happened. If the world has ended then let us hope that the 4th Age of Mankind has ended and the new 5th age is one of a new concusiuoness...

How are you spending your End of the World day today?
