The Mayans thought the world was to end today, but we're all still here. Last night (in the Pacific US time zone. where I'm located) photos from the other side of the globe, including some from Japan and New Zealand, began appearing on Facebook, saying that they are still there (as it was already the next day on that side of the globe). It seems as if the Mayans didn't know about the different time zones in the world. Tomorrow has already begun in some parts of the world, so obviously we're all still here.
The song "It's the End of the World As We Know It" began playing in my head awhile ago. I haven't heard it in years, but I'm now wondering how many people were thinking of this when today approached, whenever that was for each person (again, the time zone differences around the world).
The world hasn't ended.
