Since today (in this time zone, at least) is supposed to be the End of the World (yet again), I thought that it would be fun to just kick back and laugh at some of the bullshit that some people believed would be happening today.
I think that the very best way to do this is to watch Penn & Teller's hilarious take down of some of the wackier 2012 Apocalypse bullshit, which first aired on July 16, 2009.
None of the predictions mentioned above ever stood a chance of really happening, of course. And now that December 21st has finally arrived (and now passed, in some time zones) and nothing has happened, many of the doom criers will claim that we were spared by some kind of divine power(s), then they will move the Date of Doom to another (future) date. Others will try and claim that something has, in fact, happened, only it happened on a higher plain of existence that cannot be comprehended by the human mind/spirit at this time.
This "Higher Plain of Existence" excuse is the most laughable to me, as it turns the End of the World as We Know It on December 21st into just another ordinary day on planet earth. Look people, life altering events occur daily, we just don't recognize them as such until we have the opportunity to look back on them with some life experience perspective (i.e. YEARS LATER). Give me a break.
If all this wasn't enough of a proper commemoration of the December 21, 2012 non event, I also heartily recommend watching Lars Von Triers's Melancholia, as it's a great Planet X movie, and/or Roland Emmerich's 2012, for obvious reasons.
