The Crazy Numbers Around The Mayan Apocalypse
It's December 21st, 2012 and we are all still here right? Maybe we are supposed to wait a little bit longer for the world to end I guess. While we are waiting you should check out some of the numbers around the pending doom that we are all about to face . . . maybe.
Mentalfloss broke down some of the most interesting numbers around the Mayan Apocalypse and it seems even more ridiculous now than ever.
The 'Almighty God' Christian cult has had 100 member arrested for harassing people about the end of the world.
There are supposed to be 72 consecutive days of deadly natural disasters starting today and lasting till the world ends, according to the cult. I don't want to say they are right but with at least seven people dying in today's big snowstorm, I'm a little nervous.
'LiveScience' found five ways that all life on earth could be wiped out today including: Solar Storm, Magnetic Polar Flip, Rouge Planet Collision, Global Digital Blackout and Planetary Alignment With The Center of the Milky Way.
A good survival pod placed underground will run you around $49,000 which is a small price to pay to be the last person left on a ruined Earth.
12 & 14
12% of people think that today will actually mark the end of the world because of the Mayan calendar theory. 14% of people think that the world will end due to some cause in our lifetime.
There is only one camera that will be filming live action of the supposed end of the world today. The Slooh Space Camera is designed to help the public watch for the arrival of mysterious, deadly planets, giant tides, blackouts, and other potentially (and literally) Earth-shattering phenomena.
One is also the exact number of times that people should believe any of this world ending prediction stuff. The odds are good that when the world ends, we will either be long gone or have no idea at all. Either way, enjoy the Mayan end of the world and I'll see you tomorrow ... maybe.
