So, the Earth is still spinning, the birds are still chirping, civilization has not (completely) broken down... and people are still idiots.
The ancient Mayans were a civilization that never actually predicted a cataclysmic event leading to mass extinction, but rather decided that it was probably okay to stop counting time once they reached a point about 5,000 years into the future. However, western society has an obsession with sensationalizing hysteria, and creating substance from speculation.
How much does it suck to be a doomsday prepper? Those poor fools who quit their jobs, turned their houses into fortified bunkers, and spent their entire live savings on bottled water, canned tuna, and freeze-dried produce... Boy do they have powdered egg on their faces!
While the state of our societal fabric may be unraveling, the end of days will not occur anytime soon.
