It's December 21st and the hellfire flames of the Mayan apocalypse aren't sparking in the slightest. What gives?! For starters the Mayans didn't actually predict an end of the world, but more of a "global spiritual transformation"... or some kinda weird ju-ju like that.
Of course, this isn't the first time that mankind has predicted the end of days. Just last May religious nut Harold Camping predicted the Rapture, only to flub and say he had the wrong date when jack squat happened. As the Apocalypse When chart shows, there's been lots, and I mean LOTS of times that the Doomsday came and went without a peep.
