    Or, if history teaches us anything, it will break everything and you'll have to do a complete re-install...

    Here's some cheer from all the doom and gloom - if the world does end today then you can take some comfort from the fact knowing everyone you've ever hated will be dead as well

    Surely it should be ending at midnight today?

    Anyone else read up on the supposed theories of how it's all going to end? I was looking it up yesterday as my wife had asked and as far as I could tell, the candidates were

    1) Rogue planet returns to the solar system as it does every few hundred years and collides with the Earth. Problem: we'd probably have seen said planet in the sky for the best part of a decade.

    2) Earth and Sun line up with the black hole and the centre of the milky way (or some other nebulous alignment of celestial bodies) and tear the world apart. Problem: the black hole thing happens once a year anyway, the planet alignments are regular and do diddly-squat, and there ain't any scheduled for today anyway.

    3) The magnetic poles flip and somehow that makes it all go wrong. Problem: that happens all the bloody time anyway, and takes thousands of years to complete, and likely only affects compasses. Maybe it's some kind of renaissance-style millenium bug, where all the transatlantic wooden ships crash into harbours as their compasses spin wildly? I don't know, I think this one is mostly based on people being thick and interpreting it as the entire world will spin upside down or the crust itself moves or something equally daft.

    Are there any others that aren't just the plots of bad Roland Emmerich CGI-fests I've not heard?

    Hey, that's a fake!

    If you look carefully at the boat in the foreground, you'll see that the shadow of the mast falls on the water at the wrong angle.
