What Time Was the World Supposed to End?

The Mayan calendar predicts the "end" to come today, but at what time? Here's the answer, which may surprise you.

If you're hoping for something eventful to happen to mark the end of the world, as foretold by the Mayan calendar, you may have already missed it.

The end of the world was supposed to happen on Friday, Dec. 21, 2012, at 11:11 UTC, which is 6:11 a.m. for everyone living on the East Coast.

What did you do to "celebrate" at the time? Are you having an end of the world party in Exeter tonight? Tell us about it in the comments!

You're a big dumb stupid idiot because you're posting things and you don't even know what you're talking about. Archeologists have found at least five peices of mayan literature that have said the end of the calendar is the end of the world, so don't turn this into something its not you fucking dumbass, there was more evedince than you thougt

They said that the world was going to end in 2006 and did it end? No so why do you think you should believe what they say right now. I was really depressed about that when i was little but now i know it's bullshit.
