Some pessimists have been claiming that today, on the ninth day, of the ninth month, of the ninth year of this millennium, the world will end, but as of now the world’s looking very much alive and well.
Some even believe that at the ninth hour, of the ninth day, of the ninth month, of the ninth year of this millennium, the world will end. So depending on where you are in the world and when you’re reading this, that time may have already passed. Phew!
The belief was that the world would be hit by a killer outbreak of swine flu or we would be sucked into a giant black hole by the Hadron Collider in Switzerland, while theorists in the UK thought that because the emergency services number is 999, the world would be struck by an emergency that we wouldn’t be able to overcome, hence leading to our demise.
Well don’t worry people, only a few more hours and there’ll be another huge gap until the next slightly superstitious date appears on our calendars. I haven’t spoked to soon, have I?
