Talks about the end of the world have once again sparked- mainly due to the fact that the hourglass is running out.

According to the Mayan calendar, the world is goin to end on the 21st of December. This will mark the end of the Mayan 5,125-year-long cycle of the ancient Mayan calendar.

But how exactly will the world end? Will it be with a bang? Or will we just disappear? Here are a few theories.

Earth will collide with a massive rogue planet.

Believers in the Nibiru Cataclysm think Earth will collide with the rogue planet Nibiru, also called Planet X.

If a planet of this size was speeding toward us, “it would be the brightest thing in the sky,” NASA scientist David Morrison tells ABC News.

While he’s likely exaggerating, there’s no way researchers would miss a planet in our solar system. I mean, heck, we can even see rogue planets 100 light years from Earth.

An “alignment of planets” will cause a total blackout.

In this apocalyptic event, the planets align in a way that creates a total blackout on Earth.

“There are no planetary alignments in the next few decades and even if these alignments were to occur, their effects on the Earth would be negligible,” writes NASA.

A massive asteroid will destroy Earth.

In this scenario an asteroid more massive than the one that wiped out the dinosaurs will smash into Earth.

Although a newly discovered 120-foot-wide asteroid that zipped between us and the moon earlier this week may have raised some hairs, astronomers are certain that no threatening space rocks will slam into us in 2012.

A massive solar flare will incinerate Earth.

Solar flares have been known to muck up power grids when they are strong enough. But in this version of the Apocalypse, doomsayers believe a burst of energy from the sun will broil our planet.

While the sun IS nearing the peak of its 11-year cycle scientists say this cycle is “wimpier” than past ones.

A polar shift will result in Earth’s destruction.

Earth’s magnetic field.

A 180-rotation of the Earth on its axis, known as “Polar Shift Theory” because the North and South poles change places, will result in cataclysmic volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis and other disasters.

The Flyer About Jews Needing To Register In East Ukraine Is Thankfully Fake

Western intervention in Ukraine seemed like a distinct possibility yesterday when it was reported that the Jewish community in the eastern city of Donetsk, currently occupied by pro-Russian militants, was given leaflets saying that they would be deported if they did not register with what is calling itself the city’s temporary government. But according to […]

It has come up with nothing after four missions covering nearly 50 square miles of sea.

Preschool Girl Finds A Xanax Pill Inside One Of Her Easter Eggs

Roseville, Michigan, sounds like the most bizarre place in the world as a preschooler brought home a plastic egg that had Alprazolam (the generic brand for Xanax) inside. Maybe it was a gift for the parent since this occurred during an after school activity at Huron Park Elementary where parents and children came together to […]

This Hilarious Vine Compilation Will Make Your Day (Video)

My only real exposure to Vine is through YouTube compilations that people send me. This is because I went to an open mic last year and witnessed an impressively mediocre set only to discover a few months later that the comedian in question had become one of Vine’s top personalities. I’ve been bitter ever since. […]
