So today is 188.8.131.52.1 (according to the Mayan calendar) and, as 184.108.40.206.0 is fast approaching, it is time to really start our prepping.
Time to start making lists of vital provisions (chocolates, cheese and crackers, champagne) and equipment (sparklers, noisemakers, and a variety of weapons to use on anyone who blows a vuvuzela), and lists of all those you want to spend the end of the world with (so lucky it falls on a Friday, so we can sleep off our hangovers on the 22nd).
Get cracking, folks! Only 19 days to go!!
