Well, its here guys.  It's the end of the world.  Have you looked outside? Its sunny, and beautiful, and not at all fireballs of death.  So, okay, I hear that technically it's supposed to end at 11:11 UTC (which for those of us who don't know what time that is, (like me, who had to look it up) is coordinated universe time)  WHAT?? I looked it up, and when it was 11:11 UTC it was 4:11 AM here in Utah, therefore, you all survived the end of the world. Congrats... well, that is, unless you didn't.  In which case... I'm truly sorry, and will miss you a lot. :)
