Good Luck.
Many people have been preparing months the end the world. There have been stories the Internet the past decade that the world will end December 21. This is the day the “Mayan Apocalypse,” when a Mayan calendar predicts the end us all. However, many other people do not believe the world will end a day or two. The Chinese government has recently arrested 93 people spreading doomsday rumours the Internet. Meanwhile, Russia, Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov sensibly advised people not to buy Armageddon candles. He wrote his website: "Does no one realise that once the end the world comes, candles won't help them?"

So what might happen Friday? The Internet is full stories giant tsunamis and asteroids that will finish us. More common stories are that the black hole the centre of the galaxy will swallow the Earth, or that a planet called “Nibiru” will hit us. NASA says Nibiru was meant to destroy us May 2003, but when nothing happened, “the doomsday date was moved forward December 2012”. NASA adds: “If Nibiru was real…astronomers would have been tracking it for least the past decade, and it would be visible now the naked eye.” English teachers worldwide have told their students they cannot use the apocalypse an excuse not to do homework.
