Waking up this morning is going to be extra awkward for some people.
It seems the apocalypse is late; that, or it's just not showing up. It was supposed to arrive yesterday, you see, and more than a few people were eagerly anticipating it, for whatever reason. So when they stretch, yawn and open their eyes to find themselves snug in their beds instead of in a fiery pit or on a cloud in Heaven, I'm guessing they're going to be a little bit disappointed.
I, on the other hand, am relieved. And you should be too. After all, just think of all the incredible things we would have missed out on if the world had ended yesterday. Things like:
- Half-Life 3
- The next Xbox
- Dark Souls 2
- The PS4
- Flying cars
- Flying skateboards
- The end of A Song of Ice and Fire
- World peace
- Watch Dogs
- The Legend of Zelda in HD on Wii U
- Season 3 of the BBC's Sherlock
- Games that look like this
Of course, you could still miss out on these things. You could get hit by a bus before George R.R. Martin finishes his lengthy epic, or Armageddon could arrive after all. You never know.
So what are you looking forward to now that we can be reasonably sure the world will keep on spinning for at least a little while longer?
