The end is nigh(t)

Tonight at 9:11pm will be the end of the world ... talking about the end of the world (at least for a little bit)!

An artist's rendition of tonight's event

Today, 21 December 2012, is regarded as the end-date of a 5125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, and according to all the hyperbole around the 'end of the world' prophecies, our demise will occur at 11:11 UTC time (which is 9:11pm on the Gold Coast, Queensland).

So, whether it be a disaster of fire, water, wind or whatever - don't forget to pickup your free Community Disaster Guide from any Gold Coast City Council customer service office or library before the end of today :)
