    It depends on the hour too, the Earth experiences 3 days simultaneously every day:

    For two hours every day, between 10:00 and 11:59 (UTC), there are actually three different days observed at the same time in different places. At UTC time Thursday 10:15, for example, it is Wednesday 23:15 in Samoa, which is eleven hours behind UTC, and it is Friday 00:15 in Kiritimati (separated from Samoa by the IDL), which is 14 hours ahead of UTC. For the first hour (UTC 10:00–10:59), this is true for inhabited territories, whereas during the second hour (UTC 11:00–11:59) it is only true if one counts an uninhabited maritime time zone twelve hours behind UTC.
    .............
    The central Pacific Republic of Kiribati introduced a change of date for its eastern half on 1 January 1995, from time zones −11 and −10 to +13 and +14.
    It's awesome how Caroline Atoll got to experience 2011 first before every other landmass in the Earth, while their neighbors Baker and Howland Islands were still in 2010 for another day (estimate).

    I agree 100% Dexenthes. Worrying about the end of the world is futile, and the date--assuming there is a set date of the apocalypse--is not something we will know until it happens. Rather than expending so much energy on useless worrying, people should focus on what they can change.

    I once heard a theory about why each generation seems to want to believe the end of the world will come during their lifetime: it gives their lives meaning. The last generation will be special; it will be the legacy of humanity. Unfortunately, if the world were to end right now I don't think I'd be proud of what we've done or what we'll leave behind.

    A state veterinarian tells NBC that preliminary necropsy results show that the birds died of "multiple blunt trauma to their vital organs."

    I feel the same way. I am a young person and if, knowing all that our ancestors have learned for us, my generation can't produce some positive changes in the world, then why breed?

    It disturbs me when disobeying my life's one true calling (to spread my genetic heritage) is something that I feel I have to do.

    So I was just standing in line at the post office and the guy behind me was trying to convince someone on the other end of his cell phone that "the world is going to end on May 21st, it's all in the Bible."

    Good grief. -.-"

    The world can't end in May! "Final Destination 5" comes out in late August and I can't miss it!

    I've listened to this guy's radio program at work. He hosts a call in show. He is very opinionated and seems to be 100% confident he is right. I will definitely be listening on May 21. I can't wait to hear him backpeddle! This same guy predicted end dates before, which of course never came, but yet somehow this one is supposed to be different, and people blindly follow.

    I'm amazed people still believe this stuff. It has been the 'end times' since the beginning of time!

    PS - If I'm wrong, can I have their stuff?
