Sup Travellers?! If the Vikings were right then we should all die today. The earth is supposed to crumble beneath the sea as the gods including Thor, Odin, and Loki fight it out in an epic battle for superiority. This may just be a whole lot of mythology for most people but some people actually believe that this battle will actually happen today. Experts from the Jorvik Viking Center, which is currently running its annual Viking festival in northern England, claim that the end of times as predicted in Norse mythology will be today.

The prediction is based on Norse folklore that Ragnarok will happen after three freezing winters with no summers in between. The organizers of the Viking festival say that they're pretty sure the god Heimdallr blew the mystical Gjallerhorn on Nov. 15 as "a portent of doom," marking the start of a 100-day countdown to the Norse apocalypse, reports the Independent

"Ragnarok is the ultimate landmark in Viking mythology, when the gods fall and die, so this really is an event that should not be underestimated," the festival's director says. Two human survivors will remain to populate the world, but if your name isn't Liv or Livtrasir and you don't dwell in the underworld, you're out of luck.

I guess the Viking apocalypse is now just another failed prediction like the Mayan apocalypse. The day is still young and there is a still a chance that the gods could fall from the sky at any minute and fight it out to the death sending the earth down into a watery grave. But I think that that's hardly likely going to happen anytime during the day's commute. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
