As we all know, the end of the world was Saturday, the 23rd, and as we all also know, we're still here!
It was originally predicted by this dude
and what was supposedly going to happen was a constellation would've been revealed over Jerusalem which means Planet X, a previously unknown planet, has arrived and would have passed by Earth bringing a series of natural disasters with it.
Of course with recent natural disasters such as the wildfires in the northwest, all the hurricanes, an earthquake in Mexico and more, everyone's tensions are high and the world ending actually doesn't seem like it's a too-far-off possibility. So, when a TV emergency broadcast ended with a voice warning "extremely violent times will come" people were nothing short of freaked out.
As it turns out, there is a strong possibility an evangelical radio host who broadcasts at the same time as the alert did not shut off his broadcast and therefore it was somehow heard.
Fake or not we can bet the paranoia was really f***ing real!
