Update: Mayan Calendar Madness

endofdays

So, the world did not end in catastrophe on December 21, 2012. Nor the day after.

And the Brazilian’s called it.

My poll, which was just a few respondents shy of a scientific sample, resulted in the following:

“I am a Brazilian and I do NOT think the world as we know it will end on Friday, December 21, 2012.” – 71%

“What Mayan calendar? You’re scaring me.” – 25%

“I am a Brazilian and I think the world as we know it WILL end on Friday, December 21, 2012.” – 4%

I’m thinking that Ipsos, the company that conducted the “global” survey (see Will the World End? No One Asked the Brazilians) had some insight into the Brazilian attitude on this issue and realized that if they had included Brazil, the survey results would have been rendered quite uninteresting.

However, while the world did not end with a bang or a crash or with the sun or another planet plowing into us, it doesn’t mean that something did not end on December 21st that might change the world as we know it as time goes on. Something small that will grow into something significant.

Just saying. Perhaps…

Having relocated from New York City to Sao Paulo, Brazil, I'm an expat attempting to broaden my horizons and adjust some of my American ways to be "born again" a Brazilian.
