Today’s fun video & link: Feds say world won’t end on 12/21

For those of you worried the world will end on Dec. 21 because of the Mayan calendar — or because 12/21/12 is just too many combinations of 1 and 2 — the federal government is offering some advice to chill out., a federal government blog, assures readers that the world is not, repeat NOT, going to end on that day. Or any day in 2012.

How can they be sure? They contacted a NASA astronomer who explains it all, and posted a couple videos, including the one above, online.

Of course, conspiracy theorists out there might argue that if the federal government KNEW the world was going to end on Dec. 21, do you really think they'd tell us? Of course not.

Thanks to Jason Mercier of the Center for Government Reform for the tip on the blog.
