No, the world is not going to end on April 23

Warnings of another end of the world scenario involving the planet Nibiru have been doing the rounds this week.
According to reports, a pair of planetary alignments involving the non-existent planet will signal the beginning of the biblical Rapture on April 23 and bring about the end of life as we know it.

Interest in Nibiru, which has been connected to various doomsday prophecies over the last two decades, began in 1995 after Nancy Lieder, founder of the website ZetaTalk, claimed that extraterrestrials from the Zeta Reticuli star system had warned her of an impending collision.

Since then there have been multiple 'doomsdays' involving Nibiru, but as evidenced by the fact that we are still here to talk about it, every single one of these has turned out to be bogus.

There is absolutely no reason at all to believe that this time will be any different.

"The story of Nibiru has been around for years (as has the 'days of darkness' tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables," NASA wrote.

"Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax."

"There is no factual basis for these claims."

Seriously, ten days out it should be close to the size of the moon by now, unless it is clear, of course. I mean, a see-through planet.... this being fantasy, it could happen, right? Solid primordial glass of such purity, not even cracked or anything sailing for eons at us and about to shatter in a billion pieces into the Sonic Drive-in of all places..... such pathos....

Yeah, 10 days out and no one but a totally blind person could miss it.  This stuff is just too funny!

Nonononono.... it's cloaked.  Romulan cloaking device.  You won't see it until it uncloaks.

But we'll be able to see it before the big *kaboom*...they have to uncloak before exploding into the Earth right?

The quantity, quality, and consistency of reports lends me to believe that this is real. A fair and reasoned study of all of the reports and a reliance on years of experience suggest this is a a paranormal event.

This is a particularly lazy end of the world scenario. Sigh. I'll add it to the list.

People should really give up on this whole Nibiru thing. Pictures or it didn't happen.

But it's just the perfect 'end of the world scenario' that just keeps on giving.
