Apocalypse Not

Is This Website for Instagramming the Mayan Apocalypse the Worst Thing Ever? (Yes.)

Sigh.

NASA has warned us time and time again that the Mayan apocalypse, predicted to fall on 12/21/12, is not scientifically possible. It’s not gonna happen, people! And yet, Twitter users everywhere are spending a disproportionate amount of time coming up with completely original Mayan joke material. Now, there is Instapocalypse, a site that culls Instagram photos published with the #apocalypse hashtag, because we all get the Internet we deserve.

So far the site is pretty sparse, populated by some pics of weird expiration dates on foods and a shoddy-looking apocalypse countdown thing created by something called Versagram. We do, however, have to agree with this photo, which correctly pronounces that 12/21/12 will be the most annoying day in Facebook history. Also, this cat is cute!

If a fiery asteroid does end up hurtling towards earth on 12/21/12, I think we can all die happy knowing that we contributed to such a meaningful project.
