With the news that it is 12/21/12 and no signs of the Apocalypse, we may heave a sigh of relief and indulge in some lighthearted celebration of yet another failed doomsday prophecy. Celebration? For the 1%, yes, obviously; but for the 99%?

Y'know, according to Einsteinian physics, it takes four years for the effect of the apocalypse catastrophe to reach us here on planet Earth.
