End of the World - Yesterday, Again

Yet again the World ended yesterday. This time it was supposed to be Ragnarok, the Viking
apocalypse, a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of gods (including Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Well they got that last part right given all the rain we've had recently.

Talking about floods, set for release on the 28th of March is the film Noah, it stars Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins and Jennifer Connelly, and is directed by Darren Aronofsky. In this story rather than the gods being killed it's a god killing everyone (and all the animals too). But a small group are saved to carry on and rebuild the world, just like the Viking myth which has two humans, Lif and Lifthrasir, surviving to repopulate the Earth (er, sounds like another story), oh and apparently the inbreeding isn't a problem........................
