As of a few hours ago, it’s December 21st in Australia and New Zealand. That means that we now have proof the Mayans were right about the end of the world because that corner of the planet has exploded or snapped off and floated away or something, right?
Reports are flooding in (if three Reddit posts can be considered a flood) from our Foster-drinking, kangaroo-boxing, upside-down friends down under. It turns out they’re enjoying December 21 in peace and non-explodedness.
Reddit user Lachlan_McD posted this image, confirming his or her continued existence (note: it might look upside down to those of us in America, but it looks correct to everyone in the Southern Hemisphere):

Slightly more disconcerting is sasquatch92’s contribution, which could be construed as depicting a scene that isn’t nearly as peaceful as those above:
Still, two out of three ain’t bad, right? You have to like those odds as those of us in the Northern Hemisphere (aka the best hemisphere) inch our way toward December 21.
Besides, your life can’t be in too much danger if you have time to take a picture of your clock and post it to Reddit as your house either burns to the ground in a blaze of hellfire or burns to the ground as a result of a fire that you intentionally set to get some of that sweet, sweet Reddit karma.
