Although most people weren’t too original, posting midnight statuses on Facebook that basically consisted of quips like -- “Stayed up until 12, still alive, Mayans were wrong, good night” -- others cranked out some jokes that were sure to draw a chuckle or two from their social media friends.

Some people are still unsure if the world will actually end, searching the web for the precise time that the Mayans predicted.
