Ragnarok’s end of the world scenario is supposed to happen today according to Norse legend, but even the mighty Thor might take a nap today instead of riding into battle with the sons of Odin.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Chris Hemsworth revealed that Thor 3: Ragnarok is likely to be the name of the next Thor sequel. This rumor was given more credence when the screenplay writers for Thor 3 were announced since they had recently referenced end of the world scenarios. It’s also rumored that the Agents Of Shield TV show might feature Thor in some fashion in order to set up the sequel.

The real life town of York is throwing a party to celebrate the coming of Ragnarok in true Norse fashion. We’re assuming this will involve little fighting (drunken brawling with bearded men?) but instead focus on parades and other festivities. The Jorvik Viking Centre is hosting it all and they’ve already announced the arrival of the Viking gods:

Unlike the Mayan end of the world, Ragnarok is not being taken seriously by anyone at all. When the Mayan Armageddon came around there were people worrying about World War 3 and some traveled to remote locations in order to prepare for the end of days. Although many Americans probably weren’t aware Ragnarok was upon us, people are spreading the word on Twitter and some are preparing to fight Fenrir in their own manner:
Apparently today is #Ragnarok2014. I shall attempt to distract Fenrir with a squeaky toy so he does not consume the sun. Hey, dogs love me.

The Twitter hashtag #Ragnarok2014 has begun to spread like wildfire and people are wondering whether the end is nigh… so they can have an excuse to avoid work or doing homework. Other people are talking about breaking out the grog and celebrating Ragnarok by watching Viking history on TV. How do you plan on celebrating the end of the world today?
