Ragnarok apocalypse, Feb 22.

How would you react, prepare yourself for the end of the world, if you know for sure that it will end tomorrow?! The thing is: Viking folklore had its own take on the apocalypse called Ragnarok which would involve gods smiting each other, the sky stained with poison and three freezing winters - so we're a third of the way there already.

Norse experts have calculated that the viking gods are going to start flinging magic hammers at each other on February 22, 2014 as Thor's dad Odin gets mauled to death by a wolf which will get the ball rolling for the armageddon. Mythology states that the god Heimdallr would blow the magical Gjallerhorn to warn of Ragnarok which means Doom of the Gods. This will alert Odin's sons like Thor to the battlefield.

Ancient Swedes, Danes and Norwegians believed that first a freezing winter would come, then all morality would disappear and fights would break out all over the world.The legend states that "the first to notice shall be man, brother will fight brother and all the boundaries that exist shall crumble.

"Viking experts have pointed out that boundaries are already crumbling through social networking, so if Loki and Thor do start brawling in your back garden maybe consider closing that Twitter account.

So, are you prepared for another end of the world?!
