As you may have heard, the world is supposed to end today. If that's the case, then you may never see this article as you're dodging zombies, meteors and other unfortunate world-ending phenomena.

But, if by chance all is well come morning, then what might be five signs of a State College apocalypse? Here are our five, but feel free to add your own in the comments below.

1. The Corner Room moves up Allen Street.

Nothing more awkward than visiting one of State College's most-visited hot spots in a place that is no longer geometrically or geographically accurate. "Right above Abercrombie" doesn't have the same ring to it.

2. The Lion Shrine turns into a squirrel.

The little furry guys always seem a little too interested in what you have to eat. Sooner or later, they're going to make their move. The Lion might be the first to go.

3. Meyer Dairy gets rid of the glass bottles.

No more glass bottles means no more discount for returning your used one. It also means no mid-afternoon workout carrying them back to your car.

4. Mount Nittany's lookout changes.

You've hiked up the surprisingly steep climb to get to the top. All that awaits you now is a drink of water and a nice view of Beaver Stadium. But now the trees have grown and you can't see anything. It might not be the end of the world, but it's pretty annoying.

5. The Diner stops selling sticky buns

With Twinkies going out of business, the Diner decides to sell the long-lasting treats in place of sticky buns.
