Take on a time challenge before the end of the world

TIME is of the essence.

The Daily Echo’s countdown until the end of the world has now hit the 24-day mark.

And with so little time remaining until December 21 – the final date in the Mayan calendar – today we bring you two time-related challenges to add to your bucket list.

According to a recent survey by the British Heart Foundation, the thing we regret most in life is not seeing enough of the world.

Well, today is the perfect opportunity to put those thoughts to bed and experience a day in each of planet Earth’s 24 different time zones.

From Europe to Australia, South America to Asia, why not spend your remaining days jet-setting around the world to see as much of it as you can – before it all comes to an end?

For those seeking a slightly less gruelling challenge, there’s always the 24-hour slog – something that a number of us will no doubt have experienced during our university days.

So relive your youth by putting in a 24- hour shift – stay up all day then party the night away, before heading into work slightly worse for wear in the morning, without grabbing a single one of your 40 winks.

If December 21 will be the end of the world, why waste it sleeping?

What is this total and utter ****?
Not surprising that no-one is prepared to put their name to this.

How about reporting inciteful local interest pieces? Too hard?

A testament to how this site could never introduce a paywall. The only end that is on the horizon is that of this amateurish 'news site'

This is probably in the top ten of the Echo's most accurate reports ever, every detail spot on and trufully written.

Just two small questions though where do I get the money to jet around the world and how long has David Ike been employed as a staff reporter?
