It's midnight on January 1st, what do you do: Wish your family and friends a "Happy New Year!" or a "Happy Birthday" to the Earth? Well, both, obvi!
As we said farewell to 2017 and welcomed to 2018, we can't forget that the planet is also celebrating its big day, seemingly... according to Twitter. Believe it or not, some people on the internet actually believe that on January 1st the world turned 2018 years old.
Seriously, bro? Yea. Seriously! Just check out all of the tweets below:
We don't mean to be rude and break the news to people such as Twitter users Juicy Joel, Fixed Father, and The Mr. John Epic, but the world is NOT 2018 years old!!! In fact, the Earth is about 4.54 BILLION YEARS OLD (with an error range of 50 million years).
TBH, the planet does not have a birth certificate, but after hundreds of years Scientists have been able to calculate this info " by dating the rocks in the ever-changing crust, as well as neighbors such as the moon and visiting meteorites," according to Space.
