That also didn't happen.
Y2K didn't happen, none of the predicted dates before happened, the rapture didn't happen, aliens didn't happen, this won't happen.
Well of course nothing is going to happen, these end of the world predictions are just a means of making money off of idiots.

And the reason why Y2K didn't happen is because computers keep track of time in miliseconds, so going from the year 1999 to 2000 doesn't really phase them. But if you have a 32-bit computer the year 2038 will be a problem for you.
