When I saw you stop the world from, you know, ending, I just assumed that was a big week for you. It turns out I suddenly find myself needing to know the plural of apocalypse. ~ Riley Finn, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Apocalypse (n) - The End Of The World (capital letters required). From the Latin word apocalypsis meaning revelation which is from the Greek word apokalyptein meaning uncover. The plural, apparently, is Apocalypses.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice. ~ Robert Frost, 1920
