I heard someone say something somewhere that the Mayans didnt take leap years into consideration so if the world was going to end it would have been years ago.

The world was supposed to end a long time ago, and it would have too if it weren't for those meddling kids and their dog!

So, how long will this take? I have a dentist appointment at 2:35pm. I wouldn't mind giving it a miss.

Edit:I got the stupid month wrong.

The Mayan calendar accounted for this. The earth takes 365.25 days to orbit the sun, so that's why we have an extra day every 4 years. The Mayans knew this, and somehow calculated it into their calendar, which is a lot more accurate than the one we use today.


I find it remarkable that they were able to measure and calculate that.

Waiting for some crazies to have their mass suicides. I do think there are people that believe it's true.

Apparently it does take a rocket scientist to figure out that December 21 will be just like any other day...

Yeah, there's even a myth about the myth.

The Mayans didn't have a date called December 21st though. They would have called it something completely different. Archeologists just converted it to our calender.

BOOOSH.
That'd do a lot more than just make it a bit hotter...

Well scientists discovered another Mayan calender didn't they? lol

All these prophesies don't have to dictate the end of the world. Could more or less be a 'global event'. Social, political or geographic.
