|Mayan Calendar- Copyrighted by Mayan Guys...|
So yesterday was December 22nd, the day the BIG countdown starts.
It was day 365 minus ONE.
Countdown eh, you ask, --countdown to what? Are you serious, you don't know what the big countdown is? It's not to Christmas eve, Santa's arrival, or even Christmas dinner.
It's not boxing day either, the day you have to take back all of the Don Cherry shirts, ties and socks you hate. It's not even about the annual ordeal of sending the crusty out-laws back home.
Guess what-- it's the countdown to the end of the world again!
The apocalypse, the bigger bang, the day everyone buys it-- if they haven't already bought it for Christmas. The world is toast.
It's the end of the MAYAN calendar,--- Dec. 21, 2012 AND ---THAT'S IT,--- no more, nada, zip, if you haven't done it you aren't going to be able to do it after that date, get it? No more shopping, no more working, playing, no complaining, no staring in wonder at the moon, and no warm and fuzzy moments in front of the open fire roasting chestnuts either. That's it. KAPUT.
Hm...that sounds serious. Here at Incoming Bytes, we better get to it. We have a lot of stuff to talk about before then.
I'm guessing nobody in the Mayan calendar-making business had discovered you could use both sides of the paper, but then, how eager would you be to have to write --or hack out another page as complex as the calendar in the picture--out of solid stone? Maybe he ran out of room.
Perhaps the scribe just ran out of time himself. Ha-ha! Only time will tell, unless Harold Camping comes up with a new date first.
that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
