Well it looks like those of us looking forward to humanity finally getting the apocalyptic pounding we deserve at the end of the Mayan calendar are going to be disappointed after all. According to the Mayan Calendar Doesn’t Actually End in 2012 – Sorry, apocalypse watchers report by newser:
“Good news everyone: the world will (probably) not end in 2012! The millions of people no doubt living in abject fear of the end of the Mayan calendar can breathe a sigh of relief, because the conversion of dates from the Mayan calendar to our calendar could be off by 50 to 100 years, a new textbook argues. They’re not sure when the calendar actually ends, only that the current estimate is probably wrong.”
Good news?!?! Err… how wonderful! I guess we’ll all just have to die alone as usual or, if you really insist on taking everyone with you, resort to “other means” to bring on the apocalypse. But take heart my friends, the world is just chock full of wacko “end of the world” religious cults who are literally dying to bring in new recruits. And they’re all working very hard to bring about our demise… the old fashioned way:
I want ice water.
