I wrote this blog post quite a few days ago, and programmed it to be posted on December 22, 2012 at 6:01 am CT, one minute after midnight in the westernmost time zone on Earth, which means that every point on Earth is complete with December 21.
If you’re reading this, then the only conclusion you can draw is that the nonsense white leftist new age interpretation of nonsense primitive scribbling of Indo/Meso civilizationally extinct jungle savages turned out to be like almost everything they do and did, respectively.
Now maybe we can start putting this whole fundagelical Christian Revelation rapture/end-times malarkey into perspective. Anyone?
Personally, I’m more worried about the day they give a T-Bill auction and nobody comes.
OTOH, you can probably get a great deal on Mayan calendars starting today.
Speaking of, even if this Mayan bullshit had a lick of validity to it, the Mayans (“great mathematical geniuses who invented the zero as a placeholder”) didn’t have leap years because they weren’t able to grok that the day wasn’t quite exactly 365 days long. Caucasian humanity going back to ancient civilizations figured that out and compensated for it in one way or another. And by 1582 (!), with the advent of the Gregorian Calendar that removed the leap year status of years ending in double zero and not divisible by 400, early modern Europe figured on the average length of the year being 365.2425 days long over a 400-year average. The modern figure is 365.24239878 days per year, which means that once every 3,300 or so years under the Gregorian calendar, there will have to be some sort of adjustment, either a year that would ordinarily be leap won’t be temporarily, or vice versa. Point is, because the Mayans didn’t add extra days to their years, their calendar ended a long time ago, which means we should have been burning up a long time ago.
