  1. The Mayans did not have a leap year. That much is true. But 21 December 2012 is actually the end of the current Mayan calendar cycle, all things taken into account.

    That is not the end of the Mayan calendar though. They have counts for longer time periods, where the entire cycle just repeats. On 21 December 2012 the calendar just goes on to the next b’ak’tun.

    The following increment in b’ak’tun will be on 13 October 4772.

    Wikipedia records that Sandra Noble, executive director of the Mesoamerican research organization Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies, Inc.(FAMSI), considers the portrayal of December 2012 as a doomsday or cosmic-shift event to be “a complete fabrication and a chance for a lot of people to cash in.”

  2. I’d like to request Hell if it’s on the option menu.

    Mike meets interesting women. That’s all I need to know.

  3. I’m pretty sure the date was determined by the solstice which will stil be 12/21/12. Either way it doesn’t matter.

  4. Well then, I guess its a good thing that we dont use the Roman calender anymore. We use the Gregorian calender that was adopted around the 1580s, well before the translation of the Mayan calendar.

  5. ..while no expert, it seems everybody uses the birth of their deity as the beginning of time. The date in Thailand is 2555, because their magic man in the sky was born 543 years before our magic man in the sky. ..haha, I told my sister in Alaska that it is tomorrow here in the Philippines. …one day ahead of her. She said “tell me who wins the Superbowl!”
