Wow it's been a while....8 months? yeah....
Anyways, here's a good article I just read that is FULL of proof that people are stupid: if I was a Mayan and kept getting asked about the end of the world... I'd probably flip a shit. And if there are things indicating dates after December 21, 2012 that can be found in Mayan inscriptions... I guess the problem here is that people hear something they don't understand and don't get all of the information (if barely any at ALL) and just kinda go crazy from there.
Case in point:
The 13th Baktun of the Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012.
The end of the Mayan calendar!
THE END OF THE WORLD!!!
I am going to die.
This train of thought is vaguely... pathetic. I think I'm missing some steps but who cares.
And on that note... I wonder what kind of crazy shit will go down the week before this happens if there are people actually writing to religion institutes worried that they won't live to see their children grow up. I was going to make some crack about this and some possible comedic scenarios, until I realized how many people will probably kill themselves... possibly en mass... possibly taking their "fate into their own hands" and mercy killing their children.
Oh my god.
