December 2012: The End Of The World As We Know It!

Experts tell us that the Mayan Calendar predicts the end of the world on December 21(?), 2012.


They know this because that's when the Mayan Calendar ends. Well that just makes sense.


Or does it?


Our calendar ends on December 31st just about every year. A new tax year starts so I can see that a lot of folks would rather not have to face THAT prospect, so why doesn't the world end every year on 12/31? Well I don't have the answer to that but somehow, it just keeps on keeping on, year after year.


Were the Mayans smarter than we are? If they were, then where are they? Huh?


I think that the reason that their calendar ran out was that they just ran out of space on that big round rock. If they were so smart, why didn't they invent paper?


You'd think that the ancient aliens would have given them a notebook and a few pens or at least have taught them how to pound out some wood fibers, soak them in some lye water and lay them out to dry, but no! They just showed them how to build some pyramids before thy flew off to Egypt. At least they taught the Egyptians how to make papyrus!


Seriously, the world isn't going to end in 2012. You heard it here first and when it doesn't end remember to give me full credit.

  1. We didn't teach them how to make paper because it's more funny to watch them write on stone! C'mon.....
