Some people are into this, some people are not.
The Mayan calendar runs out to the end of the year 2012. Some folks predict worldwide geographic cataclysm, some folks think it is a time of spiritual awakening, some people think a giant meteor will crash into Washington DC and save everyone except the auto unions.
What a lot of people don't know, or overlook, is that the Gregorian calendar, the calendar we use today, is NOT aligned to the Mayan calendar. The Gregorian calendar is behind the Mayan calendar by 4-years. So, 2012 on the Mayan calendar is the same as 2008 on our calendar.
Per the Mayan calendar, time on Earth as we know it will come to an end on the winter equinox this Sunday, Dec 21st, 2008, at 7:04am, EST.
So, while I can still post, HAPPY END OF THE WORLD!!!
