The world may not end soon predicts newly found Mayan calendar

The earliest known Mayan calendar has been found in an ancient house in Guatemala and it offers no hint that the world's end is imminent, researchers said Thursday.

The walls reveal the oldest known astronomical tables from the Maya. Scientists already knew they must have been keeping such records at that time, but until now the oldest known examples dated from about 600 years later.

Astronomical records were key to the Mayan calendar, which has gotten some attention recently because of doomsday warnings that it predicts the end of the world this December. Experts say it makes no such prediction. The new finding provides a bit of backup: The calculations include a time span longer than 6,000 years, meaning it could extend well beyond 2012.

Only 2 more days until the end of the world. Ok, God, bring it.

But I think it's a load of bunk. Besides, my fortune cookie said, "the star of riches will shine upon you starting next month", so obviously I'm still gonna be around. I think I'll buy a lottery ticket.

Can we still party like it's 1999?

The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.

No one is going to believe the Mayans after this, but then no one listened to Prince after 1999 either.

Happy End of the World. The weather here is lovely.
