Thank you, isn't the whole thing just that the calender didn't extend past that date? If I don't have any work appointments scheduled two weeks from now does that mean I plan on getting fired?

Social media has caused all these things to get overblown and parroted.

Re: Um...I'm Still Alive

I was at Chichen Itza a few weeks ago for my honeymoon. The guides, who happened to be present day Mayans, said the only thing the calendar predicted was the alignment of the planets. They said the doomsday theories were spread by Nat Geo and were ridiculous. The Mayans had thousands of calendars and scrolls that contained numerous calendars, but they were all destroyed by the Spanish when they arrived except for 4.

Re: Um...I'm Still Alive

I had a paulina porizkova calendar when I was 18, it ended on December 31st - I didnt go around claiming that she therefore predicted that the world would end on december 31st

but I did continue to enjoy the pictures well into the following year
