"The right to buy weapons is the right to be free." -A.E. van Vogt
38. The world will not end. It’s a calendar carved on a rock by people who didn’t have enough technology to make an electric toaster…get real.
I lol'd at this:"Five years ago the phrase “fiat currency” was associated with bunker bound nutcases; and Ron Paul. Now it’s more mainstream but still associated with boring economists; and Ron Paul. By fall 2012 it’ll be a reasonable topic of discussion for everyone from rednecks to hippies. They’ll all think it’s an interesting concept but agree that Ron Paul is weird. Ron Paul won’t notice."
Yep, when I tear off the December sheet and am faced with that blank expanse of flat, brown heavy card...it's the end of the world.Maya - predicting the end of the world, but not the Spanish since...oh, whenever.
Hey! You be more respectful to those communist indian hispanic mexican aliens... Just because they couldn't compete with matchlock muskets and white-people germs doesn't mean that they weren't all powerful and all knowing omnipotent beings....oh wait...s
The reason the Mayan calender stops at the year 2012 is not that that is the year the world ends, but that it represents the point past which patience and raw hands could no longer stagger on--"Screw it, it's done. Let's go get a pitcher of blood."Or maybe a cerveza, I need to do some more reading.Mike James
I understand that there's been a new translation of the the last segment of the Mayan Calendar. It reads "Got to WalMart. Buy new calendar."
“The calender of the Theocracy of Muntab counts down, not up. No-one knows why, but it might not be a good idea to hang around and find out.”― Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters
I don't know about dissing the Mayans. Dick Clark died, so now we can't celebrate New Years.Well played, Mayans, well played . . . . .
