Bloody Mayans

Wrong again.

This whole thing has been as inane as it would be if one went to a stationary store in May to buy a 2014 calendar, found none, and concluded that the world would end on December 31st, 2013. There wasn't any real evidence, so far as I know, that even the Mayans back then thought the world would end today. Not that we know for sure, of course, because in the worst act of intellectual vandalism since the destruction of the Great Library of Alexandria, the fucking Spanish priests burned every Mayan book that they could find.

The good news is that, compared to the soft-minded loons who bought into the 2011 "rapture" nonsense, fewer people were caught up in this one.

Then again so one said it would be a sudden event. Looking at the silly season events and TVee this could take a while.

Then again it may just be the OMG its Y2K thing again.
