I was just looking at a story about the Mayan calendar end of the world thing on Yahoo News (http://news.yahoo.com/expert-mexico-glyphs-dont-predict-apocalypse-040313881.html), and I saw the following comment.
Jeffery: who cares, people will believe anything. get a life, open a book, hug your kids,watch out for zombies- i mean t-baggers. ;)
That pretty much sums it up. For all the wackos out there claiming the Mayans predicted the end of the world stop it. The mayans didn't predict anything. It's not even their calendar. They got it from local tribes that were there before them. Do you seriously think people who slaughtered kids to make sure the sun would come back up are capable of anything intelligent? I'm amazed they thought they would be around that long. Whatever happened to them?
