Let's just assume for a moment that the Aztecs and Mayans were right in that there was no use for a calendar after 2012. According to them, this age comes to an end on the winter solstice of that year. Chillingly, the Aztec calendar also predicted the arrival of of a "white god" on the exact date that Cortéz arrived - many believe that this explains why they didn't put up a fight even though they vastly outnumbered Cortéz's men. The Mayans specifically point to the date 12/21/2012 as when this age ends. Finito. Nada mas. Kablooie.
It certainly seems plausible what with the looming possibility and even statistical PROBABILITY of nuclear war, global warming, bird flu and asteroids. All of these things could end the world as we know it.
What do I want to get done?
All I can come up with is "less work, more play".
Even if the Aztecs and Mayans are wrong, it doesn't seem like such a bad life mentality.
Happy fourth of July to all my blood down south! Have fun and eat a hot dog for me!
