Today’s Winter Solstice marks the end of the 5000 year cycle of the Mayan long count calendar, meaning we’re living during a unique time where we’re at the beginning of a new 5000 year cycle. Where do you think the human race will be five thousand years from now?
Daily Discussion: I know the whole end of the world thing is stupid, but is anyone going to any fun Solstice Apocalypse gatherings?
Bear with me… I know that the whole Mayan Apocalypse thing is totally idiotic, but people are having fun with it, and it is still Winter Solstice (Summer down under g’day!), which is a good time for celebration. Do you have any big end of the world plans?
You know and I know that on this year’s Winter Solstice on December 21st, not a god damn thing is going to happen other than the Sun appearing lower in the horizon than any other day of the year. Just like every Winter Solstice. But just in case, NASA has put together a pretty comprehensive FAQ, with sort of an exhausted tone, to answer all of your moronic questions.
I know, it’s completely fucking retarded, the whole Mayan Apocalypse thing. But indulge me anyway… when December 21st rolls around or whenever, there might be some fun stuff going on. How are going to spend your last day on Earth?
There are already too many dumb people in the world who seem certain that the world is going to end on December 21 of this year because of a goofy interpretation of the Mayan long count calendar. The whole Mayan Apocalypse thing, or the “end” of the Mayan calendar has been shit on, shot down and totally incorrect in every way according to every scientist, archaeologist, historian and every living Mayan. But some people, like this guy from China, really believe. Silly Uygher.
