Ready to die?
I wonder what time tomorrow the end arrives. And whether it will come all at once or be rolling east to west along with the time zones.
Thinking about it I believe that Kukulkan came out of the east. So I’m going with the rolling version.
Shouldn’t that be 666 degrees?
The world has been turned upside down?
Maybe I wasn’t paying quite enough attention. I thought that the end of the world was meant to be on the 12th of this month? Or have I not been paying quite enough attention to the babbling of knuckle-draggers and Discovery channel?
The world can’t end on the 21st – my car is booked for a service on the 22nd, and you know what the waiting list for servicing is like! Stop the Mayans, I want to get off!!
Doesn’t 786 add up to 21…..
Who believes these stupidity? Have a happy holiday season !!!!
Actually, have a very pleasant every day of your life.

What’s so unusual about that forecast to call attention to it? It’s no different from any other we might see here in Arizona.
But Arizona is a dry heat.
Never heard of August?
This past summer I hardly had to water my citrus trees at all. Almost every week, give or take, just as they were in need of a good soaking, we got enough rain to keep them happy for another week.
…which, of course, drives up the humidity. Sure, maybe 50% – 60% humidity doesn’t sound like much to swamp dwellers. But how does 113°F / 45°C with 60% humidity sound to you?
And just this past week we’ve had a couple systems move through and drop a lot of rain as well — but, of course, it’s cold and wet. Outlying areas probably got a light freeze, though we just barely made it down to the upper thirties where I’m at. The next system that comes through, whenever that happens, is likely to freeze us overnight, though.
I’m guessing this spring should be an epic one for wildflowers….
This superstitious irrationality already elicited its share of terror. At least this guy had a kitchen knife and not a semi-automatic Bushmaster.
Go talk with the Seventh Day Adventists. Their founder predicted (incorrectly) that the world would end in 1844. (from Wikipedia: The Great Disappointment
William Miller, a Baptist preacher, proposed that Jesus Christ would return to the earth during the year 1844. The more specific date of October 22, 1844, was preached by Samuel S. Snow. Thousands of followers, some of whom had given away all of their possessions, waited expectantly. When Jesus did not appear, October 22, 1844, became known as the Great Disappointment.
Strangely, the Baha’is also adopted this calculation, but applied to to one of their precursors, the Bab.
Christian just don’t like living without the fear that frying is near. Have they announced their next fry date yet?
The Mayans made their calendar many years before I one of the Caesars added leap year in 45BC If they has accounted for it. 12/21/12 would have been 7 months ago.
