jawkneefive: I don't know why people keep referring to the Mayan calendar and thinking it means the world is going to end. There has to be some kind of logic behind it.My completely uneducated guess is that the calendar simply resets itself, much like a clock. Maybe planetary alignment is like the hour and the minute hand both being on '12'...time for a new cycle. Supposedly they were great astronomers.I will however prepare for possible planetary annihilation by washing my sheets, because on the 22nd, I'm sleeping and you bet your ass I'm gonna be real comfortable.
vodka: This is the same NASA that believes in Global Warming?

Swoop1809: One of my coworkers said his wife believes the world is going to end on the 21st. He said she's been buying up canned food and has 50 gallon drums of water in the basement. She thinks everything is going to break down and everyone will be put in death camps or something. His words were "I am living with a nut case, but she has a gun now so I don't say anything"She is also a cat rescuer so they have 20 cats. I have no idea how he puts up with her
BunkoSquad: NASA should say, "frankly we don't know if the world is going to end or not. But if you think it might, it's probably wise to off yourself now and beat the rush"
