At least its not the goat-man calender.....ewwWWww..

I don't get these people that think the world is going to end today. Don't people realize that epic level disasters are never so convenient as to schedule themselves?

The Mayans were wrong.

AppleOptionEsc: what_now: Today is going to be silly, isn't it?

The friday before Xmas on doomsday? Fark yeah.


If this time of year wasn't already so full of holidays, I'd say we should make every Friday before Christmas "Doomsday" from now on. We could celebrate with nihilistic orgies and lots of fried foods!

Can we come up with a good reason to relocate it to August, maybe? That's pretty empty.

Nope, subby was right, it's Aztec, and it's not exactly a calendar either, although it does have some calendrical elements.  It was part of an altar.

Is it just me, or is the weather surprisingly meteor-free?

wait a minute...

I'm starting to think this whole 'Apocalypse' business may have been... exaggerated.

Does the 8th work for you? 2nd Friday in August?

Balchinian: KhamanV:

Hey, is there an adblock mod that'll get rid of that adblock notice so that my friend who reads fark who totally isn't me and adblocks everything doesn't have to see that bar?

Just asking.

Regular old ABP will do it. Just right click on the strip, click "Inspect Element", and then click "Hide with ABP" (down on the bottom right).


I'm running Firefox with ABP and Firebug. I have the "Inspect Element" context menu item, but I don't have the "Hide with ABP" on the bottom right. What versions are you running?

I do hope so. I'm bored.

Way back in the 1970s, this whole thing got started with an episode of Kolchak: The Night Stalker, featuring Erik Estrada. Before that, the Mayan calender was almost overlooked by the New Age Movement. I'm just so happy to see it coming to an end.

Langdon Alger: because some of us are at work and a NSFW background could get us fired.


I reward you a SFW picture of Maya Gold.

I think Fark would be a hundred times more popular with this background.

Just think a few years ago Republicans thought the world going to end every time the sun set. Now it's just when the odometer rolls back on a flabcluster of years on a calendar made in america.
