(Some Guy)   Remember how the Mayans predicted the end of the world in 2012? Well, some Poindexters did the math and found it's set to end on June 21, 2020. Been nice knowing all of ya   (tweaktown.com) divider line

The year didn't become 11 days shorter when we changed to the Gregorian calendar, morons! It was 365 days under the Julian calendar (366 in a leap year), and it still is. They merely cut 11 days out of that particular year to correct for some inaccuracies that had built up over centuries.

What they're saying is essentially, "When the Mayans said the world would end on December 21, 2012, they meant on the Julian calendar, not the Gregorian calendar!"

Which is really, really dumb.

Damn.  And I don't start my new job until July...

They're wrong. The world needs to exist until at the earliest July 3rd. According to the Book of Revelation, that's when the first Beast (Trump) will give authority to the second Beast, he of the infamous 666 (probably Kushner).

The exact date is a bit confusing because the Bible variously says this event will happen either 1260 days into the Trump presidency (July 3rd) or three and a half years (July 20th). One that happens, anticipate that you won't be able to go to work or shop without the "mark of the Beast" (Covid-19 passport is my guess).

Of course, that's assuming a Gregorian calendar. Since the timeline in Revelation echoes earlier apocalyptic traditions, in particular Daniel, its reasonable to assume that the Babylonian lunisolar calendar was intended, and that calendar had 354 days in a year, with a leap month (really) added in 7 out of the 19 years of the cycle. (By Daniel's time it had become even more complicated with a 76 year cycle...). Anyway, I can't be bothered to figure out what 42 months of the Babylonian calendar from Jan 20, 2017 would be...

By the way, I first started this whole apocalyptic schtick as a dumb joke, but the more I see of 2020, the more I find myself re-reading Revelation looking for loopholes.

Loopholes?  I'm looking for a guarantee that this shiat is fixing to end.

No, it means some new era is going to begin.  When they said the "end of the world" or whatever, it meant as we know it.

Stop teasing us and just end it already!

Have you been reading my Facebook timeline?  Did I leave it logged in at the library again?

After that date, you will no longer have any use for money.  Your best bet is to send your money to me before it's too late.

I would get a Mark Of The Beast if it meant I could get through the checkout line faster at Target.  Maybe in addition to self-checkout and cash-only registers, they'll have "Beast Marked Only" lanes.  I'd gladly trade away an eternity in paradise with a loving God for getting the fark out of Target 5 minutes faster every couple of weeks.

Just went to the grocery store and stocked until that date.

Plenty of wine too.

You know, people have figured out how long a year is a long time ago.  Otherwise every 15 years you'd have summer in winter and dogs and cats sleeping together.

Well I hope the next 1,872,000 days or 5,125.366 tropical years.

Is better than the previous 1,872,000 days or 5,125.366 tropical years.

Not sure what the big deal is.

Our calendar ends every year on December 31.

Someone clearly hasn't participated in arguing over what day it is based on the Hijri calendar.

When is the big holiday get together going to be? fark if I know!

I had not read the article before reading your post and told myself "I Ate Shergar must have read the article wrong, nobody is that stupid". I then read the article.

Too bad, it couldn't have happened in a better year. I was all ready to spend the rest of my food money for the month on beer.

There's always some prophecy of destruction that will come to fruition in the near future.

And then that date comes and goes.

Well, let's see... I was laid off from my job, I'm in the process of divorcing my husband (who was once normal, but in the last 5 years has gone off the deep end with the flat-earth BS), I'm selling my "forever home" and moving back to my childhood home with my elderly parents (along with my five-year-old). It sure as fark feels like the end of the world.

Or maybe it did end in 2012 and this is all a weird dream-state brought on by mind-shattering delirium in the last second of my existence. God, I hope not, because that'd mean I talk to myself an awful lot.
