a chilling portrait of the future:
did you know that the Mayan calender also predicts the end of the world in 2012?
It completes its current cycle in 2012, so it's the equivalent of the millenarian tension and predictions of doom that were knocking around towards the end of the 10th century AD. There's nothing in Mayan record that actually says the world's going to end - it's been hijacked and whipped-up by the kind of New Age knobheads that I'm continually plagued by at work.
Sorry to ruin the fun. On another note, spEak You’re bRanes continues to be just as hilarious as ever.
it's Mr Facts, coming to spoil everyone's fun with his FACTS and his KNOWLEDGE and blahhhhhhhhhhh.
