Clearly we’re all doomed.

Archaeologists say they’ve discovered what could be the tomb of one of the greatest Mayan rulers, the seventh-century warrior queen Lady K’abel.

It’s possible I’m not getting enough sleep.

I actually didn’t make the connection that the Mayan one was a seasonal calendar.

I should have probably.

 

On an unrelated note: Nate are you getting this weird ashy stuff floating around outside your building?

The Mayan Apocalypse will be an internal one.

Not sure what to think about those ashes. Maybe a neighbor had a apocalyptic experience with a charcoal grill or something. I swear there was ash all over the place falling like snow past my window. Now that I go out and look, I ain’t getting nothing and my buddy Nate said nothing too. Strange to communicate with a buddy from your blog I guess but he follows me (and all his thousand blogs) religiously closely.

PS, thought this was interesting:

Most experts claim that the transformative event at the end of the Mayan Calendar 2012 is more of an internal one, rather than a physical one.

They even started an Indiegogo at the link to fundraise for awareness campaigns. Not sure if it’s legit but I sure am interested in the idea of this Mayan apocalypse being an internal one.

Mars Rover – Discovery for the History Books

Maybe people in every age say this: could this be one of the most transformative periods of human history? This is the latest news to have me holding my breath:

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has apparently made a discovery “for the history books,” but we’ll have to wait a few weeks to learn what the new Red Planet find may be, media reports suggest.

 

More of What Actual Mayans Think of December 21st

It could just be regular clouds but the sky is getting really hazy again. It’s freaking me out since it has been so quiet. It’s almost normal here today. To cheer myself up I did a little more looking around for Doomsday theories.

Modern-day Mayans seem like really down-to-earth people. So many chill quotes about the coming doomsday prophecy:

“We don’t know if the world is going to end,” said Liborio Yeh Kinil, a 62-year-old who can usually be found sitting on a chair outside his small grocery store at the corner of the grassy central square of the town of Uh-May in Quintana Roo state. “Remember 2006, and the `6-6-6′ (June 6, 2006): A lot of people thought something was going to happen, and nothing happened after all.”

There may be a source to their relaxed way of looking at things:

In all the fervor, Mayas rely on an ancestral calm built of good humor, calmness and the fact that it’s too hot to get all worked up about things.
