Well, when there is a real nuclear attack, you'll have the practice of diving under desks already mastered. And you'll be laughing at all your co-workers with your superior desking skills

You know they took leap years into account when working out date conversion from the Mayan calendar to the Gregorian calendar. 21st December 2012 is still the end of the thirteenth baktun

33 is right. Idk why he/she got thumbed down. It's the end of the 13th baktun. The Mayans never said anything about the world ending, though. Some American guy in the 60s said he thought that's what it meant. People took that suggestion and ran with it.

The world isn't ending and won't. Just because the Mayans got tired of making a fucking calendar doesn't mean the world is going to end... It's just a scam to make money. Sorry, had to let it all out.

The Mayans had a dedicated calendar guy, and every 250 years, a new calendar was made by a descendant of the previous calendar maker. The new guy was supposed to make a new calendar that goes a while into the future, but in 250 years the new calendar was a big deal. Calendars were a big deal for the Mayans, which is why when they stopped making them, it was taken by crazy people as a big thing. Also, living "Mayans" are laughing at us right now saying they stopped making the calendars because they got invaded. Too bad they couldn't predict their own doom first. EDIT: So no, the world is not going to "end"

65 is correct. If the Mayans predicted the Spanish invading, and the ensuing diseases they brought; I would give their calendar ending maybe an ounce of credibility. The fact that they got caught off guard negates any hypothesis of prophetical activity.

Okay, the Mayan calander doesn't even end. The Mayans have thousands more years mapped out and to think they thought of an apocalypse is completely demented. The Mayans believe blood for blood, life for life, and doing that keep balance in nature. They would sacrifice blood to ensure the sun rising because they believed it was required to maintain the balance. They believe that on the 21st of December 2012 that something catastrophic would happen, but also something beautiful. Never was the world ending even a prediction. So those of you thinking they just "stopped making them" you are wrong. They used cycles and didn't need to make more calanders because the ones they have (yes there are in fact many) just go back again to the beginning at the end of the cycle. There are many cycles which do not end today and map out future dates still. The Mayans still follow these cycles and did honestly expect some sort of event to happen today, who knows, maybe they got a great new lease of a village car for no cash down but found out they have a huge monthly rate...but what the fuck do I know, I only slept at a holiday in express last night.

It annoys me when people say "the 21st passed in Australia so..." The Mayans were thinking of their own time zone, people (11)! That's not a good argument! Looks like the earth's going to be okay though.

Wrong day to do a test run. And don't bother hiding under your desk OP, you can't survive a nuclear missile attack anyways. Face the death with brave face.

It's the end of the world as we know it. It's the end of the world as we know it. It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine. (except for the reported bacon shortage)

Lol I read an article on .... Drumroll please .... Bacon cloning a group of scientists were using porcine stem cells and growing them into bacon ... Well the equivalent anatomical part anyways. Crisis averted.

A middle attack won't be that bad. Or a side one. If it's frontal then OP is not really protected by the inch of wood he hopes will protect him from a missile attack. Still, better than nothing.
