OMG! It’s the end of the world!

I will be back in full force with the 13th Baktun or the 5th world or the rapture, whatever you call it.
Personally, I’m hoping for a Robot Apocalypse. But I’ve been hoping for that since I was 10.
Oh, but I will comment to the people who are apparently so terrified or ignorant they feel the need to rationalize and say the Mayan 12/21/12 didn’t account for leap years: You’re idiots. It was based on a different system of time. You’re idiots. Shut up when you don’t know what you’re talking about. The Mayan calendar is based on a number of days, not a number of years. This guy explains it better, if you care at all: http://jameswatt.me/2012/03/07/mayan-calendar-and-the-gregorian-leap-year/ (sorry, this thing has been going around for months and has just been annoying. I think because Americans tend to assume their way is the only way of doing things and everything must be compared to that way.)
To be honest. I’m a science-y person. I like when things are rational and logical. The 2012 Apocalypse is not rational or logical. But, reflecting on how we’ve learned to kill with such ease and grace and yet education and employment are so fucking difficult for us…well, I hope someone takes this realization into the dawning of a new age.
Better posts to come.
