Ok, supposedly, the Mayan Calendar ends on that date. Because the Mayan Calendar has supposedly predicted significant weather-based events or some shit, people think that "OMGTEHWORLDITPHAILS!," rather than the slightly more rational "Well, maybe the Mayans got bored, or, you know, butchered by disease-ridden Spaniards or something." And so, because of this tiny theory, you know have the Bible Code folks jumping on the wagon, Roland Emmerich making yet another big-budget movie of questionable quality, and a bunch of people running around like nutters.
Me, I'ma call out of work, find the best view, pull up a chair, grab a beer and some pizza, and watch as the entire world drums up a universal combination of "Awwwww.../FUCK YEAH, WE'RE STILL ALIVE"
Now onto another possible conspiracy: My workplace has a poster in the restroom for the Maryland Department of Health & Mental Hygiene
. What does that even mean? An entire department devoted to making sure we're not thinking dirty thoughts? Or something even more sinister... total RIGHTTHINK! (Besides, considering I work at a convenience store, with the porn right next to the register, that's entrapment)
