#1 I read that the Mayans didn't understand "Leap Year" so the time has passed months ago, NO PANIC HERE.

#8 I can't wait personally. Whatever survives after an apocalypse would be better than what we have now. :p

#10 Mebe I could finally lose a few pounds on FEMA biscuits. But then there would be no walk to the mailbox.... so it might just all even out. :-(

#12 The 21st is a payday Friday

They call it stormy Monday,
But Tuesday's just as bad.
...
The quetzalcoatl flies on Friday,
On Saturday, I go out and play.

#14 Of course the calendar doesn't end, like ours doesn't end on Dec 31st.
The Mayan calendar (long count) has been there before but we're still around.

But if you like to sell me your life insurance for 10% of its value, I'm game.
