#1 Ooh! I got an idea! Call it a theory.

The end of the Mayan calendar is the beginning of the end caused by global warming. Saturday, the oceans will begin to rise (noticeably!) and the north pole will melt, forcing Santa to borrow the USS Enterprise for his floating workshop.

Remember, you read about it at Rantburg!

#5 Bobby:

Even better, call it a theory and then announce that "the science is settled."

#7 While soldering on a bum graphics card yesterday, it occurred to me that what the Mayans foresaw was the simultaneous explosion of every cheap-ass, low-rent, melamine-filled Chinese capacitor in electronic devices everywhere, bringing modern civilization to its knees.

Either that or the Mayans figured that making a calender for the next five millennia was enough to last for a while and they would finish it up later.
