People say that December 21, 2012 is the end of the world, because the Mayan calendar ends at that point. Some people have tried and prepared for it, doing things such as quitting their job, spending all of their money on spam, and going around insulting people, because what do they have to lose? Actually, it turns out the world will not end on December 21st. “Why?” you ask. Well, there is a period of time in the Mayan calendar called a baktun, which is approximately 394.26 years. That is the end of the Mayan calendar. Every time a baktun is finished, it restarts itself, much like at the end of the year. You must buy another calendar to have it continue next year. We are in the 13th baktun, and it will end at December 21st. All those who ruined their lives because they had nothing to lose, you are going to lose it all on December 22nd. That is the reason that the world is not+ going to end on December 21st, 2012. Or January 1st, 2000, or 1874, 1878, 1881, 1910, 1914, 1918, 1925, 1941, 1975, 1984, and 1999, when the world was predicted to end.
