    What Are You Doing For The End Of the World?

    December 21st. The "end of the world" according to some interpretations of the Mayan calendar.

    The weather forecast for Friday the 21st doesn't look good. I think I'll get my party on Thursday.

    What I do every day try to take over the World.

    If the Mayans are right I will drive to our best beach, take some good wine and a blanket, eat a nice lunch then sit down put my head between my legs and kiss my butt goodbye.

    quote from the wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayan_calendar#Long_Count

    Misinterpretation of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is the basis for a popular belief that a cataclysm will take place on December 21, 2012. December 21, 2012 is simply the day that the calendar will go to the next b'ak'tun, at Long Count 13.0.0.0.0. The date on which the calendar will go to the next piktun (a complete series of 20 b'ak'tuns), at Long Count 1.0.0.0.0.0, will be on October 13, 4772.

    Back the first time the aliens came for me in '73, they took me to October 13, 4772.

    It was a bad day. The meals are scheduled all around the world. That day someone had screwed up in scheduling and put all three meals as broccoli porridge with spam and toenail clippings.

    The aliens ordered take-out from a Chinese restaurant on Pluto. That was the only good thing that happened to me on that trip.

    I'll do what I planned to do: go out and enjoy an end of year meal (read "party time") with my colleagues.

    Until Mickey had to give Pluto a severe telling-off for trying to bite the aliens.
