Re: Mayan Calender - no longer used

My Mayan calender is the premium Belizian model, known through out the world to be the only recognized accurate calender for ancient civilizations, even the Mesopotanians ordered from the Belizians.

No need to order the new V2.0 calander yet.
Rumour has it an optional (at some cost) update will be available for V1.0 before the next apocalypse.

Re: Mayan Calender - no longer used

I like this one


"And as silly as this all may seem, a worldwide survey shows that one in 10 people believe the world is going to end on Friday. A Chinese man even designed a survival pod. The inventor says they can hold 14 people comfortably, or roughly three American people comfortably. If you buy one of these pods, you might survive the end of the world. But since it is made in China, you will also die of lead poisoning." -Jimmy Kimmel

Re: Mayan Calender - no longer used

I predict that from this day on the suns declination will be further north making for longer days. Six months from now I will sacrifice DOJ's goat to the Goddess of the Night and from then on the days will start getting shorter.

No, making for shorter days.
This is from real life cruising experience, not by some fancy analysis and/or prediction

Re: Mayan Calender - no longer used

I'm holding on to my Myan Calender. It may be a bit outdated now, but Miss January is timeless.
