I was completely obliterated but then used my god(tm) powers to resurrect myself thus proving 1)the veracity of the Mayan/Inca/undocumented worker thing and 2)my divinity.

Good day so far.

So when is the next apocalypse scheduled for. I know there is some sort of asteroid that is supposed to swing awful close in like 2025 and there is some stupid prophecy from some medieval monk of who all the popes would be before the end of the world and the current one is supposed to be the last. But 2025 is a long way off and The Zinger looks relatively healthy, so surely there has to be something between now and then to mock.

I iz a bit obliterated this evening, but think it unlikely that the Mayan Calender had a great deal to do with it.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

OK. I was right.

Seven and a half hours ago the world ended and we all went to Mayan Hell.

The part of Mayan Hell where the gods put me looks a lot like Chicago. :BigGrin3:

One last hit.

Mayan temple damaged in tourist 'apocalypse' frenzy (AFP)

Tourists flocking to Guatemala for "end of the world" parties have damaged an ancient stone temple at Tikal, the largest archeological site and urban center of the Mayan civilization.

"Sadly, many tourists climbed Temple II and caused damage," said Osvaldo Gomez, a technical adviser at the site, which is located some 550 kilometers (340 miles) north of Guatemala City.

This is clarsct's post-rapture insurance account. He regrets to inform you that he was taken by Chxtomak, Mayan God of the Sun, for his last minute conversion and sacrifice of 100 pounds of pickled cod. He is sorry you missed it.

The rest of us are screwed.

Just saw someone's "shower thought" on reddit: today is the 5-year anniversary of the end of the world.

Happy End of the World Day! :D
