20 days to the End of the world that's not going to happen

Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Guys!

Mayan calendar didn't account for leap years.

World ended back in July.

Guess we're all dead but don't know it yet.

If this is supposed to be the afterlife, I want a refund.

Indeed, I was expecting something more ethereal.

Why would you want a refund? If life is so great, why wouldn't the afterlife try to be similar?

I was mostly quipping with that line, but I guess you could say that I was expecting a more idealized world out of the traditional "afterlife" idea.

Long count is vigesimal - it actually doesn't account for a full five days in a year, calling those "dangerous days" and discarding them from the usual count. The Mayans could easily have snuck in a leap year by increasing one of those dangerous days when they pleased.

I think I'll regret not seeing Q if the world ends and we all die (and I hope the end is a spectacular as EoE)...
But if we survive... I should probably get a gun in case the world is just thrown into anarchy...

Rant of mine follows;

Anyways, given that I am actually nearer to the abandoned pyramids of the alarmists that probably just went out of stone when making their calendar I can say, we have bigger issues here than the end of the world (namely newly "elected" president and cartel violence)

Fortunately my friends planned a get together for Friday, so I'll be with people that I know. So if anything does happen (which I'm pretty sure nothing will happen) I won't be alone.
If I was alone, I would crank up The Dark Side Of The Moon, tell my family I love them, and blast on my saxophone until the end. Dramatic exit, hell yeah.

I probably wouldn't do anything different even if the end of the world really was a thing. I must really like to live conservatively. :lol:

Probably gonna go to work in the morning since it's a half-day anyway. Then I'll either stay with my family, go to my friend's house and play SSBM through the night, or just work on my college applications like I should. That last one sounds like the wiser choice.

Now, when people say "The End of the World", do they mean something like the Universe is going to kill everything, or we're just going to live in a apocalyptic wasteland (like Fallout)? Cause I can totally start collecting Bottle Caps right now.
