Didn't anybody bother to think that maybe the Mayans didn't make another calendar because they were thousands of years ahead of schedule?  I know that if I made that many calendars ahead of time, I'd stop for a while.

I have it on good authority that this Mayan calendar predicting the end of the world in 2012 had a picture of a kitten playing with a ball of wool on the front. I mean, how seriously should we take that?

lalaalalaa is correct: if the Mayans had just made a calendar for the next year, like everyone else, it might have sold better and ended up in a few more Christmas stockings. Err.. once Christmas had been invented.

I'm not quite sure why I keep trying to point this out, but:

The Meso-American Long Count calendar *doesn't* end in 2012. It doesn't end in 2018 or any of the other proposed nearby dates either. At the point of the winter solstice in 2012, it will have completed one more so-called Long Year, one entire cycle of the calendar. On that day, the 14th b'ak'tun or long year starts. The only material 2012 Apocalypse-fans have to back their notion up, is that the Mayans held that the date their mythological previous world ended was the same in their calendar's notation as December 21, 2012. In fact, many Mayan predictions refer to dates after (sometimes very, very long after) 2012. The calendar itself runs on for another good 2000 years before returning to its starting point in October 4772.

All true Thomas.  But you're neglecting the fact that all the calendars after 2012 have the very same ominous cover

Creepy.

Watching a lot of CSI makes me qualified to judge these things, and my professional opinion is that cat committed suicide by hanging, or possible an overdose of sleeping pills. Life was tough for Mayan cat calendar models and some handled it better than others. ClearlyDarwin has weeded this one out, [I can't resist] .. as he will foxes and badgers.

Mayan 1 to Mayan 2: Dude, you know I was working on that Calender, right?
Mayan 2: Yeah?
Mayan 1: Things are goin well, i'm in 2012 right now.
Mayan 2: Dude... that's like 1500 years in the future. What the hell are you doing? Don't you have a wife and kids to take care off?
Mayan 1: Whoa... I've wasted my life! 14 years i'll never get back!!  FFFFUuuuuuuuuuuuuu
