Like this briefing and it makes so much sense, just wish it were available to higher distribution media points... Keep up the great work

I guess the possibility of the calendar just starting over escaped the gloom and doom people. I guess they missed the part about the calendar being 5200 years before it resets. Much ado about nothing, really. People act like the sky is falling. Didn't we go through that with the Y2K idiocy?

Locally the sky did fall today, with the first serious snow of the year. Not a lot, but the biggest amount so far.

Wait, I thought the end of the world already happened, May 21, 2011, right?

Did you see my EOTWAWKI (End Of The World As We Know It) blog in which all is explained: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-blogs/the-engineering-life-around-the-web/4234020/Counting-down-to-the-EOTWAWKI

The world actually ended at midnight on Dec 31,1999 (ie just before Y2K). However, most people were too drunk to notice....

But what about Dark Matter and Dark Energy? They can't be up to anything good! NASA's keeping mum on this and I, for one, expect that there's a dark satanic conspiracy at the root of it. NASA's “Why the world didn’t end yesterday" is probably just a cover-up to shield us from the real truth that ancient reptilian aliens, disguised as human, are exploiting the earth for their own financial gain.

Remember the Hale Bopp comet? I estimate about the same number of people are concerned with rolling the Mayan calendar over to Ver 2.0.

I'd be a lot more concerned with Windows 8 than the Mayan calendar. It sounds like it's everything I don't want in an operating system. What's up with those folks in Redmond? Don't they understand some of us use computers as tools, not entertainment. My company is still using XP. We're about to roll out Win 7 and I'm not looking forward to the churn this will cause my system. Yeah, the IT folks have been testing 7 for over a year, blah, blah, blah, but with every "upgrade", there is ALWAYS pain and suffering, especially with the engineering tools which the IT folks understand the least.

Yes, of course they understand that some of us use computers as tools; but they also understand that the really big money is in entertainment, just as in other fields.

Why didn't the Mayan's calculate another long count? Simple, the conquistadors showed up and wiped them out. Funny how every time the white man shows up indigenous peoples get wiped out.

Does the world end Friday 12-21-12 at 12:01AM GMT, or say 12:01AM Mayan Std time which could be Mountain Std or Pacific Std time. Does the entire Earth go poof at that instant or does each time zone go over the armageddian cliff in an orderly procession?
