Advice: World going to end in 2012 as predicted by the Mayans?


Dear Beerhaze,

According to the Mayans, the world will end in 2012. Many people say that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012, and that’s when Armageddon will happen. I will finally be 21 then!

Why would I have a family and kids if we are all going to die?

Is the world going to end in 2012 as predicted by the Mayans?

Dear Chocolate Lips,

Settle down! The Mayans also ate each other’s feces to keep away evil spirits. They also chopped the heads off peasants to make funky-looking Gods create rain.

2012 and the Mayan calendar is yet another New Age fart to sell books to morons. Sure, the world as we know it might very well end in 2012 by any number of reasons; be it an asteroid, super volcano, nuclear war, disease, or George W. Bush gaining magical powers.

Rest assured, if the world ends in 2012, it will have nothing to do with the Mayans. In the big scope of things – we as a human species could have been done for, even before we figured out that personal hygiene is “good stuff”.

The world could end tomorrow… You could be hit by a cement truck tomorrow… It is what it is. Just enjoy the ride! Go ahead and have a family… What’s better than having a baby sleeping on your chest and drooling all over your pyjamas?

Ok… Family and baby at 21 is too young… Go to school… Educate yourself, and will learn that the Mayans were simple (but seriously obsessive and superstitious) folks.

This whole Armageddon date thing also happened in the years: 950, 999, 1000, 1001, 1100, 1200, 1222, 1300, 1368, 1400, 1500, 1600, 1666, 1689, 1699, 1700, 1800, 1899, 1900, 1901, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004 and now 2012… The Mayans didn’t even have toilet paper but they could predict the end of the world. Yeah, that makes sense… *sigh*

Sure, maybe December 21, 2012 is the date but please don’t point to the Mayans. It’s just silly.

Ok? Clear enough? Good! Now, go read a book!
