New Date For The End Of The World

mayanThe Mayan date for the end of the world was wrong. For those of you who missed the news, the world did not end on Dec. 21, 2012. But there’s a new date for the end of the world, and this time it’s the real thing.

I can prove it.

The reason the Mayan prediction was wrong is that it was never meant to be a prediction. The Mayan calendar on which so many people based their fears this year was carved into a huge block of stone. That calendar expired on Dec. 21, 2012 only because the Mayan stone carver ran out of room for more dates.

But today’s calendars are done on paper. Since you can add as much paper as  you want, there’s no danger of running out of room.

So I was deeply alarmed today when the annual courtesy calendar from Carol and Donald Ashworth, the realtors who sold us our house four years ago, arrived in the mail.  I quickly flipped through it and discovered to my horror that it ends abruptly on December 31 in the year of our Lord 2013.

So there you have it.  The world will end on Dec. 31, 2013. Carol and Donald say so.

There can be no doubt.

    That is funny, love it.

    My cell phone’s calendar runs out on Dec 31, 2099. My phone was made in China and we all know how smart they are. I guess we will have to wait and see who is right.

    Happy New Year.
