I want to thank my mom, my dad, the thai food place I ate at yesterday, Bob, this morning's incredibly black coffee.

Hah! Silly Gregorian calendar! Thinking it can outrun a spam thread by calling upon some silly old Mayan prophecy to end the world before we do.

Watch your back Hebrew calendar. We're coming for you next!

It should have risen on the area where the Mayan's live by now. Probably a couple of hours ago.

yeah, sunrise was ~90 minutes ago on the east coast.

but IIRC the mayan's weren't in the eastern time zone. then again, I may be wrong.

Not that it matters, since the mayan's didn't really get the concept of leap-years. If we assume the "long count" was 5000 years (though I believe it was a bit more than that) then in that time there would have been 1250 leap days, or roughly 4 years of leap days alone.

so, the world actually ended in 2008, which that last website seems to suggest. HOLY CRAP CONSPIRACY THE MAYANS ARE WORKING WITH CERN TO DESTROY THE EARTH 4 YEARS AGO

Well, they didn't prophecise any kabloomage, as I understand it that's wholly a modern newage invention. But the year does tick over from the last year on that one calendar they found once to the first year that isn't on that calendar (though it is on other Mayan calendars they've found since) on sunrise of the solstice (regardless of leap years).

As far as I can tell the world hasn't ended here yet. If the world has ended where you are I would appreciate observations so I know what to expect when that happens here.

Gettin' in on page 2012.

Have a short story I wrote a while back.

"Llamapocalypse"

They weren’t quite sure how it happened. Not that they had a lot of time to figure it out. It might have been a freak mutation, DNA gone wrong. Might have been some sort of sickness, a ruminantarian Mad Cow Disease. There was even speculation of malevolent action.

How it happened is beyond mattering now. Somehow, a small population escaped, and they multiplied like rabbits. They grow and breed at over ten times the natural rate. They eat everything organic, strip the soil bare.

They reached a critical point sometime in March, and the population exploded. Within a week, half of Nebraska was wasteland. Some folks managed to get out. Most didn’t. The military did their best, but they were ill-prepared to fight the massive herds. Three nuclear weapons barely dented the population. Biological weapons were useless. Somehow, the Joint Chiefs didn’t anticipate warfare against llamas.

It didn’t take long for the internet to dub it ‘Llamapocalypse”. Cute name, but no one was laughing. The rest of the world will survive; they quarantined the continent immediately. They finished dynamiting the Panama Canal bridges last week. But North America is reduced to a few defensive perimeters – New York, D.C., Denver. Some will hold. Life might return to the land someday.

As for me, well, it’s times like this that I really regret ever learning math. It’s the world’s worst word problem. If the tallest building in Cincinnati is one hundred meters high, and the llamas pile on an extra meter every single hour, will my meager food supplies run out before or after I become llama chow?
