    Ever tried Dijonnaise? Like Mayo but with mustard. Well tasty.

    I wonder where this myth started. Considering it's not actually a Mayan prophecy of any kind, who just randomly made it up one day? And then it somehow caught on even though all the living Mayans deny it? It's weird. Similar to the planet X type idiocy.

    I don't care enough to investigate the truth to this, but I think today is the date their calendar ends.

    it's when their calendar cycle ends. and then a new one starts


    decided to play as pacal in civ4 in celebration but i landed on an island with no-one else so i was doomed.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Yea, it's the long count calendar. But it's sort of like after December, you have January again. The calendar just recycles, the mayans never thought or claimed it meant the end of the world (not that it would have mattered if they had).

    But apparently some people inferred that's what it meant - which is what I'm wondering. Who started it?

    Always thought the Aztecs were the superior indigenous extinct civilisation from the Americas anyway.

    Mayan calander ends, no-one preordered the new one. Basic procurement error causing the alleged end of the world. Happens to any mid sized business.
