I have been during a lot of thinking about this Mayan calender thingy. I think what happen is this. the Mayan peons were busy making calenders. when this one stops and says. hey we have these calenders up to Dec 21 2012. we have been working 14 hours a day 7 days a week for minimum wage. all management does is throw wild parties and sacrifice virgins. so they form a union and go on strike. management says no way and shuts the calender factory down. there is a rumor that the chief out sourced to China.
