December 21, 2012 - THE END IS NEAR

On Dec. 21, 2012 the Maya calendar will display the equivalent of a string of zeros, like the odometer turning over on your car, with the close of something like a millennium. In Maya calendrics, however, it's not the end of a thousand years. It's the end of Baktun 13. The Maya calendar was based on multiple cycles of time, and the baktun was one of them. A baktun is 144,000 days: a little more than 394 years.

Most of the Maya calendar intervals accumulate as multiples of 20. An interval of 7,200 days (360 × 20) was known as a katun. It takes 20 katuns to complete a baktun (20 × 7,200 = 144,000 days). Although some ancient inscriptions turn 13 baktuns into an important reset milestone - December 21, 2012.

NOW Some of you believe the the world will end on this day as all the planets align and then time just stops.

So As the end nears post your thoughts, fears, expectations and most importantly, your party plans.

on this day as all the planets align and then time just stops
That's the key element for me ...now if NASA said the planets would be aligned I'd be thinkin' ' OK, they got that right so...maybe I should seek high ground, a nice little deep cave in the mountains ' :D

It's a Y2K syndrome. The Mayans stopped at this date because they thought: "Geez, that is so far in the future (at least five years from now), someone will figure out a better way to track dates than we have. Let's not worry about that for now."

The same thing will happen to the Mayan calendar as with our own on 31 December, it just starts over.

Alignment of the earth with the center of the Milkyway is going to do exactly bupkus. Remember, gravity drops exponentially with distance. And the distances are so huge the gravitational effects will be zero. If there was such a thing we would already have noticed it because we're already quite close to that position.

Uh, the alignment of the Earth with respect to the center of the Milky Way is a pretty constant value since the formation of the galaxy. The variation that the Sun and orbital plane may impart is statistically insignificant.

Of course, when the Barnard's Star planets align, all bets are off.

Oh, hey!

The US Election is over. Barack Obama is president for four more years.

Of course, it all ends on Dec. 12, 2012. Go figure.

14 DAYS LEFT!

Have scheduled vacation day on the 21, so if the "Event" beginns at the start or end of the day - I will have Vodka in Hand.
