Maybe you needed just one more Sex Romp just before the end of the world or one more Pizza Hut Pizza stuffed crust just to be sure.

Maybe you wished you quit your job one month earlier.

Did you even read the title of the article?

"Experts: End of Mayan calendar doesn’t mean end of world"

Doesn't. That is, does NOT.

Although, a sex romp or pizza or quitting a job might still be a good idea.

When I visited the Yucatan in 2008, I took a tour of an ancient Mayan temple. The tour guide -- a Mayan descendant -- said they didn't predict the end of the world. They just only plotted out the calendar 500 years in advance and in 1512 the Spaniards made them switch to the European calendar.

Regardless of which calender they switched to, they nevertheless plotted a 500 year span. Otherwise, if the world was to continue as is, they would have used a 1,000 year or 2,000 year, etc. model. But here's the REAL confusion:

They meant not the end of the world, but the end of the world as WE know it - and we've always only known it with multiple timelines. But after 12/22/12 (or close to it), said timelines will all converge into ONE.

We'll still be here, but no more screwups will be allowed, since we'll never be able to go back in time to fix the future anymore. So whatever we do, we'd better do very carefully, because there will be no makeups or fixes. Everything - no matter how vital or trivial - will now be forever cast in stone!

But hey, no pressure...
