If so, in the year 4000, the calendar will fall behind by at least 0.8 but less than 1.1 days. In the year 12,000 the calendar would fall behind by at least 8 but less than 12 days.[56]
so... our current calender will be accurate to less than one day 0.8 (of a day to be specific) for four thousand years and after twelve thousand years only be off by eight to twelve days total, i'd say the mayan calender's ass has already been whooped for a while actually overall.

I hate everyone, so you don't have to.
