Yes, so you have less than a month left. If you transfer all assets to me beforehand, you've got a far better shot in the afterlife. The Mayans said it so it must be true.

Like my photography? Buy some here....

Misinterpretation of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is the basis for a popular belief that a cataclysm will take place on December 21, 2012. December 21, 2012 is simply the day that the calendar will go to the next b'ak'tun, at Long Count 13.0.0.0.0. The date on which the calendar will go to the next piktun (a complete series of 20 b'ak'tuns), at Long Count 1.0.0.0.0.0, will be on October 13, 4772.

Sandra Noble, executive director of the Mesoamerican research organization Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies, Inc. (FAMSI), notes that "for the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to make it to the end of a whole cycle". She considers the portrayal of December 2012 as a doomsday or cosmic-shift event to be "a complete fabrication and a chance for a lot of people to cash in."[23]

Well, that's good. I'm going to San Francisco on the 22nd, and the tickets were non-refundable.

We scheduled our next staff meeting on the 22nd; that way we might not have to attend.

Don't forget to live before you die.

Dammit. My staff meetings are on Tuesdays.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.
