The 21st isn't over yet. Still plenty of time for that comet to hit....
First off, Happy New B'ak'tun, everybody!
I read an article on a couple of the more "popular" ways to go this morning, and why they didn't happen:
1). Cosmic lineup with the Galactic Super Black-Hole.
To begin, the gravitational pull from this "effect" is less than the gravitational pull you feel from your car while standing next to it. Secondly, the "lineup" at best is 5 degrees off. Third, and most importantly, it happened on the 19th!
2). Massive solar flair due to the peak in the 11 year Sunspot Cycle:
The peak happens next year. The mathematical wizards who calculated this are some of those now using the excuse that "the Mayans didn't account for leap years" are the ones that forget "leap years" are the creation of the European world.
The focus for this fiasco has centered on the " b'ak'tun ", or long count cycle of just over 5100 years. Nobody seems to want to mention that there are two larger cycles in Mayan reconning, the largest being some 63 million years!
See you around
I dunno, looks like we are there to me
More like this...
It is a drug for the poor, and its effects are horrific. It was given its reptilian name because its poisonous ingredients quickly turn the skin scaly. Worse follows. Oleg and Sasha have not been using for long, but Oleg has rotting sores on the back of his neck.
"If you miss the vein, that's an abscess straight away," says Sasha. Essentially, they are injecting poison directly into their flesh. One of their friends, in a neighbouring apartment block, is further down the line.
"She won't go to hospital, she just keeps injecting. Her flesh is falling off and she can hardly move anymore," says Sasha. Photographs of late-stage krokodil addicts are disturbing in the extreme. Flesh goes grey and peels away to leave bones exposed. People literally rot to death.
Got off work, went straight to the bar, drank a ton of beer.
Waited for the world to end so I wouldn't have to pay .......
Damn you Mayans!!!! Damn youse all!!!!!!!!

I put pants on in anticipation of the end of the world....
Never going to do that again.
